Dennis Sabo is an internationally-recognized photographer specializing in abstract, landscape, and seascape photography. He minored in photography in college. He began his career in underwater photography while owning a marketing company. He promoted scuba resorts and live-aboard scuba yachts throughout the world. Dennis moved into photojournalism from there. He covered subjects ranging from college sports and lifestyle products to NASA rocket launches.
In 2004, Dennis’s career shifted to fine art photography. During a trip to Africa, he visited the springtime floods of the Okavango. He observed that
“during that period the colors, textures, and patterns of [that] aquatic marshland was like a Garden of Eden. It was in Africa that I started playing with color, light, form, and texture.”
Today, light, color, and shapes play pivotal roles in Dennis’s photography. His photography of the natural world captures the light and its effect on the landscape. Most of his nature imagery is a microcosm of a subject, whether an ocean beach, a marsh pond, a pond reflection, or other natural phenomenon.
His goal is
“to evoke an emotional experience for a viewer. Perhaps it is how the subject is bathed in light, perhaps it is the lines of the subject that draws you in, or simply it is an image that you enjoy viewing. My interest is in the natural details; how the environment on a particular day, in a particular light, and at a particular moment in time correlates to my personal vision and interpretation of nature.”
Dennis’s fine art is exhibited in solo and group gallery exhibitions, commercial installations, and private home collections. It is featured in books and magazines, and in multimedia such as NOVA, PBS, National Geographic, Canon U.S.A., Inc., Anthology of Appalachian Photographers, and Blue Planet.
