Wilderness photographer Alan Majchrowicz is fortunate to be able to combine his passion for the outdoors with his profession. Born and raised in the Midwest, Alan studied photography and painting at The Art Institute of Chicago. Responding to the call of the wild Pacific Northwest in 1980, he moved to Washington State. Since then he has hiked, backpacked, and driven throughout the region, using a large format camera to photograph the spectacular land and seascapes used in his art, prints and posters.
While exploring this scenic and expansive territory, Alan takes time to photograph shells and flowers he finds in mountain streams and valleys. His art, prints and posters capture the perfection and fragility of objects found in nature and serves to remind us of our human impact upon the natural environment. "Producing images that inspire and move the viewer” is both Alan's goal and his reward for his life's work.
Alan's photographs have been exhibited throughout the Northwest and are included in private and public collections. He is also represented through stock agencies and corporate art dealers. His art, prints and posters have appeared as greeting cards, in advertising campaigns, calendars, and many national magazines including Backpacker, Country Journal, and US News and World Report.
