Welcome to Holly Davison Photography! Pour a cup of coffee, kick back, and enjoy. I'm glad you came for a visit. ~Holly
I am part of a local photography club here on Whidbey Island. We meet monthly discussing different aspects of photography from technical information to composition to sharing about our experiences. We end each meeting with sharing five images. Sometimes we share older images, but for the most part these are to be new images thus encouraging us to get out there and shoot. I am going to make this blog a monthly installment for 2018 giving you a glimpse of my new images each month. Steve McCurry says, “If you want to be a photographer, you have to photograph.” So I am going to try to schedule at least one outing every month to focus on new compositions and techniques in the field. For the January camera club meeting I shared some images from my recent two day camping trip to La Push. La Push is a place I grew up camping at. It is a place I frequent often and have photographed many times over the years. This trip I worked really hard to see this couple mile stretch of beach with fresh eyes. I still have more images to process from this outing, but here are the five I shared at this months meeting. Thanks for stopping by! ~Holly
Happy New Year! This is one of my most favorite blog posts of the year. Narrowing down my top 10 images is incredibly difficult, but it gives me a chance to reflect and evaluate my year, my growth and my challenges. It has been a busy year for me both personally and professionally. I completed my first full year showing my astrophotography at Whidbey Art Gallery, started leading workshops, taught for my local camera club, and photographed family outdoor documentary sessions and a wedding all while supporting my husband in his volunteer firefighter/emt endeavors and homeschooling three energetic boys. Phew! My outings this year were more sporadic as I focused on life on the home front, but I am pleased with the images I am presenting to you and ready to take on 2018 head on. A little about my 10 images, the first four are coastal images which I have been experimenting with water, reflections, and shutter speed. The next two are from a magical day I spent alone at Mount Rainier which filled me with peace helped me reframe my thinking about composition and landscapes. Then I included my two favorite astrophotography shots of 2017. Both are single images, in fact all of my images are single file RAW images, no blends, processed in Lightroom and Photoshop. Lastly I included my favorite macro shot and one from my personal projects to round out the top ten on 2017. Enjoy! ~Holly
From my family to yours wishing you a blessed holiday season!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Sneak Peak of a fun senior photo shoot I had with Miss Hannah and her very sweet friend. Horses and high heels! It doesn't get much better for this adorable, hard working high school senior. The camera loved them both!
