About Me - Blake Simpson

I am a 23 year old Photographic Artist based out of Southern California. As a child, yearly trips to the Oregon Coast instilled in me a love of wilderness landscapes and an urge to explore and create in these locations. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UCLA in an effort to better understand and preserve the environment that I derive my passion and inspiration from. With an occupation in Project Engineering and General Contracting, I understand the design and construction of a living space from start to finish and realize the importance that Fine Art brings to your home. Through my photography, I do not seek to strictly document what is seen in nature. Instead, I create unique interpretations of scenes that express thoughts and emotions and embody the wildness of the location. Furthermore, I seek to inspire others to get to know nature and understand the importance of wilderness. I want everyone in current and future generations to be able to experience the same sense of wonder and freedom that I feel every time I step foot into the wild. 

Please view my "Prints" page to learn how Fine Art can enrich the living experience in your home. I also create commercial work - I enjoy telling stories through my art and am available for commission to create works of art that meet your needs, whatever they may be.
