Long Island Photo Gallery is currently showing three beautifully custom made pieces here in Islip, NY. You must see LaBella’s caliber of detail and styling in person. The images he continually presents to Long Island Photo Gallery are sharp, perfectly exposed, and just brilliant with the overall composition.
Rich LaBella has been displaying his beautiful artwork with Long Island Photo Gallery for the past eight years. During this time, LaBella has been developing and honing his online portfolio along with continually delivering new art to the gallery for display in Islip, NY.
I photograph mostly nautical and wildlife themes, concentrating on our shorelines & bays, yachting, the bridges, wetlands, lighthouses, wildlife, flowers, and the unique things that make living near & on the water on Long Island and elsewhere a special experience.
Early in life, I realized that we tend to be oblivious to much of the beauty that surrounds us. I am an advocate of bringing awareness of that often-overlooked beauty in nature and wildlife behavior through my work. I prefer dynamic images to static “portraits” and try to bring a better appreciation & understanding of our world through showing the interaction of nature, creatures, objects, and places that we might not notice around us.
Over the years, through a better understanding of light & composition, my work has matured into a sizeable portfolio of quality photographs.
I have been particularly influenced by both Art Wolfe’s & Chas Glatzer’s approach to photography. Through Art Wolfe, I learned to approach my works based on the principles of composition to bring out the beauty of nature & the environment. Chas Glatzer showed me that “light illuminates, shadow defines” and that a three-dimensional image was indeed possible in a two-dimensional medium. With that foundation and the help of many talented Nature & Wildlife photographers, I was able to develop and fine-tune my visionary approach, technical execution, and post-processing skills in producing fine art which accentuates the interaction of light and color.
“I hope my work brings you as much enjoyment as it gave me in composing and capturing the beauty of our environment.” – Rich LaBella, 2012
