“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance.” ~ Aristotle
Welcome to Lois Bryan Photography and Digital Art Blog at 1st Angel Arts Magazine!
I’m a photographer / photography-based digital artist living in the mid-Atlantic area of the US. My images are mostly colorful representations of places I’ve been and things I find beautiful and uplifting. Here at my blog you’ll find many of my latest photographic and artistic images plus loads of juicy insider personal information. Well … no not really, lol. But … plenty of ramblings and musings on life in general … observations, maybe even amusing ones, on things most of us have in common. All this in addition to showing off my images … some of which I hope will strike a chord with you in memory or association … something that just might be meaningful to you, as they are to me.
Images that I include here can be viewed and purchased on my website (or just click each to be taken right to a better resolution with less ridiculous watermark), and are all my own unless otherwise stated (I sometimes highlight my son’s beautiful photography and will always mention that in the image description). They are based on the snaps I capture, mostly with Nikon cameras and lenses. Though my goal will always be to catch that perfect shot straight out of the camera, I also enjoy exploring the artistic and creative process as I work with Photoshop and other image editing programs.
I’d love to have you visit my main website to view a great selection of photography and photography-based digital images as fine wall art, greeting cards, tote bags and other products. They make unique and lovely gifts … (and don’t forget a little something for yourself!) … at Lois Bryan Fine Art. Many images are also available on additional products such as electronics’ covers, mugs and more at my Redbubble store.
Several of my images are available for Rights Managed licenses at Lois Bryan Commercial Licensing. If you see one you like but which is not yet available in the license you’re looking for, please feel free to contact me in the box below. I’ll usually get back to you the same day.

A tiny bit of horn tooting (it’s called “shameless self-promotion” … forgive me … ): My images can be found in homes and businesses around the world … these include several used by ABC Television for the set of one of their most popular network programs; twelve images licensed by the Mayo Clinic for their prestigious 2013 Mayo Clinic Promotional Calendar; and one of my most popular winter scenic images which was licensed by Comda Advertising Connections Company for their 2015 Pennsylvania Calendar. I was featured on The Untapped Source’s “Meanwhile In Art” page in October of 2013 as Artist of the Week; and I was interviewed in the December, 2013 edition of Trillium Magazine . I’m also honored that two of my images were chosen by St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital for their 2014 DC Gourmet Gala Fundraiser.
And finally, one of my own personal favorites was recently chosen to be featured on the Home Page of prestigious Fine Art America, online home to over 100,000 living artists:
