Laura Beverly Zachry, is a native of Thomasville, Georgia, deep in the southwest corner of the
state, an area renowned for the subtle beauty of its soaring longleaf pine forests and moss-
covered live oaks. She graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in English and
eventually settled in San Antonio, Texas, where she found the landscape boasting a profusion of
hot-colored wildflowers, starkly beautiful cactus and a variety of wildlife posing against the
backdrop a wide-open Texas sky.
Laura has been lucky to have spent much of the past few summers in paradise also known as, Montana. There she has found an endless number of subjects to photograph from the spots of a beautiful brown to the mysteries of Yellowstone.
A Word from Laura:
My pursuit of professional photography evolved organically from a deep, lifelong appreciation of the natural beauty of my native South Georgia and adopted home of south Texas. I have always felt a strong sense of connecting to the natural environment, and my years living in diverse landscapes seem to have fostered an undeniable urge to capture these places with a camera lens. I can literally disappear for hours in pursuit of these images.
I find the stunning, minute detail of macro photography especially gratifying, when I can magnify the intricate details of a flower petal, the perfect pattern of rings in a tree or the brilliant costume of a caterpillar that may have ordinarily gone unnoticed. I am constantly amazed and in awe of the beauty in the details of the world in which we live. That's really what photography does for me and, I hope, the viewer: it takes the ordinary sights of our daily lives and reminds us to seek the beauty of our world and soak it in for at least a moment. I hope you find as much joy in looking at my work as I do in making it.
