About W. Chris Fooshee

_MG_9219“I am a Florida native. I capture images of nature to inspire, to intrigue, and to soothe.

My interest in art and nature began early in life. I pursued art during high school and junior college, and worked for several years in a professional photo studio and then for a film studio.

However, the gift of an orchid plant from a friend stirred my curiosity in botany and the sciences. I became focused, changed direction and attended the University of Florida where I received my BS and MS in Plant Sciences.

After working in ornamental plant breeding research at the UF Mid-Florida Research and Education Center for about 12 years, I again redirected my interests into information technology there, and I recently retired as IT coordinator. Circuitously, this non-traditional path returned me to my enduring passions – nature and photography via the sciences, computers and digital cameras.”
