Tribute to the Gifted Nature Photographer Bryan Jensen 

            I was introduced into the world of art, when I lived in Greenwich Village, New York. My father, a physician, had many close personal friends who were talented artists. He commissioned Franz Kline, who was first a contemporary artist to paint portraits of me, my brother, and my mother. He welcomed our family into his gifted artistic community to meet his close friends like Jackson Pollock, who joined together to develop abstract impressionistic art.

            Inspired by this magnificent introduction into the field of art, I have spent many years of my life searching for other great artists. While I was a Distinguished Professor of Plastic Surgery, Biomedical Engineering, and Emergency Medicine at the University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville, Virginia, Mark Collins introduced me into the field of photorealistic art. His transparent watercolors are widely recognized for the abundance of detail, dramatic lighting, palpable texture and luminous color. Two of his original paintings and many of his prints enhance the inner beauty of my home.

            When I became Director of Trauma Prevention, Research and Education at Trauma Specialists LLP at Legacy Emanuel Hospital, Portland, Oregon, I was awakened by a new scope in art, created by the gifted Nature Photographer, Bryan Jensen who has brought new dimensions to the magnificent field of nature photography. As a resident of Portland, Oregon, he has captured inspiring scenes of the Pacific Northwest in his inspirational photographs that now hang on my wall. As a master of modern photographic technology, he has made memorable pictures of the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. One of my favorite pictures done by this skilled artist is his picture of Multnomah Falls as well as that of Mount Hood. His pictures have become a wonderful way for me to buy gifts of his photographs that become a lasting gesture of gratitude and appreciation to my gifted family, colleagues and friends in the Pacific Northwest as well as throughout the world.

            For those like me that have become addicted to the photographic masterpieces of Bryan Jensen, I have an important reminder for each of you. You need to select a design consultant and picture framer whose unique talents will complement the work of this extraordinary photographer. Consequently, I rely heavily on the talents of Karen Armstrong (Beard Framing  7720 Northeast Highway 99, Vancouver, WA 98665) as well as Neil Edwards (Beard Framing 11413 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Highway, Beaverton, Oregon 97005). While you can get Bryan Jensen's beautiful photographs from his website, I would encourage you to make an appointment with these gifted framers to be sure that the frame compliments Bryan Jensen's photographic excellence.
