Connecticut Scenics ®  Official Site

● Connecticut Scenics ® was created in 1999 by photographer Peter Guerard and his wife, Michele Morrissey, as a vehicle to display and sell images of their work. Peter has been a photographer since the early 70's, and has shot images from Long Island Sound in southern New England to the Berkshire Mountains in western New England. No longer participating in Arts & Crafts shows, Peter now presents technical lectures on landscape photography to various photography groups within Connecticut. Individual instruction is also available.

● Peter and Michele are both self-taught photographers. Peter is a graduate of the University of Hartford with a BS degree in Chemistry and an MBA in Operations Research. He has recently retired from corporate life. Michele is a customer service representative for an international shipping firm.

● Some of the images displayed on this website are from a library of over 5,000 35mm transparencies. In 2008 we made the switch to digital. Transparencies were scanned into the computer with a Nikon LS5000 Coolscan. RAW digital images are converted to TIFF files with minimal adjustments in Photoshop.

● Images are printed on an Epson wide-carriage printer using Epson Ultrachrome archival pigment inks and Luster paper. The prints are then cold-mounted on Alpharag archival matte boards, framed with Nielsen black museum frames and UV-conservation glass to preserve the image. Print longevity is estimated to be about 160 years.
