Petportrait

Donnasue and Fred offer pet portraits and custom pet greeting cards that can be individually customized. Our pet portraits can be used in POD books, or for family albums.

Donnasue was accepted into the Sanchez Art Gallery juried show called 50-50 in which she produced 50 works in 50 days, followed by a grand opening reception and month long show at the gallery. Her theme was Dogs at Play and she found it to be thoroughly fun and joyful to be able to photograph dogs playing. Donnsue is grateful to the owners for allowing her to get up close and personal while their dogs play with exuberant abandon.

Fred Roessler Photographer

For my personal artistic expression, I photograph animals, landscapes, and city scenes. When I photograph animals, I look for character and personality in the animals. When photographing nature or historical places, such as Heritage Grove or Willow Creek Ranch in Pescadero, I try to capture the character of older forgotten times viewing the world through a less-hurried and gentler pace. With my photography I try to emphasize the importance of protecting special places like the open areas within San Mateo County.

I work with traditional black and white film and have added various treatments to the finished prints. I have selenium or sepia toned my prints, and have hand painted images with a heavy-pigmented oil paint; a process now experiencing a new popularity. My goal is to produce a print that is true to the details of the original subject. I use novel techniques to reflect my vision of a subject. Printing in black and white reflects an honest sense of our environment and history, along with a sense of timelessness that current color printing processes sometimes lose. All of my prints are original which is a major benefit for the collector.

I enjoy making close-ups of details in plants, animals, and architectural elements. I also love the vastness of the ocean and foothills in my landscapes. Objects of vital detail and texture receive extra attention in my close-ups.

I often exhibit my work at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto and in other venues in the San Francisco Bay Area.
