About Fine Art Photography

C J Eklund Fine Art Photography. Artist. Wanderluster. Storyteller. I narrate stories with art. Let me narrate your story.

What is fine art photography?

Welcome to C J Eklund Fine Art Photography. I offer Photographic services for Weddings, Portraits, Travel and Editorial and I also offer some educational services, but you might be wondering what fine art photography is. The dictionary defines it as “Fine art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer.” which means that it goes beyond simply capturing what is there and relies heavily on the photographer to input their artistic skill and vision into the images they create.

Let’s work together!

What a Fine Art Photographer can do for you.

When you commission an artist to document moments in your life, you enlist not just a professional photographer, but also someone who is dedicated to creating artworks of your life that you want to showcase. With over 10 years of experience in the wedding industry and an education in art and photography, you can be sure that you are choosing to work with someone who values your life’s moments in the same way and to capture and interpret them competently and beautifully.

Why I make my art.

I love capturing moments, I love light, travelling and I love love. I like to tell stories through my art and to make an image tell a story.

What inspires me to make it.

Old movies, famous photographers, photojournalism, beauty, books, travelling and adventure, sunset and sunrise.

What it signifies or represents.

My art represents how I see the world; full of love, friendship and light. I like to tell stories through my photos.

What’s unique or special about how I make it.

I give all work my all and I genuinely care about my clients; to know them and successfully tell their stories. To be the narrator through an artistic and cinematic medium while remaining organic in nature.

What it means to me.

My art is my life. It’s the luminous ember inside of me.
