Photographer Drew Reese was born in Annapolis, MD in 1947 and was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area where he later studied photography at San Francisco State College with Catherine Wagner and Henry Wessel. His work has been exhibited in many group shows in the bay area.
A Joshua Tree resident since 2000 - he is co-owner of Spin and Margie’s Desert Hideaway in Joshua Tree, Ca. When not running his business with his wife, Drew spends his time photographing in Joshua Tree National Park and the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve.
His challenge is to see the “familiar” in a unique way. Ever alert to the shapes, textures, and colors, as he travels thru the landscape, sometimes moving in close in order to see more abstractly, other times only focusing on the light and the form.
He pre-visualizes how the photo might look when printed. In some of his more painterly photographs he uses various filters, textures and borders in post processing to achieve the effect he is looking for. Each picture tells it’s own story.
