George Leroy Hunter is a photographer and writer based in the United States of America. Photography has been a life-long passion of his ever since he was given his first camera by a neighbor as a child.
Hunter did still photography and video work for stage and music productions during his school years. He is not a one trick pony. He has worked for many companies including one of the biggest elevator design firms in the world all the while keeping up with the latest photography trends from the film era to the digital age.
The art world can be a cold place and an artist has to be like a well conditioned boxer. An artist has to learn to bob and weave, work the ropes and roll with the punches that are thrown at him or her and when an opportunity presents itself, strike and leave an impression. What kind of impression? Well that's up to the viewing public to decide.
There is a wide range of subjects in Hunter's portfolio. He considers the world his studio and the colors of the seasons as his palette.

A photograph should always provoke some type of reaction. Reaction to a photograph may cause a wide range of emotion, happiness, sadness, anger etc. but whatever the feeling, it is a reaction. In order for these reactions to occur something has to create them and that something can be anything. The world we live in is a huge complex place full of all kinds of sights, sounds, smells, and flavors. How we react to these sights, sounds, smells, and flavors is unique to each individual person.
Images in the form of rock paintings and carvings created by ancient man centuries ago can be found all over the world. Ancient man saw something that caused a feeling or reaction within him strong enough to compel him to carve a piece of rock or paint the side of a cave. My passion in life is photography and a camera is the tool I use to create the image that cause a reaction from the one who sees the picture. My portfolio contains photographs of a wide range of subjects and no doubt cause a wide range of reactions.
I don't like to talk too much about my photographs because I want my photographs to do the talking for me and what they have to say is going to be different to each individual who sees them. Among these images on display you may or may not see anything you like because as an old saying goes Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder. Whatever reaction or feelings these photographs create within you is not important to me. The fact that the image caught your eye to begin with satisfies me.
