April Austin Images

I want my photographic images to extend an experience naturally. Our eyes might see something for an instant, but photography allows us to repeatedly enjoy it. I don't use preset software filters to sell a trend, but I enjoy creating digital oil paintings from photographs. Original art is a beautiful way to handcraft a memory.

I travel frequently and capture what appeals to me. I'm available for custom travel photography, destination weddings, and digital artwork.

Who Am I?

I am a portrait and wildlife photographer having won numerous awards including the Silver Honor of Excellence Award from WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International).  I've taken photographs for over 40 years and been a professional photographer for the last eight. I am a former British literature professor from the University of Missouri - Kansas City; competitive USTA tennis player; and international dressage rider.  

After a career in education, I now devote my time to photography and digital art.  I love movement, nature, bold color, and the joy of creativity.


"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way."

William Blake, The Letters, 1799.
