Fine-Art photographs by Ted Davis are collected by a wide range of international clients, both private and corporate, and as a member of The Royal Photographic Society of the UK, many of his photographs have been exhibited over the years in its prestigious international exhibitions.
Davis began his photography career while studying theatre at the University of Texas at Austin. “The other student actors hired me to do their head shots!’ He went on to spend twenty years in Los Angeles, California, working both as a pro-photographer (Perseus Publishing, Warner Bros Television) and as a film and television actor, with numerous acting roles in television and film (Doc Hollywood, Seinfeld, Married With Children, The West Wing.) Reflecting on his Hollywood past, Davis says “Creating a compelling photograph, from my perspective, is theatre, and very similar to directing a film or play. A story is told, with color, light and texture as featured actors in the show, each with a key role to play.”
I also love the history of photography. From Nicephore Niepce who created the very first photograph with lavender tar, to the latest digital tech and everything in between, I love it all and hence influences my work. It’s all part of the show!”
The show created, whether a sumptuous still-life, luminous landscape, or environmental portrait, is always a rich piece of striking art.
