Pete Vander Velde Photography

Artist statement: I love art. Abstract and landscape.  Portrait and macro. I try to implement these into my photography.  I strive to achieve a unique view of everyday objects. I take a familiar landscape or object and through vision and my computer, turn it into something that would add a focal point to any home.
