About Connecticut Scenics ®...
● Connecticut Scenics ® was created in
1999 by photographer Peter Guerard and his wife, Michele Morrissey, as a
vehicle to display and sell images of their work at Arts & Crafts shows.
Peter has been a photographer since the early 70's, and, as the slogan
on the home page implies, has shot images from Long Island Sound in
southern New England to the Berkshire Mountains in western New England.
He is a member of the Charter Oak Photographic Society, North American
Nature Photographers Association, the West Hartford Art League, and the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce.
● Peter and Michele are self-taught
with no formal education in photography or the arts. Peter is a graduate of the
University of Hartford with a BS degree in Chemistry and an MBA in
Operations Research. He is recently retired. Michele is a customer service representative for an
international shipping firm.
● Most of the images displayed on
this website are from a library of over 10,000 35mm transparencies. In 2008 we made the switch
to digital. Transparencies are scanned into the computer with an Nikon LS5000 Coolscan.
RAW digital images are converted to TIFF files with minimal adjustments in Photoshop.
● Prints for sale at Arts & Crafts
shows are printed on an Epson wide-carriage printer using Epson Ultrachrome archival pigment inks and Luster paper.
The prints are then cold-mounted on Exeter archival matte boards, framed with Nielsen black museum frames, with UV-reflecting
glass to preserve the image. Print longevity is estimated to be about 160 years.
