A message from our exhibiting artist…
I moved to London 13 years ago, after living in New Orleans all my life, and am honored to have this opportunity.
For over 30 years I’ve worked in the maritime industry and, after moving to London from New Orleans, I started my own business, Salyers Solutions, LLC, as a consultant. My work consists of auditing and surveying towboats around the country as well as training and speaking at organizations regarding fatigue mitigation on the vessels.
The title of my show, Photography on Deck and Beyond, represents some of the photos I’ve taken while working on the waterways. Since I need to travel for my business it affords me the opportunity to enjoy my hobby of photography while doing a job I love.
Some of the unique areas from my jobs, and vacations, that are represented in the photographs displayed here are Valdez, AK; Charleston, WV; New York City; St. Paul, MN; Burlington, IA; St. Augustine, FL; Harbor Island, Bahamas; Iceland; and, last but not least, New Orleans.
I am truly blessed with the opportunities for my business, my amazing family and friends, and this wonderful organization – London Visual Arts Guild – to be able to share my passion for photography with you!
If you are interested in any of the photos in different sizes or types (canvas or print) my contact information is on my business card at Gallery on High.
