Don Schimmel

About the Artist

I am a graduate of Cal State Fullerton in Photocommunications. I have been a professional photographer for forty years, participating in Fine Art Festivals for the past 20 years. My image, "The Last Roundup" was named The Los Angeles Times Photo of the year. I am known for my Cowboy and Western photography, I also incorporate scenic and landscape imagery to complete my portfolio. I shoot with 35mm from horseback; while utilizing large format and panoramic film cameras for imagery where a tripod becomes my best friend. After spending 40 years in the dark room I've refined my craft through wisdom only obtainable through hands-on learning. As far as equipment, I'm reminded of what Ansel Adams once said, "I use my eyes!"
