As a graduate of Minneapolis College of Art & Design in 2006 (BFA in Media), Justin Bullis has stepped quickly into the art of freelance photography. He has been providing clients with the highest quality images available. His creative use of digital media and formal skills have proven to be of great value. A complete technical understanding is the foundation to Bullis’ sociological and other conceptual ideas in photography.


Artist’s Statement

The work I’ve been creating has taken me on an exploration of light and color, and that is exactly what photography is—the process of recording light, but my work is, by no means, limited to this definition.  I am in constant search of more than just perfect natural lighting situations for landscapes.  I intend to show coincidences within the elements of composition as well, such as balance, unity, color, contrast & wide tonal range, shape & form and more.

Within the elements of composition comes something even greater to me: The developments, manipulations, alterations, and overall disturbance that humans have caused to our environments.  The past thousand years have shown drastic change of these natural environments because of the exponential increase in our population and our expansive living areas.  My work is not objectively about this idea, but rather, it ties together the natural beauty of landscapes with our intrusive structures and how the two entities interact and exist with one another in some sort of balance.  I don’t want to make nature look glorified and I don’t want to make steril objects look ugly or unappealing, but I do want to incorporate both elements into a harmony of visual balance that mimic one another so that viewers are aware of issues within the context of each image.
