Your clients have space to fill. You’ve been hired to fill it. Maybe it’s a palette you need to work within. A mood you need to evoke. A texture.
They may want something peaceful to look at. Easy to access. Or perhaps something more challenging that stimulates your curiosity and mystifies you. Almost like a puzzle. A hidden story behind the art.
Some photographs are interesting and beautiful on their face. On a first-sight level, and only get more intriguing when you come to realize exactly what it is you’re seeing.
Think of this as a toolbox. Or a travelogue. Or a treasure box you can dig through. Sooner or later, you’ll be asked to curate a room, a home, or a business, and you’ll come back to these images and artistry. Hopefully, you’ll call me.
And we’ll do great work together. Enjoy.
Dave Bassett, Nevada Artist
What I offer today is a combination of my commercial experiences and my art photography and my love of the outdoors. I do not use paint and cloth canvas. But I do have my vision, my plan and my imagination and nearly every color under the rainbow and a substantial and growing archive of abstract, derivative and scenic images. These are my canvases and my paints. Malleable, adaptable and compliant and used by me in collaboration with designers who can be curators for creating images, often of substantial size with the appropriate subjects, textures and color palettes. In the end I am just a small part of your interior design process, a path to unique and custom visuals that will be compliant or bold, interesting or subdued, long lasting and always made and delivered locally. No need to go far and deep into the inner-web-art-world. I am here when you want to keep it close. Keep it local. And keep it custom.
The days of film and processing have given way to the science of engineering and sensors and software. Beautiful, evocative images. What and where is new the landscape of the experimental and happy accidents … who can say? We are all evolving and moving forward in fine art photography. A new aesthetic awaits and will appear beyond the gigabytes of capture and storage as the photographic applications and deployments evolve. Let’s break the rules and find a unique new way of image making!
Photographic panoramas and especially aerial panoramas are what I consider to be some of the more thought-invoking attention-retaining and compelling images that might be planned and executed for commercial or fine art applications. And the magic conjured is so much more involved than cropping a section of a wide-angle image to fit a format. Its literally adding together a series of 5 to 12 images. This is one way that the physics of light-traveling-in-a-straight-line might be harnessed and appreciated. View Panoramas Gallery
Basset Studios Nevada landscape photography …
Nearly all my Nevada landscape photographs and nearly every one of my Nevada scenic panoramic images have been the result of intentionally studying maps, gathering gear, collecting provisions, figuring out food, shelter, water, transportation and fuel and heading out into the vastness that is the Basin & Range of Nevada.

Within the category of scenic landscape photography it is fun to imagine and remember that all art borrows from its predecessors. This is a good and relevant history. Basics of composition, lighting, rules of thirds are happily and traditionally the tools available to photographers even to this day. When working on scenic landscapes there are a lot of other details involved- maps, travel, time, destinations, vehicles, provisions and gear and even more gear. Hear about it. Find it on the map, think about it, and get out there with some atmosphere and magic light – and don’t run out of film! View Scenics Gallery
Abstract and textures fine art photography is a technique and style and vision that gives voice to the wandering and unspoken – one thing today and another thing tomorrow. A timeless way to appreciate and enjoy modern digital image making in the traditional and the new way of seeing and experiencing the world around so close and at times so far removed.

Derivative photography includes affiliated images, attributed imagery and similars. In thoughtful proprietary hands images can multiply … can be very colorful … thematic … near complimentary … even monochromatic. Magically they evolve and become members of a family of images, part of a sequence or better yet part of an experience. Often times they are inspired by travel, hobbies, or fascinations. Similar, affiliated, congruent, thematic – to me its all part of my family of fine art photography images. View Derivatives Gallery
