Lynette Gram divides her time between Burtchville, MI, where her studio is, and Bonita Springs, FL. Photographing antiques, collectables and interesting old things has become her focus in life.
Since her gradeschool fieldtrips with the family ‘Brownie’ camera, Lynette has loved photography. She progressed to digital photography in 2015, and began a self taught learning journey. Starting with In Studio Portrait Photography and Enviromental Portraits, her work has been published in ‘Grand Traverse Women’.
In 2000 she came down with a permanent Vertigo issue which affected her movement greatly. Still Life was the answer! She found a deep love for this style, and already being an antique enthusiast, Still Life was a perfect match!
Captivated with the beauty in antiques, she also loves the stories behind each. Their signs of age and wear enhance their uniqueness and draw you into their history and purpose. Instead of being defeated by Vertigo, she is thankful to be able to shoot what she knows and loves.
‘Light Painting’ or ‘Light Sculpting’ has become her favorite technique. This is done in a dark studio using a long exposure setting and a modified flashlight or wand to light precise areas in order to bring out all the texture and details of each subject.
Flowers and Nature are also loved subject for Lynette. Her quest is to share the aesthetics of the natural world. From the exquisite grace and elegance in flowers to the majesty and magic of landscapes and waterways.
Photography allows her to capture all the details, color, character and moods around her.
