was launched by Dennis Gingerich
in 2006. Although photography has been an interest of Dennis' for many years, living in southwest Florida since 1986 has developed his love of nature and provided many opportunities to make a hobby out of photographing landscapes, birds, flowers and wildlife. Dennis has won multiple awards with his photography, including 2nd Place Overall winner in the 2016 "The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel" contest. His images have been used in advertisements by the City of Cape Coral and several Chamber of Commerce organizations to attract businesses and residents to the area. In 2016, he was selected to serve a six month time period as Resident Artist for Lee County Visitors and Conventions Bureau with his photos being used to attract tourists to visit the area. In 2017, his "Boat on Fire" image won First Place in the Cape Coral Art League "Art Thru the Lens" contest. The same image was one of ten photos selected by a jury of the Lee County Alliance for the Arts to be displayed as a framed "36x54" print at the Southwest Florida International Airport for one year, beginning July 2017. In addition to this website, Dennis markets his local naturescape images in a line of greeting cards and prints at several Southwest Florida gift shops. Dennis is an active member of the Florida Camera Club Council, the DPI-SIG Naples Digital Photography Club, and NANPA (North American Nature Photographers Association). Gingerich PhotoArt is a licensed and registered business in the city, county and state where it is located.
