Welcome to FyneFoto.com, the photo page for Barbara Houston. These pages will be a link to all of the photos I have posted in various places.
I currently live in New Kent Virginia with my husband of 25 years, my 16 year old soccer-loving son, my 22 year old daughter and husband, and don’t forget my three dogs: Jazz, Izzy, and grand-pup rescue dog Dwight. We have a five acre spread in the middle of nowhere. Well, not really. But people from the city picture it that way, so I let them think that.
I like to say I “live to photograph, am forced to work”, so I work full time in Accounting at a large paper mill, reaching my 30 year milestone there this year.
I have had magazine covers and articles, calendars, been featured on websites, and published in the local papers as well as the Washington Post. I have won awards in many contests, including two of my favorites: Scenic Virginia and Virginia Wildlife. I am currently in my second term as president of the Colonial Nature Photography Club with close to 100 members, where I have helped guide many fledgling photographers to improve their skills, both in classes and through my monthly club newsletter.
I got into photography about fifteen years ago and it was my escape from reality. Well, it still is actually. I focus (no pun intended) on nature photography and am in my happy place when I am out in the wild with the birds and critters.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.
