Stanton, Susan

Susan Stanton has spent years traveling and photographing the beauty and rustic charm that is known as the Southern Appalachians. A vast array of images depicting scenes along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pisgah National Forest, Western North Carolina, Eastern Tennessee, and upstate South Carolina can be found in her online pictorial gallery.

Susan shoots her subjects in carefully selected lighting conditions to emphasize their natural textures and colors. Her images have been described by Marshall Gordon of Bold Life Magazine as "a wide variety of beautifully composed, hauntingly original nature scenes saturated with deep, textured colors...exposures so painterly, that many of her clients insist that's exactly what they are."

Susan Stanton's work has appeared on the covers of Blue Ridge Country Magazine, Carolina Arts Magazine, WNC Relocation Guide, Land of Waterfalls Telephone Directory, the Laurel of Asheville and Laurel of Highlands magazines. Her images have also appeared in Nature's Best Photography Magazine, Our State Magazine, Bold Life Magazine, Rapid River Magazine and the Asheville Citizen Times to name a few.

Venues where Susan's work has been on display include the Biltmore Estate, National Parks Conservation Association, Asheville Area Arts Council, Henderson County Arts Council, Black Mountain Center for the Arts, Haywood County Arts Council, Transylvania County Arts Council, Pack Place, and The Cradle of Forestry in Pisgah National Forest.
