Known as “Greenville’s Hometown Photographer,” Blaine Owens spends countless hours exploring the beauty of the Upstate and surrounding areas. Using a minimum of electronic editing, his focus is on thoughtful composition that features authentic lighting and showcases the magnificent palette of the region he cherishes.
Blaine is a Greenville native whose pieces adorn the walls of hundreds of homes and offices. Although he photographs many familiar landscapes, his genuine approach is distinctive. His awards include the Fuji Masterpiece Award bestowed by the Fujifilm Corporation for his artistic depiction of the Furman University Lake and the natural elegance of a swan swimming in the morning sunlight. Other photos capture whimsical poses from farm animals and abandoned manmade treasures that are often overlooked—all culminating in an offbeat flair that is easy to recognize and bound to bring joy to those who see it.
You may view Blaine’s work online at www.scenicsouthusa.com or visit his studios/galleries at 10 Central Avenue Studios in Downtown Greenville and The Greer Center for the Arts at 804 Trade Street. He invites you to share in the results of his ongoing outdoor adventures.
