Driven by a lasting love and admiration for our natural world, Niel Hayes has been photographing captivating images of landscapes, architecture, and nature for over 18 years. His fine art photography portfolio captures the simplest, most common subjects and transforms them into elegant, breathtaking images.
Niel is a Rocky Mountain native who grew up just outside of Denver in the city of Littleton. After graduating with his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University, Niel moved to the beautiful Northwest to pursue his Masters in Mechanical Engineering at WSU Vancouver. Currently Niel and his wife, Dani, live in Atlanta Georgia, where Niel is pursuing his Engineering career. Niel describes his passion for photography as “an excellent creative and technical outlet; combining artistic interpretation and tools that operate under the laws of physics.” Niel’s personal mission is to help people experience the world through his photography and gain a greater respect for our sometimes unnoticed and seemingly common surroundings.
Dani Hayes is a firm believer in the importance of taking ownership for your life and striving to design the world around you. At an early age she learned that life doesn't always go as planned, but if you prepare diligently, work smart, and equip yourself with an optimistic attitude you can overcome anything life has to throw out you.
Dani was raised in the Pacific Northwest. Growing up she was actively involved in sports and would often be found with a ball in her hand. When she wasn't on a sports field, she was often found spending time with family or planning her next entrepreneurial endeavor. At the age of 16 Dani launched her very first company, and has been hooked ever since.
Dani met Niel while he was pursuing his Masters degree at WSU Vancouver. Together they are the perfect team and constantly strive to bring out the best of each other.
Dani's personal mission is to inspire others to chase their dreams and expect greatness out of themselves. "We are what we habitually do!"
All fine-art photography prints are printed on Kodak Professional Endura Premier Metallic papers; which features a glossy finish and metallic appearance that creates images with exceptional visual interest and depth.. Prints are sold individually and are not matted or framed.
Fine Art Canvas Wraps are printed directly onto museum-quality canvas material using high-quality archival inks. The print is then wrapped around a 1-1/2" artist's stretcher frame, and finished with a paper backing, sawtooth hanger, and bumpers to protect your wall.
Beautifully Finished Float Mount Prints – No Frame Needed! First we make a print on Metallic Paper. We then over-laminate the image with a soft Satin Laminate, and then wrap the print it on Gatorboard. For a striking effect, we apply a spacer to the back of the ThinWrap, which allows the image to be hung and appear to float from the wall.
