Cynthia Walpole and Charles Fritsch
Focus Frog presents award winning photography-based fine art created by Chuck Fritsch and Cindy Walpole. Our detailed art features hummingbirds in glorious full color.
Our current project involves photographing the hummingbirds of Costa Rica. The pursuit of images of these fast flying little jewels is a logistical and technical puzzle that has taken them from mangroves to the highest mountains of this small Central American country where Cindy grew up and which much of her family calls home. We carry an SUV full of equipment including multiple strobe lights and over 100 batteries. This allows them to produce images which accurately represent the birds' iridescent colors in a way that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Other supporting elements (such as flowers) are added later to complement the natural beauty of the tiny subjects.
Our art has won numerous awards, including best in show at the San Diego Museum of Natural History's annual juried competition and first place at PDN (Photo District News) magazine Great Outdoors competition.
These images are available, as limited edition fine art prints, in sizes that are 15 inches minimum on the shortest side . Smaller versions of these works are also available in numbered, open editions. All images are hand signed and printed by the artists.
The value of these art prints is as listed individually in this gallery. As an additional service, your image can be mounted on an archival black mat. A simple black metal frame with a uv protecting acrylic glazing can also be added. All images are produced using museum quality archival materials and are unconditionally guaranteed for 1 year.
