Woody Walters has become one of the nation’s premier artists.  Walters’ photographs are a celebration of renewal and change.  In his latest portfolio “Reflections of Christ,” Walters has pushed the boundary of photography to new and exciting limits allowing him to give a visual testimony in strikingly complex imagery.  During a career that spans decades, Walters evolved from a commercial photographer and fine art black and white landscapes artist, to one of the newest Christian artists. His client list included Walt Disney World, Blockbuster Video, Ilford Photo,  Mamiya Camera, Calumet, and Burger King.

Through his diverse portfolio subjects, Walters’s work is sought after and appeals to a very wide audience. Walters’ works appear in museums and galleries throughout the world, including Ansel Adams private collection, the Smithsonian, the Tampa Museum of Art, the Yergeau-Musee International d’Art in Canada, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Hoyt Institute of Art, the Pensacola Museum, the Madison Museum of Art, a private collection at the Vatican in Rome, and is featured in many international tours with the United States Embassy.

Walters contributes to many business and industry magazines on a regular basis and is in demand on the lecture circuit.  He teaches across the country offering photographic workshops for beginners to the very advanced and his self published online training “Inside Woody’s World” has been highly regarded by photography lovers
