Michele Sons

Michele Sons is an emerging fine art landscape and portrait photographer originally from England and currently based in southwest Virginia. Her background in geography and environmental science, her taste for adventure, and her highly diverse and extensive travel experience uniquely position her to connect with landscapes across the world. Michele’s current work is based on a soft, subtle, pared-down aesthetic, which is a fresh contrast to the bold, overly-saturated scenes so prevalent in the media today. Fog, mist, and soft light feature heavily in her images. The Feminine Landscape is her popular series that expressively depicts women experiencing dramatic landscapes in locations from the Blue Ridge mountains to Death Valley, Grand Canyon, and beyond. The most enduring influence for her work is the poetry of William Butler Yeats. She has contributed writing and imagery to the highly regarded website Luminous-Landscape.com and also to the international art lens brand Lensbaby. In early 2015, Michele travelled to Antarctica on a dedicated photographic expedition with The Luminous Landscape and Antarctica XXI. Her work has been featured in numerous local and regional publications, including Blue Ridge Country magazine, The Roanoke Times, Artemis Journal and Bella Magazine, as well as highly regarded websites including OutdoorPhotographer.com and NaturePhotoGuides.com. Michele’s work hangs in corporate offices in Roanoke, Virginia, and in numerous private collections from Cape Elizabeth, Maine to Madison, Alabama.
