Sandy Flint

Sandy Flint has been creating images of the world around us for about sixty years.  Beginning as a child with a Kodak Brownie and a Sears darkroom kit.  In the 1960s while scuba diving he had a desire to share the beauty of the deep with his friends and family.   Since there was no automatic underwater camera equipment success required a return to the basics.   The lessons learned in creating those early underwater images formed the foundation for his excellent technical ability demonstrated in his work today.  It is also underwater where he developed his love of, and respect for, the wildlife of the world. 

Sandy has been the recipient of many awards and has been published in several magazines including Popular Photography, Audubon, and most recently Audubon Online. In the spring of 2011 he was appointed archival photographer for the Philadelphia Festival of the Arts where, along with other productions, he photographed the Pennsylvania Ballet and the Philadelphia Orchestra performing  Stravinsky's Pulcinella.  Each summer he spends several days on  Eastern Egg Rock, off the Maine coast, photographing Atlantic Puffins for the National Audubon Society’s Project Puffin.  In 2012 he spent several weeks in remote British Columbia photographing wildlife, in particular Grizzly bears, resulting in many spectacular images of those beautiful creatures. 

Sandy believes in having control of the photographic process from the time the shutter is released to the final print, and  therefore does all his own processing and printing using the finest 200-year archival paper and inks.

Currently, Sandy’s images can be viewed at the Saltwater Artists Gallery in New Harbor, Maine; Island Gallery in El Largo, Texas, and Flatiron Gallery in Portland, Maine. He has recently shown works at The Lamarche Gallery at Bowdoin College in Maine, the River Arts Gallery in Damariscotta, Maine, and was the feature artist at Graceful Arts Gallery, Oklahoma during the summer of 2012.
