Julian Chandler Photography is a collaboration between the husband and wife team of Steven Chandler Price and Ann Julian Roberson. A botanist by training, Steve has published several articles and books on natural history and travel that are illustrated with his own photographs. He is currently Associate Vice President for Technology Development at Oklahoma State University, where he has responsibilities for patent and licensing, contract negotiation, new company formation, and other issues relating to technology transfer. Ann is a French major and lawyer, and has been doing portraits in pencil since her teens. She is presently the attorney for, and is the former president of, The University of Tennessee Research Corporation. There she is responsible for contract negotiation and licensing. She also has her own consulting business for transactional law in the pharmaceutical industry. Finally, she has an antique business called Julian Chandler Antiques. Between them they have six grown sons whose lives make parents heads spin. Even so they manage to indulge their love for travel, and every trip becomes an excuse to shoot dozens if not hundreds of photographs.
They have been taking photographs for many years, though started showing their work at art shows in 2000. Since then they have shown their work at dozens of juried art shows, several galleries, corporate offices, and have won numerous awards. Steve is presently working on a book titled: "Botanica Erotica," a synthesis of science and art, illustrated by some of his most sensual photos.
Their photographs, some of which you see here, are a reflection of their individual interests: Steve likes foreign travel, fields of wildflowers, and eye-popping color, while Ann opts for Paris in the spring, elegant architecture, and cool black-and-white.
Come view their simple compositions, smooth lines, and vivid celebrations of man and nature.
