About the Book
Photography of beautiful roses from the rosebeds of the author. No bloom, or "smile" as the author calls them, is ever cut from its bush. Being able to take more shots of each beautiful "smile" as it opens is part of the love affair the author has with his roses. All lighting is pure and natural as God provides. Stan only provides a black or white material background to enhance the smiling beautiful blooms upon his rosebushes. True art each photo is! Enjoyment awaits!
I am a hobbyist photographer and love to take shots of the roses and flowers my wife and I grow. Also like to go on photo shoots to some other gardens and to the mountains. The books I have published here of photos of my roses and other flowers are some of my award winning and first place winning shots. The book on growing roses I have published here is all from personal experience of growing and tending rosebushes for over 40 years. Some of my accomplishments in Photography are: I have won many first place ribbons in photography shows and contests over the years with my photography of roses and flowers. My photography work has won Best Overall Photo of Show several times now. My Photography work won the District Photography Trophy twice now from the Rocky Mountain District of the American Rose Society District Shows. A special award recognizing photographic excellence. I have won awards from the American Rose Society Photo Contest as well.
