Mary Nemeth - Image Quest Photography 


About the Photographer


Born and raised on a farm near South Bend, Indiana, Mary Nemeth was instilled early on with a curiosity and an appreciation of the natural world. The beauty  around her captured Mary's attention and, in the 80s, when she was introduced to the magic of photography, became the focus of her photography.


She studied photography with local photographers, Kazik Pazovski and Mitch Kaufmann, and attended many photo workshops throughout North America and South Africa with leading nature photographers, John Shaw, Larry West, George Lepp, John Neatherton, Freeman Patterson, and David Middleton. She has traveled extensively to such places as Iceland, Equador, Peru, Italy, and South Africa to pursue her photographic interests.


A Purdue graduate, Mary taught  children for thirty years near Cincinnati, Ohio and now devotes  herself full time to photography.  She has been photographing and teaching photography to adults as well as selling her images. Her work has appeared in many local exhibits and has been widely published in books, magazines and calendars.  She displays and sells her work at juried art shows  throughout the Midwest . Mary is available for private photo lessons as well as for specific photo shoots.


The hidden beauty of nature's tiniest flower, the special splendor of the early morning light, the simple shapes found in the dewy grass, the intricate patterns etched in a frosted windowpane, these secret treasures found in our everyday lives are the subjects of Mary's photography. Through her striking compositions and carefully selected subjects, Mary's goal is to capture the incredible beauty of those "intimate landscapes"  that surround us and share it with others. Her artistic interpretation of the natural world provides a kind of spiritual nourishment for her and, hopefully, for the viewer as well. Mary enjoys experimenting with her camera, creating multiple exposures, panning, using filters and the computer to fulfill her unique vision.
