Alan Lance's photographs celebrate the natural world, particularly the Maryland countryside.  He works almost exclusively with a Nikon D60 and Nikon lenses.  His photography began in the early 1970s with a Minolta SLR 101, capturing images of musicians performing live at indoor and outdoor concerts and has evolved to focus primary on the wildlife and natural wonders of Maryland’s diverse environments.
