Welcome to Jennifer Peters Photography
My name is Jennifer Peters and I am an abstract nature photographer. I specialize in wall art, abstract nature photography, macro photography and close ups.
A Global Photographer
I moved to the United States from Holland to pursue higher education. I have a Master of Arts degree in French History of Art from CSU Dominguez Hills, CA. As a global photographer, I capture intriguing close up images of nature. I have displayed my paintings in exhibitions worldwide. Two of my images were finalists in International Pollux Awards in Berlin and the Charles Dodson Black and White International Photo Contest.
As a nature photographer I focus on images behind the scenery, on what life is made of. My work involves bringing the details to the forefront in photographs, that eyes would normally miss.

The earliest stories were written on cave walls, drawn by humans. The animals drawn by early man were their “photographs” of what they experienced out in the wild. This is where the mix of art and nature stood the test of time deep inside earthen homes. I wonder what these early artists would have shown us if they had a camera to document their experiences.
Now, with modern photography, capturing the world we see is simple. Observing and selecting what we choose to document is the challenge. Given that each person brings their unique life experience and perspective to what they see thrills me. Each photograph I present means something unique to each observer.
This may seem obvious, but it’s not. I see the largest in the smallest, the furthest in the nearest and the nothingness and everything in my subjects which are then expressed through my images.
I recently have chosen to display my images on canvas as a photographic medium. The textured surface brings out the very detailed version of what I see when shooting. While lying in the grass observing a flower or shape of a blade of grass, I try to bring that scene for others to see. Let me show you what’s hidden in there. How big or small is this subject? I can see things that the naked eye cannot. I can capture in that instance a color or light source that will be gone in the next blink of an eye.
I become my camera and the images reflect my view and deep love of nature. My greatest wish is for these images to open a world that people overlook. I explore the intricate nuances of natural forms by allowing the camera’s lens to awaken our tastes for wanting to see the inner beauty in detail.
Like the ancient art on the walls of the caves, I hope to bring to the forefront nature’s hues of light, its crevices, its textures smooth and rough, the delicate strands and the intricacies of its inner exuberance as witnesses to their overlooked beauty. I believe that within a dewdrop the oceans reside.
