TO PLACE AN ORDER: Please contact me via email JohnMoranPhoto@gmail.com or telephone (352.373.9718) for further information or to place an order payable by Visa/Mastercard or personal check. I prefer communication by email, which gives us both a written record of the conversation. Please note that I am a staff of one, and my travel schedule may preclude an immediate response to your query. Orders may take from one day to several weeks to fill.

I print my photos on premium Hahnemuhle European fine art paper using Epson Ultrachrome archival pigment inks. My framing presentation features a "floating mat" look. Unless specified otherwise, I choose matboard colors that complement the colors of the selected photograph. On photos that are matted to 24x32" or larger, I use premium suede mats. I carefully hand-tear each photo to leave an exposed white-bordered deckled edge suspended within the surrounding matboard window. It's a labor-intensive process that yields a striking artistic look. I use Nielsen brand frames from their Florentine Silver "Brushed Steel" collection (Style 83 and 93, Finish 150). For the extra large 43x59" frames, I use Nielsen Damascan Steel, style 45E-861.

My photos make memorable awards and gifts with the inclusion of a personalized, engraved metal plate that I attach to the matboard before assembling the frame. Please ask for details.

My Florida photo collection is also available at Sweetwater Picture Framing (www.SweetwaterPictureFraming.com) in downtown Gainesville next to the Hippodrome Theatre. Owner Dan Randall offers a wide range of custom framing options, including both wood and metal frames. Dan uses a traditional overlay mat style, a classic look that differs from my deckled-edge "floating mat" look. Sweetwater Picture Framing is the place to see my entire collection of framed Florida photography, and is also the place to have your University of Florida diploma framed with my campus or alligator photos. The shop is located in the Sun Center at 101 SE 2nd Pl., Suite 109, Gainesville, FL 32601. Hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-5:30, Saturday 10:30-2 and by appointment. I suggest you call ahead at 352.373.5745 to confirm the shop is open, as Dan may be doing installations away from the shop.


Journal of Light: The Visual Diary of a Florida Nature Photographer

hardcover, 128 pages. 77 color photographs, 36 essays.
published by University Press of Florida
For a preview of the book, click here.

About the book, one critic writes,"...a reminder of Florida's enormous capacity for natural majesty; it's a remarkable souvenir of the mystique of a rare place... Moran's essays resonate with an honesty and compassion that fully inform the art behind the photographic technique. His words express a sensibility that is as authentic as it is admirable... [A] subjective ode of wonder and affection and art."

This remarkable collection of images and essays caps Moran's 20-year odyssey to discover the soul of one of the most photographed states in the country. The book is a mid-career retrospective featuring Moran's well-known photographs of the alligators, beaches, birds, blackwater rivers, freshwater springs, palms, live oaks, turtles, flowers and night-time landscapes that make Florida the amazing place we call home.

Signed and personally inscribed copies of Journal of Light can be ordered directly from John Moran. The cost of the book is $34.95. With tax and shipping, the total is $42.26.

Books shipped out of state are tax exempt. The order total is $39.90.

In seven visits over three years, I held the keys to the kingdom while crawling and climbing all over one of America's great botanical treasures. Historic Bok Sanctuary in Central Florida is a place of deep spiritual refuge, crowned by a magnificent 200-foot tall Gothic Revival carillon tower. The photos are artfully interweaved with a beautiful poem by Bill Maxwell, columnist for the St. Petersburg Times.
