PeterPeter D. Gassner D.M.D. practiced cosmetic dentistry in Connecticut for over 35 years. Peter became interested in photography as an adjunct to dentistry for patient education, and communication. Dr. Gassner is an avid golfer and began traveling and photographing golf courses. Some of his golf course photographs have been published in national golf magazines. After a trip to the southwest Dr. Gassner fell in love with the natural beauty of the Southwest and moved to Sedona in 2005.

Peter has won several photographic awards, including honorable mention in the National Parks Association 2007 Contest which had over 7000 contestants. Peter’s photography is focused on capturing the strong, contrasting relationships between shapes and colors. He uniquely capture’s the southwest’s unending source of images.

Peter states “when I have a visual experience that excites me I want to capture it and try to convey that emotion to others. Digital photography has allowed me to control the complete photographic process, from capturing an image on my camera to editing on a computer and finally printing the final image. I feel that I must personally perform all these processes in order to best convey that emotion.”
