The Brown State: As Seen Through the Lens of a Native Nevadan

Dennis will lead the participants from the dreary 4 lane blacktop ,that so  many view as Nevada,  into the world that those of us that “know” is the real Nevada. The Nevada that so few get to see. Through his lens and stories we will discover “My Own Nevada”….

The real Nevada that is the most unique state in the Union. From “Little Finland” on the shores of Lake Mead to the High Rock Wilderness on the Oregon Border; from Great Basin National Park on the ancient shores of the Great Salt Lake to the crystal clear water of Lake Tahoe. Dennis will transport the participants off of Interstate 80 or I-15 onto the dirt roads we call home.

Symposium Session Details

Symposium Speaker

Dennis Doyle is a landscape photographer based in Northern Nevada. His passion for the outdoors has taken him all over the West exploring National and State parks, the Pacific coastline, deserts, mountain peaks and all the spaces in between.

A self-taught photographer, Dennis has refined his art over the last twenty years and specializes in capturing the mood of a sunset, the serenity of a desert playa, the story of the tree and the power, movement and beauty of water. His style is simple, bold and moving. Every image tells a story.

As a professional, Dennis’ desire is to bring to each viewer a more revealing inner beauty and appreciation of nature than they had previously. Having hiked deep into places where few have traveled, or are even aware exist, his talent brings out the “extra” ordinary and “unique” glory in natural scenes. His intent is to stir the deep beauty in this world with his viewers – and deliver them his vision and awe.

In the last several months, Dennis has mixed another passion with photography: writing. In his first publication, “Elements,” Dennis accompanies descriptions of the moment he captured. In his second book, “Life, Interrupted,” Dennis explores a more artistic interpretation of images and writes a story of what might have happened in rural Nevada during the hey day of the remnants now scattered throughout the desert.
