Photography is a medium of formidable contradictions,
it is both incredibly easy and impossibly difficult. Edward Steichen
has traveled the world, and from this
experience, gained a versatile and creative eye. From the cliched "oilwell
in the sunset" to a CEO in an annual report, Wollam is able to see beyond
the cliche and come up with a photo that reflects the subject in an
entirely new light; one that interests the viewer, yet refllects far
more depth and credibility.
"I love the challenge of professional photography. Although we live
in an increasingly complex computerized world, it still takes creativity
to make the commonplace uncommon," says Wollam.
He was born and reared in Oregon, lived in Spain and Japan. Wollam received
a bachelor of fine arts in photography from the Art Center college of
Design in Los Angeles. He moved to New York City in the 70's where he
worked with the legendary photographer, Arnold Newman. He then started
shooting for Fortune, Business Week and Forbes magazines. He is presently
working out of Dallas, and specializes in corporate and magazine photography
with a strong emphasis on executive portraiture and annual reports.
