Craig Boudreaux is a New Orleans-based photographer specializing primarily in nature, landscape, travel, and street photography. Craig’s fine art prints, created using a variety of digital and analog cameras and offered exclusively for sale through Galerie Severn, reflect his unique perspective of the world and people around him.
At the age of 15, Craig was introduced to 35mm and medium format film photography and darkroom processing by his uncle, photographer Rudolph Boudreaux. Over several decades, Craig gained considerable experience in many photographic genres, multiple film formats, and traditional and alternative processing and printing methods. Following a brief hiatus from photography in the 1990s, Craig's passion was reignited by the development of professional quality digital cameras and the introduction of the digital darkroom.
Craig is inspired by the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Eugene Atget, Berenice Abbott, Michael Kenna, and Peter Spangenberg, among others. “My goal is not to replicate what these artists have created, but to master the tools, refine my vision, create a body of respectable work and, in doing so, inspire others in a similar manner.”
Craig is a freelance sports photographer for several New Orleans-area high schools and amateur sports organizations. In 2012, two of Craig photographs – Adair and Carousel – were selected from among hundreds of entries in a juried competition and toured the United States as part of the Progressive 2012 Biennial Art Collection.
Born in New Orleans, Craig has lived in the metropolitan area his entire life. A Certified Public Accountant and Attorney-at-Law, Craig resides in Metairie with his wife Suzanne and their two amazing daughters, Adair and Avrill, who are often the subjects of his work.
