Donald Schlising

Photographer / Author

Inspired by Ansel Adams, I have a passion to capture black and white nature, urban and landscape imagery. I seek unique shots that are bold and high in contrast, normally taken on overcast days or focused on subjects bathed in a splash of light. Black and white imagery conveys a sense of depth and emotion that I’m unable to experience with color, and my hope is that when you view my photography you feel the same sense of awe I experienced when I took the pictures.

I sell a small portion of my work on this website and also engage in black and white commission photography primarily in the US but also globally. It's important to me that any commission request matches my artistic style and in return delivers the exact image(s) you were hoping for. 

I'm often disappointed with the quality of images posted on websites when compared to their print forms.  Some websites compress images causing artifacts, or they force the use of an image format that degrades a picture's overall quality.  Also, the device you're using to view the photography can play a huge factor in how the brightness and contrast of an image is displayed. Because of that, I'm happy to provide samples of my work in print form to anyone with a serious commission request. 

In addition to my passion for photography, I'm also a published science fiction author.  Tenth Page published my first science fiction novel, MXX: Agent Soldier, and I’m currently writing the second novel in the series, MXX: Two Promises. I also have a number of published short stories scattered throughout the deep expanse of the Internet, and a few samples of my writing on this website.

On a more personal note, I’m forever grateful of the service, dedication, and patriotism of the men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. Their bravery and service to our country, and its people, provides me the freedom and opportunity to do what I do. Because of that, I donate half of all of the profits made from my photography and books sales to Puppies Behind Bars and Homes for our Troops.

I would like to thank everyone who makes a purchase, views, or posts on this website, or makes donations to the same or similar charitable causes.
