Hello and welcome to the gallery of Walnut Hill Photography!

I am Jan Ivie. I live in the suburbs of Washington, DC, in Southern Maryland. I love to share the beautiful area and historic sites around me with my photographs!

After a career in media production and advertising, I changed my focus to art. These days I teach Art History at our local junior college and try to get out to take photographs as much as possible.

I have a strong element of detail in my photographs. I try to look for things that most people might overlook – - – a bannister or roof-line in architecture, an almost-hidden shape in a sculpture, a water drop in the petals of a flower, or the iridescent feathers of a hummingbird – - – I enjoy finding the beautiful details and sharing them in my photographs.

I am passionate about art. I try to communicate that to my students. I am passionate about nature and my little corner of the world. I try to communicate that in my photographs!

Thanks for stopping by Walnut Hill!
