About Faulkner Photographic Art
WHO is Faulkner Photographic Art?
Faulkner Photographic Art (formerly "Happy Valley Images") is owned and operated by Marty Faulkner, a professional photographer and digital artist residing in both California and Arizona.
Our goal is to "create an emotional connection" between our fine art images and you, the viewer.
We begin by, obviously, taking a photograph. Then, we transform the image into “photographic art” in our digital darkroom.
About our name change: we are changing our name to "Faulkner Photographic Art" in order to help potential buyers understand where they are heading when they click a link to come to our web site. This type of change takes time. You may continue to see "Happy Valley Images" for a while as we make the switch. Please know that you are dealing with the same person, Marty Faulkner, regardless of the name you see. Thanks for understanding.
