Passionate about getting people to connect with nature, Elmore DeMott is a photographer with award winning work in private and corporate art collections, galleries, and museums. Flowers and mighty pine forests — her signature subjects — are featured in publications, presentations, and arts collaborations, and her Camera Journey in pursuit of images that offer a unique perspective takes Elmore throughout her home state of Alabama and beyond, including Chautauqua Institution in New York, where she enjoys speaking about her work and teaching photography.
Elmore earned her BA in Math and Fine Art from Vanderbilt University and began her career in banking, before working in arts administration and finally photography in order to put her own creative talents to work. An avid arts supporter — and describing the arts as being fundamental to all lives — Elmore was the founding president of ClefWorks, a non-profit created to promote the education and enjoyment of chamber music through innovative programming, and the internationally acclaimed JACK Quartet claims Elmore as a founding member of their board of directors.
In addition to compelling images, Elmore considers her finest creations to be her two daughters and the life she’s built with her husband, Miles DeMott, a writer with whom she collaborates from time to time.
