Roger Spencer Photography


Bio Header

Roger I am a native West Virginian, and my love of nature and the outdoors, the natural beauty of West Virginia, and the inspiration provided by other photographers (most prominently, Arnout Hyde, Jr.'s images in Wonderful West Virginia magazine), combined to produce my desire to photograph the landscape.  Mr. Hyde also played a significant role in the advancement of my photography career by providing advice, mentoring, and the opportunity to have my photographs published in Wonderful West Virginia during the time he served as Editor.

I have been photographing the West Virginia landscape for about 30 years.  As a freelance landscape and nature photographer, my images have been published in a variety of venues, including magazines, books, calendars, brochures, advertising materials, web sites, gift items, etc.   My images have appeared regularly in Wonderful West Virginia magazine since 1993, with approximately 200 images published, including 13 covers.  In addition, my framed prints have been purchased by many individuals and businesses to decorate their homes and offices.

In 2013, I was honored to have one of my images, a sunrise along the Highland Scenic Highway, selected by the United States Postal Service to be appear on the West Virginia Statehood Commemorative Stamp issued to celebrate West Virginia's sesquicentennial (150th anniversary).

I live in Middlebourne, WV, with my wife, Rhonda.
