My family surname, Beausoleil, means Beautiful Sun in English. I am a “beautiful sun” photographer. It’s all about the light – at sunrise or dark of night.

In English, my last name (Beausoleil) means Beautiful Sun. I’ve always lived up to my name, up early with the sun, and almost always with a camera in hand. I’ve been a landscape and night photographer for over 15 years, and just recently started displaying my work on my website – BeautifulSunPhotography.com.
As the saying goes, a picture might be worth a thousand words, but for me, there’s always a backstory. That what this blog is about. To tell the story behind my photography.

It was worth the walk in the cold rain to photograph the beautiful azaleas in a park in southern Roanoke County in Virginia!
Great Lakes Lighthouses
If you ever can visit a Great Lakes lighthouse, do not pass it up. There are so many unique and beautiful lighthouses and many of them offer tours during the summer season.
Timing the Sunrise
There is a major difference in timing when photographing a sunrise on the Great Lakes vs the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Winter Night at the Milwaukee Art Museum
It is always a treat to find the wings open on the Milwaukee Art Museum. Especially on a cold December night under a full moon.
Even though I’d never been there, I felt a sense of familiarity when looking out over the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur. I felt like I was finally at home.
Being Prepared In Case of Emergency
An accident while out photographing nature can happen to anyone. Here’s what I learned after I had a hard fall recently and what I did to help prevent further mishaps.
