Dotti Gramke is a portrait and art photographer based in South Central Nebraska. Her love of photography started at age 12, when Wyoming/Colorado regional photographer Stephen Collector visited her grandfather in Wyoming and photographed him for Law of the Range, a book about old west brand inspectors. Dotti started working with film and a Brownie camera in grade school; then took pictures in college as well. Her love of photography and experience grew as a reporter for two Nebraska newspapers. When her children were born; Dotti’s experience continued to grow. Her current show features an interest in how light is captured and seen in the world around her. Most of the images featured were captured on walks near the artist’s rural home.

“A photographer is a little bit of everything: part weatherman, part scientist, part artist; part IT tech and part designer. It takes All of these elements to create a great photo.”

Gramke’s work has been published in Wyoming Wildlife Magazine; Senior Year Magazine; Pretty Little Poser Model Magazine; and featured on several different social media outlets.
