I am Adam Shurte, a disabled photographer and visual artist out of the Richmond VA area. This is where I house my portfolios as well as a selection of my work in galleries.
As such, I do not work professionally, though I am working towards education, training, and re-entering the workforce should my health allow it in the future. Likewise, I do not currently sell prints or any merchandise, and I am not available for any commercial work or works. I am not available as a volunteer for any charities or events, for that matter.
Some or all of that may change in the future. It really depends on whether I make a partial or full recovery, or not. Time will tell.
Art is therapy to me, and I've done and needed to do a lot of it over the years. As of now I'm probably best with a camera, but I did start creating fractal abstracts with rendering software in 2022, and I've been doing the same with alcohol ink. I also intend to learn more traditional media- drawing and watercolor painting- and digital painting eventually. Anything I become skilled enough (in my opinion) to share, will likely find itself in a gallery here or at a planned more permanent archive site I intend to set up sometime this year.
As far as what is currently viewable on the site: currently my old photography portfolios are available (though they are in need of updating), as are several photomanipulation galleries. I have uploaded a sampling of my non-portfolio traditional photography into three galleries (color forest and floral, as well as monochrome street photography). A selection of my abstract art- a large number of fractals, less of digital paintings and alcohol ink work, is also currently available for viewing.

Feel free to look around and enjoy the site. If you'd like to contact me I am reachable via email using the contact form.
