Winner of the 2010 Pleasure Island Visitor Guide Contest - Peter Doran of Kure Beach
The Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce proudly announces that the winner of the 2010 Pleasure Island Visitor Guide Contest is Peter Doran of Kure Beach.
Peter studied fine art and graphic design at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Art Degree in 1972. He continued his formal education at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he received his Masters Degree in 1974.
Peter is a photographer whose passion for photographing nature is formed by his love and concern for the Carolina coast. He seeks to capture not only the essence and the inherent beauty of the coast, but to show it in a manner that allows the viewer to see it from a fresh or unique perspective. His unique sense of style and use of light transports the viewer into the scene, standing in the photographer’s shoes, seeing with his eyes what Peter saw before capturing the scene.
Peter and his family live in Kure Beach, North Carolina, and publish and distribute high quality educational consumer products including postcards, photographic playing cards, panoramic posters, note cards, magnets, key chains, drink coasters and limited edition signed prints Peter is very community minded and donates his work to many area foundations and non-profit organizations for fund raising purposes.Peter’s work can been seen via his website at www.PeterDoranPhotography.com.
