Beyond his academic achievements Ed has been capturing images for over twenty five years and expanding his reach over the last decade through dedicating himself to learning more about the art of photography including equipment. He has not confined his work to the shores of the United States but instead has traveled around the globe to capture the offerings of the planet. Uniquely he sees beauty in the simple movement of time, and space. From the African Masai Mara to the shores of Zanzibar, to the beautiful coast of the Great Highway in Carmel Valley , to the rainforests of Costa Rica, to the rocky mountains of Colorado to sweltering heat on the bayous of Louisiana to the Almalfi Coast in Italy, to the beaches of Bermuda to the sky scrapers of Hon Kong; from the snow caps of the Peruvian Andes, to Swiss Alps, valleys and lakes to the Polynesian Islands to the American Southwest, to the Alaskan Wilderness, to the desert of Las Vegas, and to the sunsets in Hawaii, Dr. Valeau has sought to bring an international perspective to his images so as to render the beauty of nature and mans addition to its splendor. He believes that the world is full of wonder. As a planet walker, he wants to share it with people through creating images that takes them to different places and times. He sees himself as a street photographer with versatility to create pictures of landscapes, wildlife water, plants, and portraits. He has traveled to every continent except one to capture pictures that evoke feelings in the viewer. With a commitment to the human condition, a percentage of Dr. Valeaus’ earning from selling photography is donated to a charity to where the image was captured.
Be not simply good—be good for something
