who we are

Fine art photography

Birchbark Studios

Birchbark Studios evolved as a means for Darcy Dangremond and Andy Shumway to share their passion for fine art photography.

We grew up in the Finger Lakes region of Central New York and have been fortunate to have lived in some of the most beautiful parts of the country.  We've taken advantage of that opportunity by spending time hiking the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the Sierra’s of California and Nevada or exploring New England.  This diversity has helped us become more sensitive to what we see and how we interpret that in our photography.
