unnamedAbout Emilio

Emilio Pasquale does not exist. He is a figment of an overactive imagination, a young man trapped in an old man’s body! A product of the sixties, he survived the Summer Of Love in San Francisco and the business world of New York City before divorce and ill parents led him to Las Vegas, where he now resides and contemplates retirement.

He is happily remarried to Melinda, commonly called Lynn (or babe, or dear, or milady- which she prefers). They have a large extended family with 10 children- all thankfully grown, though two still reside with them. Educated in the arts, he has only recently returned to his first love- photography. He shoots mostly landscapes in and around the southwest United States with occasional forays to parts further east and west.

The name Emilio Pasquale is derived from his grandfather Emilio, and his uncle Pasquale. They, and his grandmother Maria, landed at Ellis Island around 1917. His father was born in Brooklyn, as was the rest of the clan.

The family originated in Fontanarosa, a small town about 1 hour east of Naples, Italy. They settled in New York state. More specifically Brooklyn. As the children grew, married, and had children of their own, they settled in different parts of the country. Though he was born in Brooklyn, Emilio grew up in Southern California and now resides in the southwest.  He first picked up a camera to document his passion for the land and the effects of the weather, the way the sun can bleach the color from the earth, when he was only 17. 

Thank you. I hope you enjoy.

  2. Hi. I came across your blog through the WordPress Photo Challenge. I too play a little with my photos using LR, and I have just started looking at a nice piece of software called Aurora HDR. I love your photo of the old school for the Future challenge. I’ve started following you now as well. All the best to you from Brisbane, Australia.

    1. Thanks, Kim. You might notice that I started following you, too. I like what I saw of your work. I haven’t tried Aurora only because I use Lightroom, On1, Topaz, and now Nik! My favorite keeps changing. Hope you enjoy your results and share them with the rest of us!

  3. Folks should just enjoy where they are and not worry about how you got them there. Simply beautiful images. I was into photography as a high school kid and only ever had access to actual camera’s and film and a darkroom then (late 80’s-early 90’s). I had to choose some sort of creative outlet at some point and couldn’t afford to do it all so I chose music which is an expensive endeavor in it’s own right. Digital is fine by me at this point, I’d rather see that than nothing! I shoot from the hip with my iphone since I’m usually on the go. I then do some manipulation with various ios apps for really good and sometimes surprising effect. I find that working this way has even reinvigorated my love for photography in general and I plan to pursue it more seriously in the future, for now iphoneography scratches that itch. Good work here man! I have you in my feed now!
    Cheers from SF!
    I have a blog devoted to my photoworks as well:

    1. Thank you. I really appreciate that you took the time to comment here. I have to say you’re darn lucky to live in San Francisco- one of my favorite cities. I will be heading on over to both your websites to check them out!

  4. Your work has a wonderful painterly quality that finds strength in the roots of photography. Photo=light; Graph=written or drawn. So glad to have found your blog!

    1. Thanks for your comment and your question. Light room does offer HDR but I rarely use it. I take a shot slightly under exposed, then open up the shadows and bring down the highlights which gives that effect

  7. Hi Emilio
    I just love the photo you have on your blog of the old Dodge truck and the old car in the field in Kanosh Utah.
    I would like to get a large print made of that photo for my home office. My family is from Fillmore and
    Kanosh Utah. Is it possible to maybe purchase this photo in a very high resolution? I wanted to make a very large
    print on canvas.

    1. Thank you, Chad. I do have this print for sale if you go to https://pixels.com/products/bonnie-and-clyde-emilio-pasquale-framed-print.html you can select the size as well as what format; paper, canvas, metal. I should warn you, though, that I have never been quite satisfied with the color in this and am working on a revised version as we speak. Also, we went back this past Halloween and discovered the area is actually Meadow UT, not Kanosh. I wonder if that would make a difference to you. Also, we took a few additional shots at night and those will all be up on my site within the week. Thank you for your interest.

      1. Sound Great! I will wait to see the reversion on the Bonnie and Clyde photo. I love it but if you can make it better I would love to see it.
        I also would love to see the new photos of that area. Meadow is in the same area and my dads family had a farm in Flowell which is near
        Meadow so its all good! I think I will go with the canvas format …for my office I think it will look the best. That is on a wood frame that it is wrapped around correct? Most likley the 48×25 …Is there different finishes on the canvas format? what would you recomend? Thanks again Love your photos…That old dodge photo speaks to me!

        1. I haven’t ordered a canvas for myself ( I prefer the metal) but the site states “Your image gets printed onto one of our premium canvases and then stretched on a wooden frame of 1.5″ x 1.5″ stretcher bars (gallery wrap) or 5/8″ x 5/8” stretcher bars (museum wrap). Your canvas print will be delivered to you “ready to hang” with pre-attached hanging wire, mounting hooks, and nails.” The only finishes are matte or glossy. I can email you when the new versions are online, if you wish. Or I can contact you through here.

          1. Thanks for the info I see that info on the site now…. I think the metal my be the best for what I am looking to do. I think I know what you mean
            on the Bonnie and Clyde….I put the image up on my big screen TV with a HDMI cable and it took on a little differnt hue/ Saturation look and it really looked good. But I do like the way it is also…maybe when you are done working on it I could choose between the two? Yes you can contact me direct on my e mail if you wish. I think you have it. Looking forward
            to seeing the new photos thanks again. Chad

                1. Hey, Chad. I was just wondering if you had any problems ordering. I haven’t received any notification of a sale and, if you didn’t order, no problem. I just need to know if there’s a problem with Fine Art america. Thanks.
