About the Artist
Peter Giove is a photographer, author and Native American Hoop Dancer. He began his journey in 1996 when he took his first truly artistic photo. He describes his photography as “landscapes with the occasional human subject.” The explosive growth of user-generated art and online resources has helped him to hone his craft. He works with a wide range of subjects, from professional models to landscape calendars for non-profit organizations. Currently, he operates under Dragonfly Digital Studios (which is named after his late daughter Ceilidh “Little Dragonfly” Giove).
