La Quinta Arts Festival Artist Spotlight: Fred Mertz

Fred Mertz (Photography) Menlo Park, CA — Booth #913

New Artist

Originally trained as a photojournalist, Fred Mertz turned his attention to fine art photography in 2006.

Fred credits the multitude of scenic vistas from his Menlo Park home as fuel for his passion. While he was initially attracted to big views, he’s grown interested in capturing the details, and the transitory light.

He captures photographs in his travels through California, Colorado, Wyoming, the Southwest, and at Yosemite National Park. One of his collectors from Washington praises, “Ansel would be proud of your Yosemite Valley picture but the others are an absolute tonic for the soul! VERY very beautiful. Thank you!!”
