Who are these people?

(Photograph by Jose Vassallo. No Florida scrub jays were harmed in the making of this photograph)
Nancy and Bruce (and friends)

Nancy was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and has been taking pictures most of her life. During her forty years as a school teacher, she has used the summers to lead scout groups on camping trips through state and national parks to the far corners of this great country. She has seen every state, and has driven from Miami to Alaska four times. In recent years, she has expanded her horizons on trips with her husband, Bruce, to all seven continents. During her travels, her passion continues to be nature and wildlife photography. Other interests include sailing, canoeing, diving, hiking, bicycle riding, and camping. Since she retired from teaching in 2009, she has devoted her energy to bringing her passion to the public by connecting people with nature through her photographs.

Bee Happy Graphics was created in 2007 to produce, display, and sell the photography of Nancy Moreland. We can sell our images in digital form or print our artwork in several sizes and media. We cut our own mats, cut glass, and build frames, so that we can sell our work either framed or unframed. We can even print our images on canvas with a gallery wrap. You can check out our products here.

Alternately, we can perform any of these services on the images of our clients.

Our Photographic Philosophy

This is fine art photography, not photojournalism. Yet we don’t believe we can improve on God’s work. It is our intent to bring the glory of God’s imagination to you without material embellishment. In post-processing, we do correct for the inadequacies of our equipment. We may also simplify the event, possibly by invoking other dimensions, or de-emphasize non-essential components (like our background), but the result will still accurately represent the event as we saw it. In our photography, we do require a skill set that may not be emphasized by more conventional artists, like research and planning, patience, and careful observation. If, as an example of God’s imagination, we want to show you as concisely as possible the breadth of His color spectrum (or gamut) as applied to birds, we cannot obviously invent a bird or alter its appearance (although that is perfectly within our post-processing capabilities). We must find the bird and wait patiently under less-than-ideal conditions for a display that best exemplifies His work. At the same time, we conform to (or tactically break) the same rules of composition as other artists.

Our Vision

To connect people with nature.
To protect threatened and endangered species.
To inspire citizens to safeguard wildlife and the natural world.
To create a better world for both people and wildlife.

Our Workflow

Nancy and her husband, Bruce, do all of their own work. After Nancy captures an image, Bruce will do the post-processing and printing of the pictures using an Epson Stylus Pro 9900 pigment-based inkjet printer on a variety of fine art and photo papers or canvasDetails, and cutting of mats and glass. Together they will do the picture framing or stretching of canvas. They display their work at art shows and exhibitions around Florida.

Our Equipment

The following lists are partial and are subject to change without notice.


Although Nancy started with Nikon SLR equipment, she changed over to Canon when she entered the digital age in 2005. (For the story on that change, see our FAQ.)
