Boston Neary

Before Boston Neary moved to Vermont in 2011, all she knew about birds was trying to get birdies on the golf course. Her life changed when she moved to a house on Shelburne Bay in Shelburne. Every day she started seeing scores of different birds—including eagles, osprey and snowy owls. And each morning and evening during the summer she was wowed by incredible sunrises and sunsets.  She knew that none of her friends from around the country would believe Vermont’s incredible beauty. She started ‘winging it’ at first by trying to take pictures of fast-moving birds with an iPhone—and quickly found that was impossible. Her first camera was a souped-up point and shoot that she soon found could shoot distance shots, but didn’t have the ability to shoot many photos quickly.

The quest to find the right camera continued over the next couple of years. She became best friends with the local camera store as she continually upgraded to newer and different levels of DSLR’s (with bigger and bigger lenses). She has settled on two Nikons, and a mirrorless Olympus and--plenty of lenses including the ‘big mama’ 200-500mm to catch the long-distance shots. Where golf was once her driving passion, nature photography has taken over Boston’s life. Being outdoors and capturing these moments brings her incredible joy – and what makes her incredibly happy is the ability to share it via social media – Boston Neary Nature Photography on Facebook – and at different public showings.  She truly believes that Vermont has brought out the artist in her. She has a long bucket list of places to visit: Costa Rica, Galapagos and Iceland to name a few – but she also knows she is incredibly blessed to be able to walk out her front door to catch Vermont’s incredible beauty.

Her photography has been featured on/in: WCAX-TV; Vermont Magazine; Burlington Free Press;; Lake Champlain Committee; Lake Champlain Maritime Museum; Dragonheart Vermont and Best of Central Vermont Magazine.  She is currently the publisher of South Burlington and Shelburne Living magazine.

The Lake Champlain region is my unparalleled muse; the beauty of the lake, skies, mountains, valley and the people enjoying its splendor. I don't have to travel the world to find world-class beauty; it is here, in my own back yard. My ability to find the area's essence is evolving and it is exhilarating to me. I love to capture vistas with just the right light accenting a center of interest, the effects of natural elements and motion, and when I find a wide tonal range, the elegant impression of black and white. I have been a serious amateur photographer for over thirty years, gracing walls with images that have staying power.  

My objective is to use natural light in capturing images, by being in the right place at the right time with the right equipment, evoking a magical light and an interesting confluence of elements. My goal is to offer carefully selected prints to an audience that is also captivated by the beauty of the region and would like to enhance their home or office with a high quality print that reminds them of the exquisiteness just outside our doorsteps.
