Wildscapes uplifts and transforms clinical and business environments
Wildscapes will design and install wall murals, mosaics (ceilings & walls), photographic montages and other photographic presentations for corporate and private buildings.
Custom-produced nature photography installed on ceilings and in walls add warmth and positive ambiance to office, restaurant, hospital, and other business or professional settings. Fine art photography creates an environment that appeals to clients, employees, and visitors. Your facility will look inviting and calm!
Nature imagery in particular is the key to a new model for workplace design. Images of nature reduce mental fatigue, and promote well-being.
In the case of hospitals, nature photography has been proven beneficial to patients. Viewing nature imagery reduces patient stress, lowers systolic blood pressure and pulse, redirects negative thought, and decreases restlessness during treatment. Images are installed in ceilings above the patient treatment area as virtual skylights and in walls as simulated windows.
Patients often ask “Why don’t you have art on the ceiling so that when I’m laying here I have something to look at other than ceiling tiles?” Good question!
Wildscapes’ extensive library includes thousands of healing, calming, and inspirational images featuring subjects and locations in Mississippi and around the world.
Local Environment & Hunting Land
Wildscapes can shoot a custom body of work in a local environment and on hunting land, creating images that are recognizable and comforting. The photographs will include nature and a variety of wildlife shots. You will own the copyright to the photographs if you like. (Commissioned Photography Service)

A relaxed patient is more receptive and responsive to treatment.
Installed in medical or treatment settings, nature photography reduces patient stress and anxiety.
Images can serve as focal points, and help reduce the need for repeat treatments.
A friendly, positive environment serves as a marketing tool and gives your business a competitive edge.
Peaceful working environments increase employee satisfaction and reduce employee turnover.
Custom Art, Created to your Specifications
Wildscapes will design and install wall murals, mosaics, photographic montages and other photographic presentations for corporate and private buildings. Backlit panels of translucent plastic are called light lenses. Standard sizes are either 2×2-feet or 2×4-feet. They can be grouped in a grid like a mosaic to create large images and are very easy to install. They are most often used on ceilings, but can also be used in walls. The fact that the light is transmitted through the light lens creates an effect that is closer to stained glass than looking at conventional art where the light is reflected.
Every Wildscapes print is an original, custom-produced in the size and shape you request, and signed by professional photographers Mark Melvin or Stephen Kirkpatrick. Prints are not mass-produced, computer enhanced, or retouched; every piece is an authentic, original work of art.
Wildscapes will work with you to develop a custom photo art package, including optional matting and framing, based around your color scheme, a particular subject matter, or specific geographic location. We can create a fine art photo package that is calming or motivating, familiar or exotic. Our large selection of images allows you to create a collection that will appeal to a large audience.
WildScapes is happy to work with and schedule presentations for architects, interior designers, and other professionals involved in developing your business environment.
Depending upon your preference, WildScapes also offers matting and framing.
Photography That Makes a Difference
In the case of hospitals, nature photography has been proven beneficial to patients. According to studies conducted by Texas A&M University, NASA, and the University of California, viewing nature imagery reduces patient stress, lowers systolic blood pressure and pulse, redirects negative thought, and decreases restlessness during treatment.
Photography can offer a connection to the outside world, a celebration of a particular location, or a touch of home. With WildScapes, even local, common, or easily identified locations and subjects are elevated to fine art.
Depending upon the nature of your business and your personal preference, WildScapes can create a fine art photo package that is calming or motivating, familiar or exotic. Our large selection of images allows you to create a collection that will appeal to a large audience.
Imagine a Place…
A speaker in an interior design conference in New York City asked an audience of 600 design professionals to close their eyes and imagine a comfortable, peaceful, inspiring place. When asked how many had envisioned an interior environment, none responded. All 600 had imagined a place in nature.
From a presentation of custom images to delivery of framed pieces, WildScapes works with you every step of the way.
In most cases, unframed work will be delivered to you or to your framer within three weeks of your final selection. Framed pieces are usually delivered within six to eight weeks of your final selection. Framing will be estimated separately.
The images shown in the Gallery section represent a small fraction of the fine art photography available from WildScapes. Based on your specific needs, WildScapes will assemble a customized, sample presentation reflecting a particular theme, location, or color scheme.
