Fine-art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as a photographer, using photography as a medium to bring something to life that only lives in the artist's mind. Simply capturing what one sees in an artistic way is the art of photography and not creating fine art. The goal of fine-art photography is to express an idea, a message, or an emotion. This stands in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally representing objective reality rather than the subjective intent of the photographer; and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services.

Starting in 1964, Mr. Wyckoff was taking pictures and developing them in his basement at home in Western Springs, buying his supplies at the local jewelry shop (King's) where the proprieter was a hobbyist himself. With inestimable help from his father, Roger Wyckoff, a local professional portrait photographer, Mr Wyckoff started taking the hobby seriously. In 1966, he entered and won first place ($100!) in Eastman Kodak's Nationsl Scholastic Photo Contest.. From there he joined the staff of the Lyons twonship High School Tabulae, the large high school's yearbook where his work was featured in two years of publications. Then onto the "Lion" the school's newspaper, again explorint the medium. At college (1969-1973) at Drake University in DesMoines, Iowa he majored in (an graduated with) a degree in Journalism and Graphic Arts, putting on a one-man show at a local gallery and was published in the school's art and poetry magazine.

Following graduation, Mr. Wyckoff worked in various capacities at his father's portrait studio in LaGrange, Illinois until breaking away to form Wyckoff Advertising, Inc. in 1984, which he operates to this day.

Growing up comfortable with film cameras of every size (8x10" Deardorffs to Nikon F's) he made the switch to full digital in 2007, when digital cameras were, at last, capable of producing acceptable commercially viable photographs. Since then, he has seen the vast improvements in cameras, lenses and post-production softwar and is an enthusiastic user of all of these. Adding a DJI Inspire 1 drone to his arsenal (along with the appropriate license) has further expanded his photographi horizons. Today much of his energy is expended on creating exceptional digital, archival prints of both his legacy film work and his current digital work, to the delight of his audience.
