I was first introduced to the American West while finishing my commitment to Uncle Sam, especially enjoying the area in Northern Arizona. During the next two decades I traveled throughout the West, from Southern California all the way to the San Juan Islands. Looking for a Home to sink my roots, I never forgot the beauty of Sedona.
I make my home in Sedona today, and still find that feeling of appreciation, stillness and peacefulness in Arizona's Red Rock Country that I discovered long ago. Inspired by majestic skies, red rock spires and monoliths, I hope that that peaceful feeling shows in my Photography and inspires others as well. ~ Tom
Montana has always been my dream, and has now become my reality. I live under the shadows of the Anaconda-Pintler mountains, with an immense forestland and wilderness as my backyard.
I love being outdoors, from the deserts to the mountains - embracing these gifts from God. I enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, 4-wheeling, snowmobiling, skiing, reading, or just sitting on the porch taking time to soak it all in.
I'm most ardent about taking photographs. Landscape, candid portraits, macro, and wildlife... but am happiest when out in an old corral, boot-deep in dust and manure shooting those moments in time of the working cowboy. I carry my camera with me always, combining my passion of photographical story-telling and love of the wilderness ... the place I called home.
Come and see what takes my breath away ~ Paula
|I fell in love with photography when I got my first camera as a child and again when I took courses in black and white photography in college. My final love affair with the art of photography happened when I discovered digital photography. My goal is to capture as many wonderful places, people and beautiful moments as I can and share them with the world. I live in north county San Diego, California, I'm a major contributor to www.calparks.org/gallery and a published salon photographer. ~ Julianne Bradford|
|From his home in Philadelphia, Christopher Muller's historic railroad photography has him covering America from coast-to-coast. As a lifelong railroad enthusiast and Internet entrepreneur since the age of 13, Muller has consulted with over 200 firms in the rail and travel industries. His works advocating rail development and preservation have been cited in dozens of books and periodicals. Muller's photography is available on his website, SteamPhotos.com, from which he donates a portion of all sales to railroad preservation efforts. ~ Chris Muller|
Retired from the insurance industry, I'm now a full fledged nature photography addict. My wife, Helen and I travel fairly extensively, visiting National Wildlife Refuges, National Parks, National Forests, Conservation Areas, Wilderness Areas and just about any other place that has natural beauty and wildlife.
Joseph Wood Krutch, and American Author and Naturalist, wrote: The wilderness and the idea of wilderness is one of the permanent homes of the human spirit. This quote serves as a great summary of how I feel about visiting and photographing wild places. ~ Tom
|With an extreme fondness for wilderness, Rob, The Wilderness Vagabond, explores what little remains of our precious public lands. Rob, an Idaho Native and having lived in every state, greatly appreciates the values of untrammeled public land. While noting the blue smoke (ORV) hoard, the geometric growth of the human population, the starter castle crowd and resource issues, making it unlikely that any but fragments of true wilderness will remain for future generations, Rob urges you to participate in muscle-powered recreation and enjoy an area up close rather than running over it with an ATV, snowmobile, or another insult to the Eaarth (Bill McKibben spelling and meaning). Rob enjoys sharing trip reports, photos, and philosphies, which can be seen on his web site.|
