Website Updates: Redesigned Nature Photography Gallery

Nature Photography Gallery

The gallery section of my website has been looking a little out-dated lately, so I decided to re-design it to include more nature photography along with new sections for my portrait photography and architectural photography. It's a cleaner look, the navigation is easier, and there's an entirely new section titled "Collections." This is where you'll find my ongoing artistic studies of certain subjects or photographic styles.

My personal favorite is "The Palms Collection" - an ongoing study of multiple exposures on black and white film showcasing the iconic silhouettes of California palm trees in a unique way. I'm also just starting to dive deeper into "The Joshua Tree Collection" which is a series of images highlighting individual Joshua Trees and the unique shapes they take on. The classic black and white styling and simple compositional approach is designed to feature the individual "personalities" of these iconic yuccas as if the images were photographic portraits. And, of course, there's "The Orange County Collection," an ongoing project to capture the beaches, hills, and sunsets that grace my backyard.

I'm known much more for my nature photography than anything else, but I'm no slouch when it comes to portrait photography, so I decided to share my portraiture work (however rare it may be) in the new "People" gallery. And with plans to shoot a lot more buildings and structures in the near future, I put together a gallery of my architectural photography that is still very much in its infancy. And to showcase my completed, framed artwork, you'll find a new section called "Completed Projects." In addition to all of this you'll find new sections titled "For Art Buyers & Consultants" and "About the Artwork."

Take a break from your busy day and check out the new gallery!
