Since I have lived in the mountains of Yosemite and the eastern Sierra my entire professional career, I have never considered myself much of an ocean photographer. I have always felt a bit out-of-place at the water’s edge.  Many individuals consider Big Sur the most beautiful meeting of land and water in the entire world. They might be right! I am continually reminded of three key concepts that I teach in my workshops. “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”  And to do that, one must return again, and again. I seldom make my best images on a first visit to a new location. I have returned here many, many times over the years. My old friend and mentor, Galen Rowell always mentioned, “One's inevitable failures provide important clues to predicting eventual success”. I am getting closer to seeing “rightly” at Big Sur.

Purchase Guide:

Print purchases are a two step process.

STEP 1: You select size and print type (matted print, or canvas). This first payment purchases the unfinished print or a canvas at the price you see at the time of online purchase and it secures your place in our production queue. 
STEP 2: We will call you to complete your order with a perfect frame, matting upgrades, glass choices, other customizations, appropriate shipping charges and taxes are applied and with that second and final charge the purchase is complete.  

Margaret and Vern both want your purchase to be exactly as you want it.  Creating investment worthy photographs for your walls requires our direct personal attention.
