About Greg Starnes Photography
I am a Fine Art Landscape/Cityscape and Portrait Photographer from the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. I enjoy photographing the beauty of the world around us, whether it be in the quiet solitude of nature or the hustle and bustle of great cities around the world. It’s amazing the peacefulness and serenity that one can find just a few miles from civilization. I truly have a fond appreciation for the beauty of nature and I strive to capture that beauty in my photography. I am especially drawn to our National Parks, especially Yosemite. Some of my favorite places to shoot are Hawaii, particularly the North Shore of Kauai, Sedona and the Desert Southwest, Ireland, Italy, and the California Pacific Coast. I also love to shoot just about anywhere you can find water and of course in and around the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. I am a self-taught photographer and I grew up spending many hours in the darkroom learning to take my photography craft to a higher level. Of course, today’s darkroom is a computer and software. Gone are the bulky enlargers and a shelf full of smelly chemicals. I embraced to digital photography in the early 2000’s and the new “digital film” reinvigorated my interest in photography fueled my quest for good light!
