Nevada County is blessed with a remarkable array of talented local photographers who spend time capturing the splendor of our Sierra Nevada Foothills via the lens of their cameras. All of the photography used on our website was taken in Nevada County and generously donated by our talented team of photographers.
Thank you all for your ability to capture the beauty that symbolizes the spirit and diversity of our community.
Nevada County lured me here 20 years ago with its beauty. This is where I have raised my 5 daughters. My love affair with the outdoors took root while growing up on a farm/ranch in the Texas hill country near Austin. I received a degree in Architecture from the University of Houston, and my minor was in photography. My desire for more elbow room brought me to beautiful Nevada County and my career path returned to my true passion, the art of photography.
Douglas enjoys spending much of his free time hiking, swimming and photographing the Yuba watershed. “While out in nature I connect with the elements by being very still and observing a scene for some time before taking a photo.There is a lot out there that wants to be revealed if only we can slow down to see it.”
“The only reason I’d move up there is for the night sky.” That’s what I used to tell my mom, who was always trying to get me to move up to Nevada County. Nevada County, before all of its beautiful scenery, is about the people. People living life to the fullest in a beautiful setting of diverse culture and Mother Nature. The community’s alive here – I love capturing this as best I can.

John received a roll-film bellows Kodak from his grandfather when he was 8 years old. He has avidly enjoyed making pictures ever since.
“John remains reluctant to think too highly of his work–he does not sell his photos, but gives them away from the massive pile on our side table in the dining room! His eye for composition, beauty in nature, and human emotion is expressed in his photos; I love to see him “work” as well as look over his shoulder when he is editing.” -Robin Mallery
