Profotos Member Biography - George Graves

Having grown up as a kid on a small farm in the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon, I have always been very close to the outdoor environment. My Dad taught me how to hunt and fish at a very early age, since that was his passion in life.

My early beginnings in photography came after high school graduation when I worked during college summer breaks as a member of a local forest service “hot shot” fire suppression crew that were, with the smoke jumpers, the first people to arrive on a forest fire. Needless to say, the surroundings were dramatic and that prompted me to start carrying a little Kodak instamatic camera. During college, a friend loaned me a 35mm rangefinder camera which I used for a photography class and I was hooked on photography.

Now, some 40 years later, I have spent considerable time honing my skills, studying the experts in the field, utilizing almost all camera formats, and traveling to some very photogenic locales. Landscape and nature photography has truly become my passion in life.

Through all of this, I have come to realize quite vividly that transitions in our surroundings are what it is all about photographically. Whether it be: from dawn to twilight, summer to fall, prairies to mountain foothills, storm to calm, ripples to cascades, surf to storm battered cliffs; these are the magical moments and places that I try to capture.

My work focus is in: Sierra Nevada, Yosemite, Central Calif Coast, Pacific Northwest, Southwest Canyons, and International Travel.

My images of central California coast are on display at the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Gallery in Cambria, Calif.

I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I did in experiencing them.
