As the light strikes the earth below, magical things happen; capturing them requires being there - in the right place at the right time. Photographer Bob Johnson's
aim is to convey a sense of that magic, preserving these special sights for future generations to enjoy as well.
Bob was born in 1959 and had the good (and bad) fortune to have moved frequently while growing up. Visiting many of the National Parks in the western United States along the way, he developed a love of nature at an early age. Finding a creative outlet in photography, he combined these two passions, and has been photographing the natural world for nearly two decades.
Bob currently makes his home in Seattle, Washington, and does most of his work in and around the Pacific Northwest including Mt. Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks. However, he has been known to take his camera equipment with him when he travels. Working with Nikon's 35mm system and fine-grained slide films has enabled him to achieve the quality and flexibility necessary to create stunning images.
He is currently working on a book entitled "Once Earthbound" with friend and poet Kerry Rutherford.
Bob is a member of NANPA, the North American Nature Photography Association, and is also a skilled website designer.
