Mark Salvestrin

The camera is the least important element in photography.” — Julius Shulman

Mark Salvestrin combines his love of Nature with his passion for photography.  While he has done commercial, wedding and portrait photography, he has chosen to focus on creating images that capture the “art” that can be found in the wild places he visits.

His love of the outdoors is reflected in the images he creates and the viewer will struggle to find anything man-made in the frame.  His ultimate challenge however, is to create images that will inspire people to look at nature a little differently as they walk through their own wild places.

When not writing about himself in the third person, Mark enjoys hunting, fishing and backpacking with his family.  He lives in St. Helena, where he was born and raised, with his wife Amy and daughters Hailey and Kaitlyn.
