Mary has seventeen years experience as a photographer – newspaper and landscape. She lives in Napa where she focuses on photographing events, people, vineyards and Nature. Her photographs have been used by numerous publications, including magazines and books, National Geographic Books and assignment work for the New York Times.
“A perfect balance is created with the photography of nature and people. My time in our natural world offers a connection to a deep source of quiet inspiration and with people they share their energy and give of themselves by simply allowing me to photograph their lives as experienced – all the love, joy, playfulness, emotion and realism of life truly lived. Time in nature and time with people – it’s a perfect balance indeed.”
