WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE. IT WILL TAKE A FEW SECONDS FOR THE SLIDESHOW TO LOAD ON THE RIGHT - I THINK YOU WILL FIND IT WORTH THE WAIT.

Please take your time to browse through the various galleries on this website (below) and enjoy the images I have captured or created. Click on "Show More" to see all galleries. Nature and wildlife are my favorite subjects but I have been known to turn my Canon on anything that catches my interest. Thanks for visiting.

When you view a gallery as a SLIDESHOW, you will hear background music selected to enhance the visual presentation.


About
Contact Info

I was raised on a cattle ranch in Siskiyou County, CA.. Many of my photographs are from that area and my book, Life at The End of a Dirt Road, is a largely humorous account of growing up in that part of the country. Click the "MY BOOK" link above for more information.

My rural upbringing gave me a strong appreciation for God’s creation and a desire to capture and share elements of it through photography. I have been fortunate to have photographs published in magazines and various brochures and I am now selling my work in a number of galleries.

Most images in the galleries on this website are available for purchase as fine art prints but many of the same images are applied to a variety of fun or useful gift items in the PHOTO ART GIFTS gallery and even more are available on my ZAZZLE website. If you can imagine some of these images on a mug, T-shirt, tote bag, cards calendars, postage stamps, etc., be sure to check out the ZAZZLE site and gift gallery on this website.


MOST PRINTS AND GIFT ITEMS CAN BE PURCHASED IN MULTIPLE CURRENCIES AND SHIPPED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. AFTER ADDING AN ITEM TO YOUR CART, SELECT THE "SHIPPING TO" LOCATION AND APPROPRIATE CURRENCY IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE CART WINDOW.

If you have questions or are interested in image licensing or options not available here, please contact me by email.

PHOTOGRAPHERS: I frequently use TOPAZ, a Photoshop plug-in, to give my images that extra special look. You can view their image processing products HERE.

I ALSO WRITE ARTICLES ON SQUIDOO. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO VISIT MY SQUIDOO ARTICLES, CLICK HERE.

Guestbook for Chuck Nelson Photography

It was lovely to meet you at Tawnee & Chris' wedding, we thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with you and your wife. Your photos are lovely and I particularly love the flowers. Like you, Chris loves photography of nature. Thank you for giving us your card and we will certainly be looking through your work once again, after we finish the move to Oakdale.

Best Regards,
Cathy & Chris

You sir are a master and an inspiration to the art of photography as well as an ambassador to nature that only a few have seen or someday hope to see. As I am just starting out in photography the past few years. I can only hope that someday I acquire half the eye that you have and have gifted us that opportunity to view.
