Nature based fine art photography by Randy Craig including elements of wilderness wildlife remote landscapes and beautiful female nudes in the Pacific Northwest.... Where do I find beauty? I find it in nature, mostly; through wildlife, landscapes, isolated details and patterns, and in graceful human form. I am an avid hiker and lover of the outdoors. Exploring new places and observing all aspects of the natural world have always been important parts of my life....
Living in the West provides easy access to many of our most spectacular National Parks. Over the past several years, I have been fortunate enough to visit and photograph in most of the western parks. This Showcase features some of my favorite images made during those visits. I especially enjoy visiting the National Parks during the "off season". Not only are the parks much less crowded, but the photography is often better as well. The most dramatic photographs are often the result of what most people would consider "bad" weather. To photograph Yosemite Valley or Zion under a fresh coat of snow requires waiting out a winter storm. I also love the dramatic light that often follows or precedes storms as they sweep across the red rock landscapes of the Southwest. ..... The idea that a nation would set aside large tracts of land to preserve and protect them for the enjoyment of future generations has often been called "the best idea America ever had". This idea became a reality with the signing of the Yellowstone National Park Act of 1872. For the first time, a country's federal government had created a park "for the benefit and enjoyment of the people." Canada soon followed suit with the creation of Rocky Mountains National Park (later re-named Banff National Park) in 1885. In 1957, the Navajo Nation in the Four Corners region of the American Southwest created their own Parks and Recreation Department, and their first National Park - Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.
Marc s style is unmistakable. His talent for rare captures of amazing light and fleeting atmosphere imbue his portfolio with a sense of the epic, majestic and the bold. His success derives from patient single-minded pursuit of all the unique moments that generate the magic and energy of the wilderness, often spending months immersing himself in the landscape he shoots despite the rigors of season and weather. Marc s photographs have been published extensively worldwide in a large variety of media ranging from calendars, books, advertising and the publications of National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, Popular Photography and many more.

Coos Bay is a beautiful coastal town located in southern part of the state. It is the state s largest coastal city. The port transports a wide variety of items, but the vast majority of the tonnage consists of wood products. The ships reach the the city guided by the famous Cape Arago Lighthouse. Once past the lighthouse the ships then make their way past the cities of Charleston, Empire and North Bend and finally reach Coos Bay by going under the Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge. The phonetic name of the city is küs bay; the s is not said as a z and the ü takes on the oo sound. Thus Koos Bay is the proper pronunciation. This picture below of a plaque along the boardwalk explains how the area got it s name. Many people visit the area strictly for the Oregon photograph opportunities. Photographers can be found taking stunning coastal and beautiful inland mountain pictures. The sunsets over the Pacific offer some of the most spectacular to be seen anywhere in the world. During the winter the sunsets can really be spectacular, and if you look a bit to the south you can often find some awesome rainbows. There is normally a fog bank on a clear night over the horizon which is about 23 miles offshore. As the sun crests behind the fog bank the colors in the clouds make an excellent opportunity for photographers. The colors are dazzling to say the least.
