Gary lives with his wife and family in California’s San Francisco Bay Area. Gary began taking pictures while attending Humboldt State University, where he received a Bachelors Degree in Social and Adolescent Psychology, and a Masters Degree in Directing, Acting, Writing, and Production for the Theater. After graduation, Gary spent nine years managing the stock department for Mountain Light and photographer Galen Rowell, where he became known for his industry expertise, and worked with many of the world's best-known advertising agencies, magazines, and publishers.
Gary began pursuing his own photography following the birth of his first child, when he opted to be a stay-at-home dad. Since then, his client and publication credits currently include the National Geographic Society, New York Times, Forbes Magazine, TIME Magazine, Victoria's Secret, The North Face, Sunset, L.L. Bean, Subaru, The Nature Conservancy, and The Carnegie Museum of Natural History to name but a few.
He has seven published books to his credit, including The California Coast (2001) which won "Book-of-the-Year 2002" by the California Outdoor Travel Writers Association. Other titles include Our San Francisco (2003), Yosemite & The Eastern Sierra (2004), Backroads of the California Wine Country (2006), Backroads of the California Coast (2009), and Greetings from California: Legends, Landmmarks and Lore of the Golden State (2011). His latest book is Photographing California; Vol. 1 – North (2012).
In addition to his stock, assignment, and photographics prints and wall murals, Gary also offers a variety of other services, including consulting, photo editing & research, public presentations & lectures, and custom private & group photo workshops.
