Carrie BartonFor Carrie, photography is not only a passion but a way of seeing. Every subject holds potential in color, pattern, beauty, or emotion, but her favorites are landscapes and nature. In recent years, she and her husband have been RVing. To see her travel blogs (with photos), see here: and here:


Robert BennettI am a Vista Attorney who started taking pictures at age ten. Using a Mamiya 1000s and Canon Digital Rebel during the past two years to capture images has added fuel to the fire. Thanks to Michael Seewald, Donna Cosentino, Will Tompkins and Paul Johnson, I now look at practicing law as something that interferes with my never ending effort to capture interesting images.


Jeffrey R. BrosbeI look upon creating the image much as a poet must feel about creating a haiku. It should be whole in its surface observation while offering commentary in its interpretation. In 1994, more than three decades later after my start in photography, I offered my art to the general public with the creation of Beyond Words Fine Art Photography. Web Site:


Doug BurgessDoug recently retired from software development and now plans to make photography and Photoshop his hobby. Sally Burgess will retire next year, and she just got her first digital camera, a Canon s50. Doug just got his first digital camera, a Nikon D70, and he loves it. Doug and Sally live in Carlsbad and travel as much as they can. Doug teaches math part time at Mira Costa/Palomar Colleges.


Jim Clineis a travel photographer whose area of special interest is in the countries of Latin America. He especially enjoys exploring less-traveled areas, and takes particular interest in the indigenous peoples and traditional cultures. Jim leads photographic tours to Baja California, Mexico, Guatemala and Peru.


Peter FayPhotography has been a passion for much of Peter's life but it wasn't until he retired from a career in engineering that he had the time to really pursue it. The primary sources of inspiration and material for his portfolio have been worldwide travel and hiking in wilderness, but he has also found wonderful material right in "his own backyard".


Nancy HackerI've loved photography eversince my first Brownie snapshot. Since living in the Pacific Northwest and now in San Diego I have gotten more serious about my photography. Joining NCPS has inspired me to up my game. I'm a retired dental hygienist. Web Site:


Fred HeinzmannFred is a retired engineer who has had photography as a hobby off and on since he was a teenager. The advent of digital technology has breathed new life into the hobby.


Grant HulbertA software engineer by trade, Grant became interested in photography when digital cameras first became viable with 4+ megapixels. His new favorite camera is Micro 4/3 Panasonic DMC-GX7 with f1.7 40mm equivalent pancake lens


Chris HunkelerI enjoy photographing individual athletes at wrestling meets, triathalons, ocean swims and people just out staying fit. I also enjoy taking photos while on vacation, on motorcycle rides or on four wheel drive excursions into the desert. Web Site:


Dori JohnsenPlease type a short description of yourself. This will be displayed on your main gallery link


Sonja LongleyI have always been intrigued by the serendipidous part of photography: things not obvious with the naked eye but come to light through a macro lens or with certain post-processing methods. My recent passion for creating abstracts came about in this way.


Bob MandichTwo of my favorite hobbies are travel and photography--especially people. I enjoy the interaction and rapport with the subjects, even if is only a conversation, a "Please", "Thank you" or a handshake. My first gallery is an example of this.


Joyce Mateprojects her connection to nature, especially through her floral and landscape images. Nature scenes, particularly in the Midwest, stir her artistic emotions. All in all, if a scene can be photographed and Joyce has her camera nearby, she'll capture it. Joyce won First Place (Blue Ribbon Award) at the International Exhibition of Photography, 2010 San Diego County Fair with her Abstract shot in Chicago's Millenium Park.


Robert McClanahanI do a lot of landscapes. However; regardless of the subject I want to expand my skills and capture more of what Feininger called the intangible. in other words - more emotional impact.


Bill McIntireAfter retirement, I discovered that digital photography is a terrific pastime with unlimited opportunities for being creative, for learning and for buying more stuff.


Kathy NashKathy enjoys nature and travel photography and is always in pursuit of a forgotten barn or dramatic light in her native Minnesota or in Montana where she spends several months each year. Her favorite subjects in San Diego are the varying moods and colors of the ocean and lagoons.


Dan NougierFor travel images, I try to bring home intimate pieces rather than the whole city. It is always a challenge trying to distill a large chaotic scene into the simplest elements that still convey all the emotions of the grander area. Most of my older images are 35mm slides, many of which went on to become Polaroid transfers and lifts. I still enjoy dusting off my Holga and pin hole cameras. However, my current workhorse is a Canon 5D.


Martin OretskyCombining photography and travel is one of my hobbies.


Diane PeckI am a native or Rochester New York and a former employee of Eastman Kodak Company. I have been a member of PSA (Photographic Society of America) since 2004. I compete in PSA International Exhibition competitions and have won a number of honorable mentions and a Judge’s Choice Award. I belong to Exploring Light Virtual Camera Club (Vice-President), Southern California Council of Camera Clubs (previous Secretary), Southern California Roundup Chapter and North County Photographic Society. I continue to judge competitions throughout Southern California. I love shooting a variety of subjects, especially anything having to do with water. Other favorites are old things, cars and buildings, and my dog, Maggie. But, as opportunities present themselves, I just shoot.


James David PhenicieJames is a Carlsbad-based wedding and portraiture photographer. Photography has afforded him the ability to communicate with those with whom he has come in contact, to share a common interest in the beauty of life, taking the instant to capture a snapshot of a moment in time of what he's seen, felt and revered.


Kevin PriceKevin specializes in photographing reptiles and amphibians, particularly rattlesnakes, in their natural environment and usually at night.


Wayne RichardA dedicated photographer for over 50 years, I am driven by passion and emotion that I compell captures of my imagery. I invite you to take a moment to visit my galleries and enjoy some of my work!


Sandy Zelasko Sandra Lee PhotographyHello, thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy browsing through some of my images. Click on the link below or the picture to the left to be transferred to my website or click on my name above to see my galleries here on the NCPS website.


Tom O ScottI do some landscapes, but abstracts are my true love. Each of the images in this gallery represents a portfolio on my website -


Michael SeewaldSeewald's images communicate in a quiet, lyrical way. Speaking to the photographer, one feels that this is an individual so in love with his art, so in love with the world, that he'll work for as long as he's able to see. Visit Website


Sanford ShermanI took a course at UCSD in photography and aesthetics. One of the lectures included a study of Western concepts of beauty originating from the art of the Greeks and the Romans. Then my wife, Ann Force, and I were in the museums and Roman Villas of Italy. We were overwhelmed by the volume and beauty of the ancient art. Now it was just a matter of holding the camera steady because no flash or tripods are allowed.

John C. Stires IIIA late-September trip to Katmai, Alaska, yielded ten beautiful days of intense and extreme bear activity. All shot with Canon 5D-II, 100-400 IS lens and a monopod. is THE consumate guide organization with a 110' boat used as a 'motel room'. Katmai is on the same longitude as Hilo.


Barbara SwansonI have enjoyed creating and sharing images for many years. I am especially drawn to photographing nature, ranging from capturing the detail and beauty of flowers to landscapes. I use both digital and film formats and only minimally alter my photos in the digital darkroom.


Andrew SziklaPlease type a short description of yourself. This will be displayed on your main gallery link


Cindy TaicletTaking pictures - of anything and everything - has been a passion of mine since I was in the third grade. Some of the pictures turn out great, others don't. I love digital photography as it allows me to "snap away" and not worry about film / development costs; just shoot and delete. By joining this club, I hope to improve my skills so that pictures become great photos.

Ted WhirledgePhotography is fun! It combines planning and adventure with exploring to unite seeing, experience and ...heart. I want to make and SHARE original images that can affect viewers in some way for having seen them.


Judi WorksI enjoy capturing wildlife images. I enjoy the challenge of taking photographs from my kayak and while hiking and traveling. My images have received awards at the Carlsbad/O'side art Show, San Diego County Fair and NCPS Contests. A few of my pictures have appeared in the San Diego Union Neewspaper as well as the North County Times and Coast News and Beach Break News. I take photographs to make art and to make photographs that please men and inspire others with their beauty.
