Self Portrait - on a catamaran off Santa Barbara, 2012

Michael Nixon

I am an amateur photographer who enjoys the reaction my senses experience when confronted with the combination of what nature provides through light, texture, shape and format.

The photographs on this site have been taken over the last two decades with a variety of mostly point and shoot cameras, some with cellphone cameras, the most recent with a Nikon D7100. Unfortunately I do not have the few photographs I took with a home made pin hole camera a long time ago, otherwise they would be here too.

Some images are scanned from prints that I no longer have. I have included photographs of poor image quality as well, simply because I like the composition and they remind me of a place in time that has come and gone.
