Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle
"Point Reyes Visions." The book made it to my coffee table in my office (no small feat). When confounded when a story falls through, I open it up and the beautiful photography is like I've been hit with a tranquilizer dart. There's hardly an inch of Point Reyes I haven't seen and the slick, color photos not only capture the place, but are like windows looking at past adventures. Sections on adjacent Tomales Bay and Mount Tamalpais are a bonus to the jewel-quality photos
Northern California Bohemian
“These images evoke the untamed nature of the Point Reyes peninsula, captured in striking beauty by photographer Richard Blair and writer Kathleen Goodwin, the husband-and-wife team responsible for this museum-quality art book that showcases the place they have called home since 1988. The wildlife, the people, the landmarks, the rugged spirit of this place that attracts travelers from throughout the world and holds local residents under its spell, all are displayed here.
Marin Independent Journal
“A stunning new book called Point Reyes Visions, an album of words and pictures about rural West Marin. Blair’s pictures of the ocean, farmlands and wildlife leap from the 9-by-11 inch pages of this book, printed in vivid, true-to-life color.Waves sparkle; Drake’s Bay’s yellow cliffs glow in the sunshine”.
Pacific Sun
“The scenic wonders of the North Bay area have generated any number of lovely books, but surely the most beautiful volume ever done is Point Reyes Visions by Richard Blair and Kathleen Goodwin. The selection of scenes is inspired, and the photography is magnificent”.
California Wild, California Academy of Sciences
“Point Reyes Visions dazzles the eye with its high-quality reproduction of photographs”.

Richard Blair has been working as a photographer since 1969. As park photographer in Yosemite, he received an award from the Secretary of the Interior for photographing a rescue on El Cap.
