About the Author

David resides in Woodland Hills, California, with his wife, Ria, and dog, Dudley. He spends as much time as possible traveling, photographing, and teaching workshops along the back roads of the United States.

Brian Valente was born and raised living among the redwood forests and ferns of Marin County, California. He discovered photography later in life but quickly discovered it was an ideal medium to convey his sense of wonder about the natural world. Brian has won numerous awards and accolades for his photographic work and exhibits primarily in California. When he's not out photographing nature, he's behind his telescope conducting deep-space and planetary imaging.
