Photo of Nemacladus rubescens


The majority of my online plant photos can be found on the Calphotos website, which is both searchable and has a lot of other people’s photos to compare to as well. I have over 38,000 photos there of over 3,000 taxa, primarily of plants from California, Oregon, and the Upper Midwest. The main goal of these photos is to help people with plant identification. While you may find some of my photos elsewhere that aren't include here, this is where I post the larger sets of plant photos focused on diagnostic characters and variation within taxa. Some taxonomy is out of date, so it is good to check synonyms for more recent name changes. All my Calphotos plant photos in order by scientific name Calphotos searching available here. If you click on the Calphotos link on a Calflora taxon page, this will show you everything on Calphotos of that taxon including synonyms.

In recent years, I have started posting some photos with location information to iNaturalist. iNaturalist is primarily where my nonplant photos go but I have posted many plant taxa there as well and many of these taxa I haven't gotten on Calphotos yet. If they are on both Calphotos and iNaturalist, Calphotos will generally have a much larger collection of photos from the same photoshoot. I highly recommend everyone post your observations of organisms to iNaturalist. This website has been very useful to my research and the research of many others.

In addition to my iNaturalist observations which you can follow, I also occasional post photos on Instagram which is also tied into my Facebook photography feed.

I have been asked whether I ever teach photography classes and I did teach one once. This was recorded and you can watch it here.
