Stunning Travel Destination and Landscape Photography

 
 
 
 

My Name is Gary Crabbe. Welcome to my web site. I hope you enjoy your visit. As a line from one of my favorite movies, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? says:

“Come On In Boys; The Water Is Fine.”

I am a scenic outdoor landscape and travel photographer specializing in commercial and editorial location photography assignments, book projects, and stock photography from throughout California and the western United States. Most of my images are also available as Fine Art Photographic Prints and Wall Murals for private collectors, corporate, and hospitality decor industry clients. I also offer additional services like private photo workshops, presentations, Photo-Editing, and consulting.

Under Construction

I’ve just recently released my new mobile-friendly responsive version of my web site. Currently this site is under a good amount of construction, so please excuse the dust while we finish putting up the dry wall, paint, add some nice hardwood floors, granite tile counters, and of course, lots of nice new photos on the walls. New Galleries and pages will be added soon.  – Note: A few scattered links may take you to my old HTML web site. If that happens, you can always return to the new site by clicking the “HOME” links.

Thanks for your understanding. ~ The Management.
