Hi, my name is Charlie Russell, and I’ve always been interested in photographing wildflower in California, and around the world. In recent years I’ve started branching out into wildlife, bird and landscape photo as well. This website features the best of my photos, as well as including some pages that go into detail on some of my favorite natural places to visit. I hope that you enjoy them!
For some background:
- I am a Certified California Naturalist
- I lead tours at the Jepson Prairie Preserve, where I’m a docent
- I am also a docent for the Yolo Basin Foundation educational program, as well as helping with the bat talk and walks program
- I’m a volunteer with Northern California Bats, where I help with public education and rescue of bats
You may be interested in my other website, Wildflower Hikes, where I post articles about the places that I’ve visited to capture these (and many other) subjects.
You can also keep up with the latest in my wildflower discoveries at my California Wildflower Hikes Facebook page.
Purchasing Photos: Many of my photos are available to purchase, as prints, canvases and other formats. See my photo purchasing page for details.
