Coby Walters is a conservation photographer who genuinely cares about the environment and wants to bring its issues to people’s awareness and attention. “When I see human actions that harm the environment or native plant species it makes me angry.”
Coby is exceptionally good at seeing fine details that most others overlook. He is well versed in native plant species; the California Native Plant Society has used several of his images for their publications. He has also had several slide show presentations at their meetings.
Coby’s interest in photography began when he was 8 years old using disposable Kodak Film cameras. His interest in photography continued to grow as a child, and then when he went to High School he took and excelled in a digital photography class. His high school teacher was so impressed with his budding talent that she gifted him a digital camera.
After graduation from High School, Coby enrolled in photography classes at Butte College in Durham, California. He is currently enrolled and taking a variety of photo technique and field trip classes.
Coby has had a number of gallery shows of his photography, among them, 3rd Street Gallery, Arden Library in Sacramento, Sue’s Java Café, Regional Center and Vagabond Rose.
When asked about his future plans, “I’d like to continue to expand my photography career, creating compelling images that people want to display in their homes and offices, to show them the beauty I see from my perspective. I would also like to contribute images to national and international publications to further conservation causes.”
Coby is always open to opportunities to show and license his images and may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
