Welcome to my natural backgrounds Gallery!

I create and use these natural backgrounds for a wide variety of purposes in my nature photography. One of the most common uses are printed backgrounds to imitate bokeh (blur) for small subjects when you need to use a small aperture. You get the detail in your subject without the harsh and often distracting elements behind your subject.

You can click on any image in the gallery below and select the "Buy" button in the upper right corner to purchase a print.


Hint: I always print the backgrounds on the cheapest paper possible because I use them in the field and they get worn over time.
