Welcome to Bob Bowman Photography

""You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved" - Ansel Adams

Please look through the galleries and remember to check back from time to time as I am always adding new pictures. I hope my images inspire you as life has inspired me.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to check out my work.



I fell in love with photography as a teenager while backpacking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I wanted a way to take the beauty of those places home with me and photography provided the perfect avenue for me to accomplish that wish.

Life has taken me down many paths and I have been blessed with the ability to try many things. However, my love for photography has remained constant. Throughout the years, both family and friends have not only complimented me on my natural eye for photography, but also tried to encourage me to get into photography professionally. So, in the beginning of 2011 i did just that and started my photography business and named it RMB Images. In the beginning of 2014 I renamed the business to Bob Bowman Photography.

I do this now for all those who have inspired and had faith in me. This site is my way of offering to you the opportunity to take home a piece of the beauty in our world as seen though my eyes both now and in years to come. It was also created for you to follow my most recent work and follow me on my recent journey's.

I currently live in Sonoma County in Northern California. I relocated here from Los Angeles and consider Northern California my home. California is my photography playground and feel so blessed to live with so much beauty in such close proximity. My passion developed in the mountains but my soul lives at the coast.

I use a Nikon D300, D600 and D810 camera bodies. The lenses I use most are Nikon 16-35mm f4, Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 and Nikon 70-200mm f4. I use an array of Hitech ND and GND filters and B+W 3, 6, 10 and polarizer filters. I use carbon fiber Manfrotto tripod with Acratech Inc. ball head.

I hope all who view and wish to share my pictures will enjoy this visual journey with me. I also like to consider myself as accessible. If you have any questions about purchasing work or photography in general, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your interest in my work,

Bob Bowman
