Gary Hart

Gary Hart has photographed California’s natural beauty for over 30 years. Gary’s photos and writing have appeared in many publications, most recently Outdoor Photographer and Sierra Heritage magazines. You’ll also find his images in greeting cards, postcards, calendars, and many galleries and private collections throughout the world.

Gary is an experienced and enthusiastic trainer and guide who conducts photo workshops and private photo tours in some of the West’s most scenic locations. Gary’s upcoming photography workshops include Yosemite, the Eastern Sierra, Death Valley, and Hawaii.

Galleries and Exhibitions

My work can be viewed in these galleries:

  • Appel Gallery, 10th and T in Sacramento
  • Midtown Framing and Gallery, 22nd and J in Sacramento

And of course you can always make an appointment to visit my studio.

What’s Going On

  • I’m a frequent contributor to Outdoor Photographer and Sierra Heritage magazines
  • I continue to offer classes at the Sacramento Learning Exchange—check their catalog for upcoming offerings
  • My book of images, The Undiscovered Country, is a hardcover book featuring my images and classic poetry (Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson, and many others). It is completely sold out at Barnes & Noble, but I still have a few copies available for sale.
  • My workshops continue to fill far in advance, and my private, guided photo tours of Yosemite and other locations (for groups and individuals) have become quite popular as well.
  • I have a monthly e-mail newsletter with news and an “Image of the Month.” Recipients also get advance notice of shows and workshops, and discounts on prints. Please sign up below if you’d like to be included. (E-mail addresses are kept private and shared with no one.)

As always, thank you for your support. If you like what you see here, please spread the word by sharing my sites with others.
