Central California Landscape and Nature Photography

My name is Mike Matenkosky and live in Atwater, which is located in the Central Valley of California, just about 90 miles from Yosemite National Park. I specialize in landscape, nature and wildlife photography. From the smallest bird to the largest mountain; I love it all, but my passion is Landscape Photography. I just love seeing what God has created!

Fine Art Prints for Sale

All of my pictures are available for sale as fine art prints or for stock photography licensing. So I encourage you to spend some time browsing my online galleries and I hope you find that perfect photograph for your home or office. If you're looking for something that you don't see here, visit my nature photography blog. I post all of my new pictures here first, and some of those images never get posted to my online nature gallery. So I encourage you to subscribe to my blog with updates and new pictures via e-mail or RSS feed.

Any Questions

If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to help you!
