Biography

I am a professional photographer on the central coast of California. My early photography was fueled primarily by a passion for searching out, experiencing and capturing those moments when light, subject and setting collaborate to yield extraordinary and dramatic images. Nature photography was a natural extension of my love of everything wild. Neil Donaldson
My formal education is in architecture and business and as a manufacturing executive in Southern California, I branched out into architectural and product photography. I now live in Morro Bay with my beautiful wife Karen. My photography business is primarily focused on architectural, product, food, and fine-art landscapes. Additionally, educational workshops have become a natural extension of my desire to share and teach what I have learned through the years. I also run flōt-art, the float-mount photo printing business that I founded in 2009 and Central Coast Real Estate Photography. In addition to the blogs that I write on this site, and at flotart.com and centralcoastrealestatephotography.com, I have written an e-book Preparing Digital Images for Printing – A Step-by-Step Guide.
Never one to sit on my laurels, I am constantly expanding my photographic pursuits. I was making and printing large, multi-image, stitched panoramas from scanned transparencies long before there was software to automate the process. I am now expanding my skills to producing virtual tours for my architectural clients and 360° spin views for my commercial product photography clients. I have recently developed a renewed passion for night photography and painting with light.
