Flower, Botanical and Landscape Photography by Mike Reid

I am from Seattle and love living here, having been most everywhere else. I am primarily a floral, nature and landscape photographer. As well as being sponsored by Zeiss Lenses, I am the in-house photographer for the Sky View Observatory atop the Columbia Center. I mostly shoot Sony A7R2 and Zeiss prime lenses. ~ Mike

Iceland Photography

Honestly this trip changed my life....corny as that sounds. I did the Everest base camp trek in Feb and Banff in June and they paled in comparison. The thing about Iceland is sometimes we shooters go on trips and feel pressure to get great shots. But Iceland is so awesome that the amazing shots just keep throwing themselves at you. Its just relentless. At some point I just relaxed and took it all in. #iceland

Banff and Canadian Rockies Photography

I finally made a trip the Banff area for photos. I think its hard to be a landscape photographer and not be aware of the beauty in this area. June seemed to be a good time to go. Lakes were melted out and the summer crowds had yet to hit hard. #banff

Northwest Photography

The beauty of the Northwest part of the United States is unique, ever-changing and unsurpassed anywhere else in the nation. It's a photographer's paradise, an outdoor enthusiast's playground and a joy to call home. In this section, I've placed images from around the area in a structure that groups them by location. I hope you get a sense of the immense treasure we have here in the NW. #enchantments

Flower Photography

Flower Photography by Mike Reid - Like I said on my main page, thin depth of field photography is my poetry. And flowers with their romantic softness and colors are my main subject. I use selective focus to re-create that mood with my Zeiss fast prime lenses. The year is one revelation after another as various months bring new blooms and opportunities in the garden. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do. #flowers #flowerphotography
