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 with a light touch with regards to processing. ~ Mike

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.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do. #flowers To buy a fine art print of any of these images, please contact me by email
