Simple Naturalist Books

About Simple Naturalist

Simple Naturalist became an entity as a business in June 1996. In the early stages it sold framed photographs, created wood and pinecone art, leather journals and chapbooks made from hand pressed paper.

Simple Naturalist Books is an extension of the original mission of representing the natural world, unfiltered.

Keeping true to simplicity, all photos incorporate the human element for composition, color and depth and are in the moment, without purposeful staging, use of telephoto lenses, photo editing or enhancements.

Our Books

Journey Into Timelessness is a wonderful slender volume that presents poetic images from New Mexico's ancestral past and draws readers into a world of beauty and mystery in the natural world.
