About Steve Zimmerman/SZ Images

Growing up in southwestern Ohio, Steve trained himself to see the fantastic structure within a flower, the iridescence of fish scales or bird feathers and the repeating patterns present all around him.  In the 1990's, he moved to the Pacific Northwest, where he resides today, amongst the mountain ranges and on the very edge of the continent...still discovering all the details the natural world chooses to reveal.
