I want to take you to places you have never been and will probably never go. I want to take you to out of the way places that took me 3000 miles of
driving, hundreds of words, and thousands of images to document.
I want to describe and show you what it is like to stand on the middle of the small bridge spanning the San Lorenzo Creek. The only sounds will be the shallow crystal-clear creek flowing over the moss-colored
I want you to feel the heat of Monterey County’s summer, learn about its
communites, see the produce of the Salinas Valley and long for lunch in Parkfield.

What on Earth is a "Dalmdad" and why should I buy my landscape photography from one? Steve, your photographer, is Dalmdad. Dalm, of course, is short for Dalmatian and Lucy is our Dalm. Lucy's profile is our business logo. Dalm has been taking pictures for over 30 years and took roughly 6000 frames in 2006. He also drove almost 1500 local miles throughout central California in search of the photos we bring to you. For most of those years, Dalm relied on a Minolta Maxxum slr, Kodak film, and the local Photomat. Times have changed. After a head-to-head challenge between film and digital during our 2001 trip to Alaska, the film camera was packed away and never used again. Today Dalm relies on a Nikon d70s dslr, Compact Flash, and Adobe Photoshop CS3. In the short time since going pro, Dalm has had requests to use his images for textbooks, print magazines, travel signs, and two issues of Shmap.
