Jim Zimmerlin is a "serious amateur" photographer who shoots with a Canon Digital Rebel. For 15 years, Jim and his wife, Kellyn, bred American Cocker Spaniel puppies... so many of Jim's photos feature cute Cockers.
The Zims are also big on taking cruise vacations, so there have been many great photos of Carnival cruise ships over the years... and beautiful vacation destinations from the Pacific coast of Mexico to the Caribbean.
Jim's "real job" is at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant on the California coast... which has provided some fantastic photo opportunities over the years. You'd be surprised how nice a good photographer can make an industrial site look!
