The Photography of
Todd Pickering has been photographing the natural world for four decades. His lifelong love for outdoor adventure has fueled his desire to share the beauty he experiences in the wild. His personal and commercial work has been featured in magazines, galleries and collections nationwide. He also runs his own small gallery in Point Reyes California. For the past ten years he has been the photographer for the prestigious Opus One winery in Napa, California.
Todd is a San Francisco Art Institute graduate, which helped foster a deeper understanding of the creative process. ”I love sharing my enthusiasm and strategies for the process of making art as much as the final outcome. I get the most excitement out of watching others realize their own photographic vision.”
For the past thirty years Todd’s place of interest has been the Point Reyes National Seashore. “There is a subtle palette in the forests and pasture, where lands meet the sea. It is a finite piece of land with infinite photographic possibilities. I practice a multi-prong approach to photographing the natural landscape using details, abstraction and the ‘grand classical view’ as tools to discuss the complex ideas contained in nature.”

Our Mercantile is part boutique, part art gallery. Step inside to find stunning color photography, paintings, sculptures, and jewelry. We highly recommend the stunning photography of the immensely talented Big Sur artist Kodiak Greenwood that hangs on our walls alongside that of iconic photographer Ansel Adams.
