Panorama of the Mattole River Outlet on the Lost Caost

Welcome to the world as I see it, always looking good. Shop local for Christmas!

I have a new gallery full of work that is currently hanging on my walls and ready for immediate shipping. The items in this gallery are discounted 30-50% and more! 

Take a second and visit my In Stock - On Sale gallery, maybe you will find that perfect gift for a special someone!

I have a variety of photographs and tutorial materials here. My prints are available on smooth art paper, gallery wrapped canvas or as image panels.

For the past few years I have been making stitched panoramic images. This technique leads to high resolution digital originals that I can enlarge to be 4-6 foot prints with superlative sharpness and color. I am currently printing on a 44" 12 color Canon 8300 large format printer.

Above is the Mattole River where it crosses the beach near Petrolia in the sunset from my Lost Coast Gallery.

I have recently put up a gallery of Vertoramas. This is what I have been calling vertical panoramas.

The beauty of this format is that you can find many places in your home to hang a narrow vertical image while there are fewer places to hang a 4 foot horizontal.

To the right is a painterized version of "Moon rise over Green Lake" in the Hoover Wilderness from this summer in the North Eastern Sierra.

Have a look at my work and help yourself to some free desktops. If you can afford to buy a print please do as the proceeds allow me to spend the time to create more great pictures!!!!





What People are Saying about My Work...
Here are over a hundred comments from my e-bay auctions :)
 
The E-Bay feedback system really gives you a slice of life. I managed well except for one non-paying bidder that went a little over the edge.

Other then that everyone was very pleased with the quality and delivery of my work.

I will start doing some auctions again in the the fall for 4' and 6' pieces.

Camerawork for Film and Digital Photographers
This blog has video tutorials on a variety of photographic topics.
 
In Camerawork I discuss photographic topics that are not related to photoshop. I cover a wide variety of topics from camera technique through print spotting, finishing and presentation.

I have revised my popular “Stretching Canvas Ink Jet prints” to be more detailed with new and improved illustrations and a video demonstration.

This blog is also in a video format to make it a little less dry and hopefully make the material fun and easier to learn.

Ralph Cooksey-Talbott Thomas has been working as a photographer since 1972 when he moved to California from Michigan. During the 1970’s he studied under Ansel Adams in Yosemite. Ansel published one of his photographs in the portfolio section of his book "Polaroid Land Photography" Ansel and Orah Moore, another of Ansel’s students, suggested that he shorten his name to Cooksey-Talbott, and that is the name he has worked under since. Cooksey also studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and the San Francisco Academy of Art. He has lectured in photography at the U.C. Berkeley Extension, Studio One in Oakland and Santa Barbara City College. Cooksey is currently working as a new media artist and facilitating a photographic education and street level art outreach program through the Fremont Art Association in Fremont California.
