Photographer Jeff Goulden has combined his 50 year passion for photography and his love of the natural world, creating a portfolio that reveals nature in its pure and simple beauty. Growing up in the Puget Sound region of Washington State has given Jeff the opportunity to pursue hiking, canoeing, backpacking, mountain climbing and other outdoor adventures. His camera has always been an essential piece of equipment for every adventure. Photography is Jeff’s artistic medium with which to share his love of the outdoors.
Jeff retired as a software developer in 2010 and began a second career in writing, fine art and stock photography. He combines his passion for photography and his love of nature with the technical skills developed during his software career.
Jeff received his Bachelors in Business Administration and Information Science from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington.
Jeff’s portfolio is represented by two major stock agencies, Getty Images and Istockphoto. His work has appeared in National Geographic, Nature Conservancy, Bird Watchers Digest, Sierra Club, Discovery Channel, National Public Radio, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and numerous other national, regional and local publications.
