The world through my eyes …” ~Ruby Pacheco

Welcome to my site. I’m a Nature Photographer from Northern California.

While growing up on my family’s large Central California ranch, I developed an eye for nature. As a Nature Photographer, I capture spectacular landscapes and waterscapes, that bring me back to that childhood love for nature. It heals me daily.

While I digitally enhance my photographs, it’s important to me that I keep the image as close to what I observed at the time.

I’m often told by clients that my photographs evoke strong emotions in them. They get to see the world through my eyes, while the images trigger their own familiar memories. I love offering that to my clients.

Please enjoy looking around. Thank you for your support of my work!

You’re a gem,
