About Guy Tal: Guy Tal is a photographic artist and author living and working primarily in the high desert region known as the Colorado Plateau. He is a regular contributor to magazines such as LensWork, On Landscape, and others. His books include More Than a Rock, and The Landscape Photographer’s Guide to Photoshop. Guy’s work is an extension of his experiences living and exploring in his beloved desert places. Although ostensibly a “landscape photographer,” Guy approaches photography as an expressive art meant to elicit emotions and to elevate the spirit, rather than to document appearances. Rather than a photographer who produces art, Guy considers himself an artist working in the medium of photography.

His relationship with—and photography of—California’s Deserts spans more than 30 years.
