Stephen Fischer is an outdoor photographer specializing in landscape and wildlife imagery, covering many areas of the American West. To capture more unique results, he enjoys the challenge of exploring out-of-the-way or less convenient locations, and at all times of the year. Based out of Sacramento California, some of his work has centered around the natural habitat of the area, while also trying to give others a better appreciation of its beauty.
Savannahs of predominately blue oaks dispersed over bucolic grasslands on gently rolling hills, these lands reflect the state of the California foothills closer to its native form. Providing a quiet solitude and an oasis for wildlife, while isolated from the hustle and bustle of encroaching suburban sprawl, the oak savannahs in California are disappearing at an increasing rate.
Stephen Fischer's exhibit of black-and-white photographs provides a documentation of these lands south of 50 in their undisturbed form as captured ahead of their destruction over the past decade.
