Marlin Harms became interested in nature–especially birds, wildflowers and intertidal life–and found that a camera was a great way to explore and learn, primarily with macro or telephoto lens. He started in photography many years ago and had his own black-and-white darkroom. Marlin is Member of the Morro Coast Audubon Society, California Native Plant Society and other nature-based organizations.
