Thanks for visiting!

About me:

What do I do in real life? I am a biologist by training who now works as a Bioinformatics Scientists - meaning I program computers to study biology. Some of my programs for biology can be seen on my software website Algosome Software

Photography has been a hobby of mine for over a decade now. Be it having less time, preoccupied with other hobbies, finding new locations, or just less inspiration, I find I don't travel as much exclusively for photography. But that makes every trip I take that much more meaningful.

All of my photographs on flickr are © Copyright Greg Cope, All Rights Reserved. If you wish to use a photograph of mine, please contact me. More of my work can be seen on my photo webpage at Nature Focused

I don't comment on photos as much as I used to. Its not for a lack of good quality here and elsewhere. It is more to a lack of time and changing priorities, the result of which is that I'm not much of a social networker (and lets face it, photo sharing sites like flickr tend to be very social networking centric, which makes it difficult and time consuming to give and take beyond than that).

    "When Greg goes on a backpacking trip I get excited because I know he's going to come back with some freaking crazy awesome images of my favorite places! He points his camera at beautiful scenery, and I know the effort required to haul the photo equipment around the wilderness, up and down passes, and swatting mosquitoes between shots, ha! If I were a publisher needing a photographer to come back with some consistently great shots of a backpacking adventure, Greg would be up there at the top of my list. He's guaranteed to come back with breathtaking images. He has the talent, the passion, and the wilderness know-how to capture the most beautiful scenery in all kinds of conditions. But most of all I love that he explores the same areas as me and I am always eager (and impressed) to see how he captures the lakes, meadows, streams, and mountains of the High Sierra. I'm sure we'll take an adventure together sometime."

    "When I stumbled onto Greg's stream I stopped and settled in, knowing I'd be there for awhile; the first image I saw had that tell-tale look of someone that started out in film, carrying on the Rowell tradition of mastering the extreme contrasts of high alpine scenery. As for his collection, I don't have enough words. He's in that group that I always think of as 'photographers'...while I just screw around, hoping that something mediocre will come out better once processed and
    I'd fave most everything he has but would run out of room...I just added him as a contact instead so I can be inspired to try harder, and unfold the tripod, and make that extra trip down the coast, get up earlier...basically inspired to see just what photography can be. Check him out..."

    "Sorry in spanish.

    Es realmente un placer entrar a la galería de Greg y disfrutar de la naturaleza y los paisajes de la Sierra Nevada de California, en maravillosos lugares que invitan a montar el campamento y a recorrer estas montañas y sus parques.

    Felicitaciones por todas las fotos y no se arrepentirán de entrar a esta galería."

    "Greg is an exceptional landscape photographer and I always enjoy a casual stroll through his photostream. Flickr is such an amazing place with such exceptional talent - and Greg is one of those who makes it just that.

    Keep up the good work!

    "I'm happy to be the first person to provide a testimonial for Greg. His photostream is inspiring and of the highest quality, most notably in his work in the deepest wilderness of the High Sierra. He has brought back treasures for all of us during his journeys and has been kind enough to share that experience on Flickr. Be sure to take the time to enjoy it."
