Welcome!

I specialize in the artistic genre known as “nature spirit photography.” Before the camera, people could only draw or describe the nature beings with whom they interact. I began my own personal photographic journey in 2003 when a gnome invited me to come photograph a moss fairy village.

My award-winning photos are perfect additions to your conscious home and office decor. Each large image is a numbered, autographed and individually printed art piece. Free shipping in the USA and Canada! 20% Off our popular Guardian of Sheldon Church image, now through July 5!

I’ve arranged over 600 photographs by subject type, often with detailed descriptions. Stories and in-depth explanations are found in the library and in the three books I’ve written on this subject. Scroll down for ways to join us on social media…

Nature’s Support in Times of Sorrow

We sometimes forget how closely integrated we are with nature. We are reciprocal parts of the one puzzle. This interconnection is very clear at the historic Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston, South Carolina where the ancient trees empathize and comfort those who mourn...

This image-filled maple tree stands protectively between an old serpentine homestead and what was, long ago, virgin forest. On one side is a horned being...on another a protective bear spirit. Generations carved their initials in the soft serpentine stone of their home. Read more at atalatoy.com/blog/2022/07/spirits-at-serpentine-home/ ... See MoreSee Less

The great tree has a vine growing on it - I know vines slowly suffocate/strangle trees. Didn’t the tree want the vine torn down?

Death is a happy part of life, these stone beings are telling us...the large stone is smiling while his left spirit eye is occupied by a smiling monster who is pulling into his mouth a clearly-veined stone leaf that at its base has broken apart. It mirrors the leaves at the bottom of the photo who are being eaten to death by insects. #atalatoy #naturespiritphotography #naturebeingsphotography #animism #sentientbeings #ataladorothytoy #happyspirits #rockspirit ...
