Central Valley California landscape, nature, wildlife and inspirational pictures for sale from Merced, San Luis NWR, Yosemite & the Eastern Sierra Nevada.

Welcome to the website! My name is Mike Matenkosky and I’m a Central Valley California photographer specializing in fine art landscape, nature and wildlife photography. From the smallest bird to the largest mountain; I love it all, but my passion is Landscape Photography. I just love seeing what God has created!
I encourage you to spend some time browsing my online galleries and I hope you find that perfect photograph for your home or office. If you’re looking for something that you don’t see here, visit my nature photography blog. I post all of my new pictures here first, and some of those images never get posted to my online nature gallery. So I encourage you to subscribe to my blog with updates and new pictures via e-mail.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to help you!


Landscape and Nature
