About the Author:

Ian Adams is an environmental photographer specializing in natural, rural, historic, and garden photography. In 2003 the U.S. Postal Service selected one of Ian's rural Ohio photographs as the image for an Ohio Bicentennial postage stamp. Ian has conducted more than 100 nature and garden photography seminars and workshops throughout the United States at such places as the Cleveland Botanical Garden, Longwood Gardens, the Holden Arboretum, the Garden Writers Association, Phipps Conservatory, and the Perennial Plant Association. A convert from film to digital photography, Ian teaches the advantages and limitations of digital cameras versus film cameras, as well as hints on using a personal computer to fine-tune digital garden photographs for various uses. Ian feels that America's natural, rural, and historical heritage is fragile, and he hopes photographs can serve as a legacy to create a better awareness of these irreplaceable resources for future generations.
