San Diego Beautiful

Photography of America's Finest City by Stephen Bay

I am a travel and landscape photographer living in San Diego. I moved to this city in late 2015, but I have lived in California for nearly 20 years. I was born in Canada and came to the U.S. for graduate school in Computer Science. I then met my wife, adopted a dog, and permanently settled in this great state. I am now happily a US citizen.

My passion for photography comes from my love of traveling and exploring new places. Initially, my photography focused on urban scenes as I have always found it enjoyable to go to a new city and just walk around exploring with no destination in mind. I also enjoy camping and hiking, and this interest combined with California's spectacular natural beauty brought me into landscape photography.

I hope you enjoy my images. Please feel free to browse and share this website with your friends.
