Olof Carmel -
Olof is an award winning photographer whose coveted open and limited edition fine art prints have been among California's best selling for over 10 years. He began his photo career in a prominent S.F. Bay Area custom B&W lab in 1981. During the 1980's and 90's he worked, explored and photographed as a Backcountry Ranger with the National Park Service in Yosemite, Denali, Glacier, Mt Rainier and Rocky Mountain National Parks including a seven-year residence in Yosemite Valley with the National Park Service and Yosemite Mountaineering School. His images have received numerous awards and regularly grace the covers of magazines, with one curator stating "Mr. Carmel creates sublime images of nature's beauty. He is a master at capturing subtle light that illuminates the landscape with delicacy and grace" (San Diego Natural History Museum show). A long time licensed design / building contractor, Olof is the primary designer and builder of both the Carmel’s Truckee Gallery (2007-2009) and Calistoga Gallery (2011-2013). Olof's undergraduate education was completed at the Stockholm School of Economics and his graduate work was done at UC Berkeley in California. He has an art background in watercolor and charcoal drawing, an influence that can be seen in some of his images.
