Silicon Valley Entrepreneur Switches Mac Monitor for Canon Lens To Unwind and Commune with Nature

San Jose, CA (PressExposure) October 04, 2007 -- San Jose, CA – immediate release – Stephen Oachs has a demanding and fast-paced professional life, but when he needs some “down time” he grabs a camera and hikes his way back to nature, and a renewed spirit. Since 2004, Oachs has been actively pursuing nature and wildlife photography as a pretty serious hobby, having captured some breathtaking and exceptional moments on film in places like the Sierra Nevadas, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Banff, Katmai Alaska National Park, Paris, France and Amsterdam.

Stephen began posting his first serious photos at several years ago, where he still maintains an active presence within that photo community. He has found many great tips and fellow photographers through PBase. However, being a skilled Web developer and programmer for many years, Stephen decided to build an online gallery of his photographic adventures, and showcase his favorite photographs, as well as share his experiences in a delightful and entertaining journal format. Though his site was originally for family and friends to enjoy, it all grew quickly into a larger proposition, as more people discovered his work and wanted to know more...and see more. Given that photography and nature are two things he’s very passionate about, he decided to start a blog for posting articles, how-tos and tips for other photo-enthusiasts, along with fun accounts of some of his shorter or more casual “expeditions,” such as those to the San Francisco Zoo.

As he began being approached more and more for permission to use his work and repeatedly asked when he will sell his photos, he decided to make a selected number of his most popular and requested photos available for sale, exclusively through his Website, He has posted more information about this newest endeavor on his blog at [].
