My vision is to enhance what nature and our surroundings provide without taking away any of the wonder and majesty of our world. When working with people the goal is to also enhance the beauty and dignity already within each and every one of us.

After graduating from San Jose State University with a BS in photojournalism, I moved away from photographing events to more artistic and creative imaging. While my photographs retain their realism, I expand the colors and details that result in beautifully stunning views full of beauty and awe.

I use Canon equipment along with digital editing software such as Lightroom and Photoshop. I specialize in scenic landscapes and seascapes, living in one of the most beautiful areas in the world, as well as fashion portraiture, often combining the two.

"My wish is for you to view the images here and more deeply appreciate the spectacular beauty that nature has so freely given us. To inspire you to visit these places, as well as taking a moment to look around and give a deeper mind to what's near, is what I hope you find here." - Don

Don Hoekwater is an award-winning fine art landscape photographer located in the San Francisco Bay Area, one of the most scenic areas in the world. He takes full advantage of his location, photographing gorgeous coastlines, forests, and mountains, among the other gifts nature has bestowed upon this area.

Don's been photographing the world for over 30 years. After graduating with a degree in photojournalism from San Jose State University, he went into sports photography. He and a few friend started a magazine covering University of Michigan athletics, which allowed him to get on the field for several Rose Bowls and other top college events. He then became publisher of another magazine covering sports at his alma-mater.

But something was lacking, and a few years ago Don took the plunge into more creative and artistic aspects of photography, realizing the area in which he lived offered the opportunity to capture and share some of the most majestic and awe-inspiring views on Earth. Now he specializes in fine art landscapes, and once in a while takes on the challenge of fashion portraiture, often combining the two.
