I am Debra Ruby, a nature travel photographer. I wrote a book called, Moments in Time Captured Forever: You Don’t Need a Good Camera to Take Good Pictures. Through short stories, I share my personal experiences and lessons I learned while developing my skills as a photographer.
Whether it is the beauty of a rosebud or the strength in the posture of an ancient oak, animals of all shapes and sizes, domestic or exotic, delight my senses. My photographic journeys have taken me from the parks of Cleveland to the enchanting city of Seattle, Alaska’s brilliant skyline, to my flower-laden California landscape. I’ve also traveled to:
My visual and prosaic personas collided in Krakow, Poland as my camera seemed to catch mysterious stories behind the walls of the ornate old buildings along the stately, historic streets.
Whether you’re a novice or an expert, you’ll enjoy perusing my photos from around the world and reading the stories about when, where, and how they were taken. I also teach photography. I believe in taking the picture when you see it because any hesitation means that the moment is lost.
