News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website!  We just returned from trips to Patagonia and the Swiss Alps, so I will be posting pictures from those adventures soon. I just offered my new coffee table book, "African Reflections" for sale here https://www.steveshamesphotos....

I live in the Sacramento metro area in California with the love of my life and travel partner, Lauri. Below are the trips we have planned for 2023 and beyond, so far.
