New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website! We just got back from our 8th trip to Africa, so I will posting pictures from that trip soon.

I live in the Sacramento metro area in California with my wife and travel partner, Lauri. Below are the trips we have planned for 2024 and beyond, so far.
