Welcome! I'm a wildlife and nature photographer who has been keeping a blog, Orca Watcher, since 2009. I also wanted a website that features some of my favorite photos in galleries, and hence this Zenfolio site was born in 2011. Here you can view and order some of my all-time best pictures, including images of killer whales, birds, baby foxes, and other elements of nature. After growing up in Portland, Oregon, I am currently based in Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands, Washington, so most of my work has a distinct Pacific Northwest theme.

What an awesome opportunity to live in this beautiful area. I had the privilege to visit some very dear friends on Camano Island a year ago. We visited Friday Harbor and ever since, I've dreamed about relocating to that area or spending a month or two on one of the Islands. Unfortunately, the Orcas did not cooperate and show themselves anywhere for us!!! We did get some good Eagle sightings though.

Later that year, we cruised to Alaska and didn't get any good whale sightings there either, only fins now and again.

I am an artist and have done quite a few seascapes, living not too far from the Oregon coast, and a few Orcas from photographs.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful work. Love all the animals.

Your orca photos are just stunning!! I've adopted an orca from K pod and I am thrilled about it. You are so lucky to live where you do & see the wild orcas first-hand. Someday I hope I can see them, too. You are very talented!!!

Monika, your photos are amazing! Amazing! I can't imagine how many hours of sitting and waiting it took to get all these shots. You must have a fast eye and a very fast lens! Most impressive work.
