Sedona photographer Jim Peterson grew up in northwestern New Mexico and has lived on both coasts as well as several other states. He attended the University of Chicago, receiving a BA in Music and a PhD in Biochemistry. He first took up photography while in graduate school, and his interest persisted while he worked as a research biochemist for five years and then moved on to a long career as an engineer, planner, and manager in the telecommunications industry.
Upon retirement, he redirected his energy into starting a professional photography business. His photography has been featured in numerous galleries and exhibits in Phoenix and Sedona.
Jim's work is inspired by a lifelong love of the natural world. In recent years, Jim has embraced digital infrared photography to broaden the range of his artistic expression, and he has built a significant body of work in that medium.
