About the Artist
Sedona Photographer Jim Peterson grew up in northwestern New Mexico, and lived on both coasts as well as in Illinois, Texas, Missouri, and many places in the West. He earned a B.A. in Music and a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Chicago, and first took up photography while in graduate school. His interest in it 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 to his lifelong artistic passion by starting a professional photography business, inspired by his lifelong love of the natural world.
More recently, Jim has embraced infrared photography to broaden his range of artistic expression, and has built a significant body of work in that medium. His works have won prizes and been nominated as finalists in numerous juried shows and international competitions.
