David Hibbard, a Menlo Park resident, is a fine-art landscape photographer. He traces his career back to age 7, when on a family vacation he attempted to record the magnificent Big Sur coast with a Brownie camera. Encouragement, first from Ansel Adams then later from Marion Patterson, helped David find his way as a photographic artist. He is represented by Modernbook Gallery in Palo Alto. He is the author of "Natural Gestures," published by Edition One Studios last year.
