Photographic adventures and assignments have taken him across the Brooks Range, the northernmost mountains in Alaska. He has photographed the World Trade Towers, hanging out of a small plane, followed in the footsteps of Seneca Ray Stoddard, a 19th-century photographer of the Adirondacks, and created human interest photo stories about the residents of Love Canal, an environmental disaster area.

Harold is well-known for his night photography and experimental ultra-long exposure techniques, use of vibrant, saturated colors in landscape compositions, and beautiful creative floral imagery. He is inspired by the flowers in his garden, hiking in the wilderness, and the work of great artists and photographers including Ansel Adams, M.C. Escher, Monet, van Gogh, and Edward Weston.

Harold frequently collaborates with his wife, Phyllis Davis, on book projects. They live in Berkeley, California with their four children.

    I like Harold’s books but this Q&A format doesn’t work for me. Too much hesitation and repetition.
