Bruce Finocchio/Dream Catcher Images
Through Dream Catcher images, I create nature, bird, and wildlife images that sing with beauty, and capture the sacredness of life.
Restore your life’s essence, experience a child-like wonderment, and reconnect your spirit with our mother earth. My mission, as the owner of Dream Catcher Images, is to create beautiful photographs that hauntingly sing to one’s heart of the earth and its magnificent wildlife. Through this imagery, a sense of awe about the sacredness of life is shared and communicated to the image viewer or a workshop participant.
My vision is to open a doorway and to share the magical wonder of nature with others, so everyone can connect, see, and feel these powerful and sacred moments.
Come and follow me, I will help you become a better nature photographer, and help you connect to the natural world. Through my empathic connection and awareness, you’ll leave with a sense of harmony and oneness, and with feelings of inner calm and peace.
“I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot pictures of birds at the Rookery in Santa Rosa with Bruce. Aside from Bruce being astute with a camera, he has a sixth sense too, in that he seems to know what a bird or animal is going to do BEFORE they do it. Having this ability allowed us all to take jaw-dropping photos! Though the rookery is nestled in a busy neighborhood, the connection to nature was evident not only in the photos we took but in the relaxing and grounded time we had together.” – Deb Breton
“Thanks for all your help! I really appreciate your willingness to help new photography students. The Ranch is a very special place that was wonderful to visit.” – Linda Rutherford
“Bruce, your photography continues to fill my soul! You capture the heart of nature.” – Nancy Wold
