San Joaquin River National Wildlife Refuge
I've been a published journalist in Sacramento for decades, with the ability to weave photography and storytelling into a complete narrative package. My published stories appear regularly in numerous publications, including Comstock's Magazine, Sacramento Press, and Capitol Weekly. I'm a retired state and federal government public affairs specialist and my photographs have recently appeared in the print editions of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and San Francisco Chronicle, among others. I'm also the author of the one-of-a-kind news clips-based web page Martarano Archives, featuring my 1980s work as a staff writer at the long-gone Sacramento Union newspaper.
