Evan B. Siegel was born in New York City, and always had a love for the natural world. He embarked on the parallel tracks of learning photography and capturing images, along with his formal education in the sciences.
He continues to work in his chosen biomedical field while studying photography from a number of the masters of portraiture, fine art and nature, and shooting wherever and whenever he can, worldwide.
Photography is becoming more and more his concentration of interest and creative outlet. He opened his business, Coastal Images, in 1996.
