Welcome to Optimal Focus Photography!

My name is Beth Young and I am a Sacramento, California-based landscape photographer, architect, and cancer survivor passionate about capturing uplifting images of nature that endeavor to communicate the therapeutic effects of photography, both for the photographer and the viewer.

I specialize in creating nature images of healing, hope, and renewal for healthcare environments with an emphasis on wellness and the human experience; my work is featured in hospitals, clinics, cancer centers, psychiatric facilities and elder care communities throughout the west coast.

Additionally, I offer beautiful photographic prints for sale direct to you in a variety of mediums.

Thank you so much for taking the time to show interest in my photographic work, it is tremendously appreciated!

Did you know that Optimal Focus Photography can print large scale, wall size photos, some as big as 25 feet large?

These are just a few installations at Kaiser Permanente Modesto Medical Center and other hospitals and clinics in California featuring local imagery. More examples can be found here.
