About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. That’s sure nice, Bo! The color is wonderful!

    • Bo Mackison says:

      Colors have been particularly vibrant this year, or maybe I am just looking at things with closer attention!

  2. Must be a beautiful garden. This is exquisite!!

    • Bo Mackison says:

      Considering the gardens are a relatively tiny 2.5 acres, there is a lot to see and photograph.

    Lighting is an amazing thing, Gandalf.

  5. Very pretty. The lovely yellow color makes such a delightful composition.
