cataldo-bandarThis web site represents a culmination of my interests, focusing primarily on my most recent photography projects.

I have always enjoyed creating media, including photographs, stories, movies, drawings and documentaries. My 30-minute movie “Ray Bandar: A Life with Skulls,” was picked up by the Natural Heroes Series on PBS and shown at several film festivals throughout the country. If you’d like to purchase a copy, you can find it on the DVD web site.

My fascination with the natural history of mammals and birds and citizen science has also compelled me to work as a Winter Wildlife Docent at Point Reyes National Seashore, and as a volunteer at the Marine Mammal Center and the Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association. I am  also currently volunteering as a surveyor for the River Otter Ecology Project in the San Francisco Bay Area.
