Nature Consortium May Artist Machel Spence


I have been photographing nature and other wild things for 20 years. My background includes a master’s in Zoology which I have used to teach for several years in and around Seattle doing programs at schools and the Seattle Aquarium. I am currently obsessed with photographing fungi and slime mold in the local parks around West Seattle. I also venture up to the Northern Cascades and Mt. Rainier in search of different species of fungi that have symbiotic relationships with particular trees. I have lived in West Seattle for 13 years now and have shown my mushroom photography at several places in the junction and Alki Arts on Alki, I also just made the cover of Fungi Magazine and am being reviewed by National Geographic for a possible article as well.
