Beauty of Cannabis is a visual journey into the spectacular marijuana strains being grown in the 21st Century. Award-winning photographer Spurs Broken takes us as deep as the lens will allow by directing light into the valleys between the leaves and through fissures full of crystal trichomes to reveal the beautiful strands, strings, and balls of earthly delight. Readers will learn to direct light inside each bud so it can reflect off the crystals to reveal beautiful colors and willdiscover the rewards of alternating the depth of field by a few microns to find the deep-orange pistils and the saturated brilliance that manifests from the contrast when a shot is done just right. Cannabis connoisseurs will delight in intimate views of what they’re smoking, as Spurs’ signature style of macro-photography reveals the makeup of each plant’s personality and characteristics of the individual strains in all their glory.

Robert R. Sanders (a.k.a. Spurs Broken) is a pioneer in the industry's journey from analog to digital. His work spans half a century, and he has won numerous awards in creative design, animation, and photography. He was nominated for an Emmy for Fire Mountain (a news documentary detailing the eruption of Mt. St. Helen and the Pacific Ring of Fire) and mentored thousands of aspiring artists through his photographic lighting workshops, lectures, and as an adjunct professor at the Academy of Art University-San Francisco. As a student of light, he continues to push the boundaries to discover new ways to express passion in each and every photo. As a successful commercial photographer, Robert's work is sometimes dramatic and clever, controversial, and humorous, but always intriguing and impacting. His passion and expertise have led him to develop a signature macro-photography style, through which he shares the beauty of the cannabis plant. Robert lives in Beaverton, OR.

I love Spurs Broken artwork so much that I use it in my published works. Got to love the way he sees and interprets cannabis. Jorge Cervantes, Author, Photographer.

Spurs Broken is at the top of my list as a premium photographer of cannabis, not only because of his vision, but also for his activism on the part of all medical cannabis patients before it was a “thing to do.” His macro-photography evokes images of the inner space of the flower and to the outer space of shiny resin stars against a cloudless dark night sky. ~ Ophelia Chong, Founder & Owner Stock Pot Images – The First Premium Stock Agency for Cannabis Photography
