The Flower Photographer of Silicon Valley

Glenn Thomas Franco Simmons is a professional floral photographer who was based in Silicon Valley for about 10 years but now lives in the Northern Nevada desert. As he was photographing roses, a frequent visitor to the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden saw him and said, "Oh, it's the flower photographer!" That moniker stuck, and Glenn added "of Silicon Valley." That's how he became The Flower Photographer of Silicon Valley.

While he loves flowers, Glenn also occasionally photographs landscapes, classic cars, old trains and planes, in addition to doing some graphic art. This site's purpose is to list Glenn's websites and social media accounts.

Glenn is in the process of updating all his commercial and free websites, some of which have few or no photos at this time. So check back, if you have a favorite platform (SmugMug, RedBubble, Society6, Zenofolio, 500px, etc.) from which you purchase photos from. And, the same goes for the free website platforms for free downloads.

With regard to social media, "current" is used because Instagram and Twitter removed access to multiple accounts of Glenn's that may still be visible on the web. He attempted to ask both why he lost access to his accounts, and neither replied. It's difficult to understand why some were removed, some no longer were accessible while still displaying on the web, and why there were no responses to Glenn's queries. After all, none of Glenn's sites feature or featured (in the case of those he no longer has access to) offensive material. They only feature landscape and flower photos, sometimes with inspirational quotes. But, you can't argue with Big Brother Tech.
