Ann is a nature and wildlife photographer and has been capturing images in the Rocky Mountains for over twenty years. She attended the Southeastern Center for the Photographic Arts in Atlanta, Georgia, studying with Neil Chaput de Saintonge. Originally a landscape artist, she branched out into photography and it has been her primary passion ever since.
Ann uses Nikon D200, 300 and 700 series digital cameras. Her lenses range from 17-35mm to 200-400mm, and she combines her cameras with Gitzo tripods and Arca Swiss and full Wimberley heads.
Ann's motivation for photography is her desire to share her love for the natural landscape and wildlife with others. She especially has a deep appreciation for the beautiful and diverse landscapes and wildlife the West has to offer.
