Out of Chicago Instructor
Jennifer is a full-time nature photographer from Colorado that travels the American West photographing, exploring and teaching photography workshops. While she enjoys photographing landscapes, her real passion is focusing on the smaller details in those landscapes. She strives to make compelling photos to trigger emotions and feelings, but more importantly, to help bring awareness so we can conserve the inspiring and delicate natural world we live in. She believes there are stories within the landscape, and she enjoys storytelling with her imagery by capturing the ephemeral moments of the natural world with her lens.
Along with professional photographer David Kingham, she travels full-time in a travel trailer with their two cats teaching photography year-round in some of nature's most beautiful classrooms. She enjoys teaching her students how to express themselves through their imagery and how to connect with their subjects from behind the lens. Together, they own and run the Nature Photographer's Network, which is an active community of nature photographers sharing education, forums, and camaraderie.
Jennifer is also contributor and writer for the Slow Photography Movement website, a staff writer for Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography and a contributor for National Geographic's @natgetyourshot account.
