Ellen Anon, based in Erie, PA, is an internationally recognized fine art and nature photographer, educator, and writer. She travels extensively to capture the drama and beauty of nature around the world. Whether hiking in remote areas of Asia, hanging out of a helicopter, or photographing close to home, she seeks to capture fleeting moments and beauty that are all too easy too miss in the rush of everyday life. She was thrilled to win the grand prize in the 2012 SanDisk Extreme Team contest, and has won numerous other awards in worldwide competitions including the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competitions, the Nature's Best Windland Smith Rice competitions, and the Inner Reflections calendar. She depends on the reliability of SanDisk cards when faced with the extreme environmental conditions she often encounters.
Ellen is the co-author of nine bestselling books including the highly acclaimed, "See It; Photographic Composition Using Visual Intensity" (Anon & Anon, Focal Press, 2012), "Photoshop CS5 for Nature Photographers; A Workshop in a Book" (Anon & Anon, Sybex, 2010) and "Aperture 3; Portable Genius" (Anon & Anon, Wiley, 2010). In addition, she has created several video training series on Aperture and Photoshop, as well as numerous articles and blogs on Aperture, Photoshop, and photography in general. Her work is represented by the Danita Delimont Stock Photography Agency and Ethos Contemporary Art Gallery. She is a member of NANPA and is honored to be a member of the SanDisk Extreme Team and to be sponsored by Paramo Clothing.
