I started this blogsite what now feels like eons ago, to practice my writing skills, show off my photo skills, and market myself and my photography website. Ultimately, I have discovered other wonderful images and writing on this site.
I’m a Montana girl. I was born about 24 miles outside the western entrance to Glacier National Park. Over the years, I have migrated from Montana to Kentucky to Louisiana to Washington State to Idaho back to Montana and now down here to Texas. I’m now in the process of moving back to Washington State, where I intend to keep put.
My father was a photographer. He used his Mamiya twin lens camera to take awesome black & whites of the Montana landscape. I inherited my love of the medium from him, and began my photography career in earnest with a Pentax SLR purchased while still in high school. I bought my first digital camera (a HP 2MP point-and-shoot) back in 1998. After that, I never looked back to film.
Through the years since 1998, I’ve used both Nikon and Canon digital cameras. My current cameras are all Canons except for my medium format Pentax 645z. In addition to being a mountain gal, I’m also a full-frame gal. If you are interested, I have a photo website , and a Facebook photography page, in addition to this blog site. And, since 2012, I am a contributing writer and photographer to the National Parks Traveler website, where I write a monthly “Photography in the National Parks” column, as well as a series of “Armchair Photography Guides” and 3-day itineraries to national parks I’ve visited. Type “Rebecca Latson Photography” or “Photography In The National Parks” in the search field and that should pull many of the articles I’ve thus far written.
In my past life, I was also the staff photographer for The Merchant Prince, a vendor out at the Texas Renaissance Festival. I’ve photographed landscapes, portraits, weddings, families and other events, including a couple of Colombian dance troupes and and portfolios for an aspiring fashion model and a belly dancer.
I’ve done some traveling to such locations as London, Paris, Ireland, western Canada, Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Arizona, Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Montana, California, Kentucky and Texas. Up to this point, 2018 has seen me hiking and photographing through Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in January, Zion National Park in February, and Bryce Canyon National Park in April. My Big Road Trip up to Washington State will be populated with a few national park / national monument stops, as well.
