Joanne West Photography

I am primarily a nature photographer, living on 4 acres of Sonoran desert land in an underground dome home in Gold Canyon, Arizona. Here I have captured the moods of light playing off the nearby Supersition Mountains in all seasons. Dark desert skies are perfect for capturing moonrises, star trails and lightning images. My images of nature, particularly wildflowers, birds, animals and landscape are published, exhibited and collected in the US, Canada and UK. In addition to 30 yrs of photographing the beauty of the western USA, international travel to Peru, Australia, Italy and Canada has added diversity to my portfolio. I am hired to photograph people for weddings and personalized headshots as well cover corporate and personal events.
