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 recent SanDisk Extreme Team Facebook 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 six bestselling books including "Photoshop CS5 for Nature Photographers; A Workshop in a Book" (Anon & Anon, Sybex, 2010) and "Aperture 3; Portable Genius" (Anon & Anon, Wiley, 2010) and is excited about their new, soon-to-be-released book, "See It; Photographic Composition Using Visual Intensity" (Anon & Anon, Focal Press, 2012). In addition, she writes for www.DPReview.com and has created several video training series on Aperture and Photoshop, as well as numerous articles and blogs on Aperture, Photoshop, and photography in general.
