The Four Corners region of the Colorado Plateau is comprised
of some of the world's most spectacular landscapes. This also
happens to be the place that photographer Branson Reynolds is fortunate
to call home.
Branson has a background in the fields of zoology and
archeology. He turned his passion for photography into his profession,
and we are thankful for that. His work has appeared in numerous
publications including Sierra, The New York Times, Outdoors,
Time/Life Books, WildLife Conservation, and many others. Among
The Aspen, published by Northland Press, features his photographs
along with the writing of naturalist David Peterson and his book, One
Drive in a Million, published by Desert Dolphin Press, is a guide
to the San Juan Skyway of Southwest Colorado.
For those of you who are interested in photography and/or the
American West, Branson offers a series of photography workshops through
out the year. He promises to take you to the best places to witness the
magic of the western light as it illuminates the land. In addition to
photography, you'll also learn about the area's natural and cultural
history. "The goal", as Branson notes, "is to return with a deeper
understanding of the land, with some of the most outstanding
photographs you have ever taken, and to experience an adventure and
have some fun in the process."
