Named in 2017 as one of the Top 100 Most Influential Adventure Photographers in the world, Christin Healey is a self-taught landscape and wilderness photographer who grew up in the Florida Keys and splits her time living in Charlottesville, Virginia and Boulder, Colorado with her husband, two dogs and a cat.
The focus of her photography is to capture the true essence of earth’s awe-inspiring beauty, from its backyard wonders to its wild, remote outposts. From the serene to the dramatic, Christin works to incorporate elements of light, shadows, and natural contours into each landscape. Some of her favorite places to shoot include Iceland, Patagonia, the Canadian and American Rockies, and the Pacific Northwest.
“From an early age I have been drawn to the outdoors and exploring all the wonders of this great planet. For me, photography is a way to share my love of nature and fuel my passion for all things creative. Every sunset…every falling leaf…every angle in which light hits the water…is unique, every second of every day. The opportunity to capture these moments and share them with others; to transport someone to a special place, even if just for a moment – is both incredibly gratifying and deeply humbling. I’m on a never-ending quest to explore, create, and inspire. I take inspiration from the words of Pablo Neruda: He who does not travel, who does not read, who does not listen to music, who does not find grace in himself, who does not find grace in herself, dies slowly.“
