Not many photographers have faced winds of 90 knots and seas of 40 feet while on a fishing boat in the middle of the Bering Sea. Few can describe the bitter cold of a Siberian winter while camped out with Chukchi reindeer herders. Or say that their first client was National Geographic Magazine. Few others, if any, can claim to be a Pulitzer Prize finalist in a writing category.
Natalie Fobes can. With three coffee table photography books, a thriving assignment, wedding and stock business, she is one of the most diverse photographers in the country.
Natalie excels at capturing real people and real life whether it is for a magazine photo editor or a wedding couple. She knows that those moments of life are the ones that too infrequently go unrecorded. Each moment reflects a life. Each photo tells a story.

“Photographers are the eyes and conscience of society. Our photographs illuminate the dark corners of our cultural and environmental tapestry. These images record, for all time, the split second that the shutter remains open. Life in the present becomes history in the future.”
