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 living in a tent 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. Or say that their oil spill photographs were entered into evidence before the US Supreme Court.

Seattle photographer Natalie Fobes can. With three coffee table photography books published, a thriving portrait assignments, wedding, construction documentation and corporate events business she is one of the most diverse photographers in the country.

“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.”
