Cheyenne is a self-taught photographer and has been shooting professionally since 1989. From ’89 – ’03 she shot adventure sports and health & fitness stock photographs that have been published worldwide in ad campaigns, magazines and books. Her impressive list of clients includes: Sunset Magazine, Subaru Drive Magazine, Outdoor Research Gear, Tamron USA, U.S. Postal Service, Backroads Tours, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Outside Magazine, and the list goes on. Cheyenne is also a published author, having written several books, many photo/text pieces and monthly columns for national magazines. In 2003, Cheyenne hung up her mountain climbing boots and film camera for a much needed break. She soon found that she missed not only having a camera in her hand but she also missed the creative process. She wasn't interested in getting back into the editorial segment of the business again and knew that her calling this time would come in a different form. In 2008, Cheyenne picked up her camera again, this time digital; her creative sparks reignited fresh, new and bold! A proven master of technique, she's taking Digital Fine Art Photography into exciting, powerful and new directions. With her unique vision, she captures the subtle moods, the textures, and maybe the ghosts that live on somehow in the rusted, abandoned artifacts of the Southwest. Using the whispers of light, color and form, she asks the majestic landscapes and relics of the region to tell us their stories once again. Photographing the Legend, the Lore and the Landscapes of the Great American Southwest, Cheyenne is passionate about what she feels so fortunate to do for a living. As a sponsored HDR Specialist for Photomatix Software, Cheyenne conducts Photomatix HDR training classes both online and privately to individuals. As the former owner of Ancient Light Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona Cheyenne now travels and holds Photo Workshops, HDR Classes and Tours throughout the Southwest. She also shows and sells her Fine Art Photography at Art Shows throughout the Western US. Cheyenne was raised in Miami, FL and has lived in San Diego, CA and Park City, UT and now makes her home in Scottsdale, Arizona.
