Shawn Reeder

I am a destination photographer & filmmaker who specializes in Yosemite & the Sierra Nevada.

I have spent the past fifteen years exploring and photographing the glories of Yosemite and the High Sierra. I've always loved the outdoors, and was blessed by winning a trip to Yosemite when I was 18. This trip changed my life as I knew I'd found my home, the Sierra Nevada; so majestically represented by one of it's grandest valleys.

This introduced me to "The Range of Light", a place that has captured my heart and provides a lifetime's worth of places to explore, photograph, and just be. I started spending summers in Tuolumne Meadows and have hiked, climbed, and basked in the glory of these mountains; finding a deep love for the High Sierra and all it's subtleties of light, mood, texture, and feeling.

I also finds incredible joy in capturing images of people, and their interaction with each other and their environment. I love trying to capture the moment as opposed to creating the moment. This allows each person´s uniqueness to truly come through. I love the moments when people have totally forgotten that I´m there, and I can capture them in their truest essence. Everyone has a beauty that is only theirs. I strive to capture this with my photography.

With these inspirations, I love to be able to share with others a vision of beauty, through photography & filmmaking, to inspire, and to realize, that we all have this beauty within.
