About Charlotte Gibb
Charlotte Gibb is a Northern California-based fine art photographer specializing in Intimate Landscapes of the Western United States.
The youngest of nine, she spent her early life playing and exploring the rural Northern California mountain area of her childhood home. Her father, an avid mountain climber and nature lover, made sure his kids shared his passion for the outdoors. After his death in a climbing accident, her mother continued to encourage an attachment to nature, ensuring that family vacations were spent outdoors camping, hiking, and exploring.
Charlotte earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She began her career in the advertising business as an art director in the 1990s, then operated her own graphic design firm for 15 years before selling the business and immersing into the craft of photography. Her traditional darkroom has since been replaced with digital darkroom tools, and her style has moved from a journalistic approach to one that pays tribute to the natural world.
Frequently symbolic, and with an eye towards the subtle and sometimes overlooked elements of nature, her photographs are not meant to be pretty postcards, but rather frames that celebrate nature’s form, line, shape, color, and texture. Again and again, she returns to both well-known and secret places to observe the changes brought about by the seasons, light, and weather. Everything she knows about the technology of modern photography combines with her artistic aesthetic to create images that show the natural world differently. Charlotte writes and publishes on the subject of photography and creativity, keynotes for many photography events, serves as judge for several photography competitions, and exhibits her work throughout California. She can usually be found tromping with her camera bag in the wilderness areas around the Sierra Nevada range and Yosemite National Park in her home state.
