Brenda Tharp has been photographing the natural world and the cultural world for over 30 years. Her colorful, graphic photographs of the world around are in private collections around the country. She has a keen eye for visual design and simple, strong compositions in much of her work. Her sensitive approach allows her to capture the essence of the people she meets when traveling. Brenda approaches each photograph she makes with a sense of awe and wonder, a celebration of what she is seeing. Her striking images have been used in ads, brochures, calendars, books and magazines by a wide range of clients, including: National Geographic Books, British Gas, Chronicle Books, Sierra Club Magazine, Sunset Magazine, Nature Conservancy, Audubon, The National Park Service, and Michelin Travel Publications.
