"My Studio"

Karen Bannon

As a passionate and dedicated artist and photographer specializing in birds, my mission is to capture the beauty and majesty of the natural world through my lens. Through my photography, I strive to inspire others to appreciate and protect the environment, and to encourage a deeper understanding and connection with the creatures that inhabit it.

As an award-winning nature and animal photographer, I am committed to excellence in my craft, constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible with my camera and my creativity. I am deeply grateful for the privilege of being able to spend my life doing what I love, and I am dedicated to using my skills and passion to make a positive difference in the world.

God has sustained me. 

"He blessed me with this wonderful talent and gifted me peace in doing it. What more could a person ever ask for! All glory goes to God!"

– Karen Bannon
