About Your Instructor:
Angie Payne discovered her love of photography during her time spent exploring nature and traveling the world as a professional climber. Countless days spent in the mountains of Colorado and subsequent climbing expeditions to Greenland and French Polynesia opened Angie’s eyes to the true magnificence of nature and her desire to capture photos of it. Her early photographic pursuits involved an iPhone and inexpensive magnetic lenses. This simple setup was enough to ignite Angie’s interest in pursuing photography more seriously, and in 2012 she purchased her first digital camera. Her current work is mainly concentrated in the world of macro photography, as she is especially obsessed with the tiny worlds that exist within bigger landscapes. Angie currently lives in Boulder, Colorado.
