Award-winning photographer and scientist, Franka M. Gabler, developed a fascination, admiration, and respect for nature early in her lifetime. Soon after moving to California in 1997, she experienced her first wilderness backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Ever since that time, she has been photographing the magnificence of the high-country mountains and the California landscape. Her photographs are evocative - the light and atmosphere evident in her photographs often result in sentimental impact and ethereal feeling. She strives to capture the mood and the essence of the place she photographs.
Franka’s photographs have been recognized internationally, including the 2022 Landscape Photography World Awards (overall winner) and the 2021 First Place award for the ‘Intimate and Abstract’ Natural Landscape Photography Awards category. Her photographs are published in several books and she has been featured in several photography magazines. Franka has been invited to speak at several photography conferences.
Her work has been featured in numerous exhibits and is represented in private collections throughout the United States and abroad.
We discuss the advantages of spending time at a location to gain familiarity, the enjoyment of her experiences in nature and how her early experiences in the High Sierra have shaped her portfolio along with a lot more!
I hope you enjoy the show!
