Krista Rossow

National Geographic Photographer

Krista Rossow is a freelance photographer and educator based near Eugene, Oregon. Her specialty of travel photography has allowed her to travel the globe photographing everything from people and cultures to wildlife and landscapes. She sees the camera as a tool for understanding new cultures, meeting the locals, and exploring the natural world. She shoots nationally and internationally for travel publications such as National Geographic Traveler. Her latest assignments had her bumping down potholed dirt roads exploring a surfer’s paradise in Costa Rica and visiting a Zulu farm in the stunning countryside near Durban, South Africa.

She has seven years experience as a photo editor for National Geographic Traveler magazine in Washington, DC, where she helped shape stories from the work of world-class photographers. While sifting through thousands of photos, she was able to explore the art deco facades of Casablanca, learn to cook on the Amalfi Coast, and herd vicuna in the highlands of Peru, all without leaving her desk.

Krista is also a passionate and patient instructor. She has taught photography in private workshops in Sun Valley, Idaho, and for National Geographic in Washington, D.C., New Orleans, and the Galápagos Islands. Her technical aptitude combined with her eye for storytelling push students to new levels in their own photography.
