You don't take a photograph, you make it.
– Ansel Adams
Photographers use the tools of their trade combined with strong artistic vision to present their unique perspective of the world whether they're taking portraits, documenting special events, or capturing the essence of Larimer County's amazing natural resources. A photograph conveys, in a way no words can, a sense of the mystery and beauty of life, nature, and the achievements of mankind.
Your images can help tell the story of Larimer County's parks and open spaces. Selected photographs are used in annual reports, calendars, promotional materials, website, slide shows, and where a thousand words get boiled down to a single picture! Be a parks and open spaces photographer.
