Tina Wright is a diverse photographer whose talents bridge a wide range of applications. From photojournalism to fashion to fine art, she enjoys them all. Her true passion though, lies in the fields of natural history and travel photography. In this she has found a purpose - to document the wildlife, natural habitats, and indigenous peoples of the places she encounters, in the pursuit of drawing attention to their need for preservation through her though-provoking and often artistic imagery.
She began photography in her early teens as a hobby and an extension to her natural abilities as an artist and painter. She went on to be schooled in the field of Photographic Technologies at the esteemed Southeast Center for Photographic Studies in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Through her extensive travels to East Africa, she now owns and operates a touring company under the name of Sopon Safaris where she leads and teaches photographic workshops during the summer and fall. She spends the remainder of the year processing and cataloging slides, and preparing articles with supporting images for submissions. Some of her credits include publications in magazines such as American Photo, Nature Photographer, WildBird, Photo Life, Photographer's Forum, PhotoWorld, and Florida Wildlife, as well as a travel assignment to Puerto Rico for Popular Photography.
