Welcome to IMAGES BY ANN COLLINS!


I like to think of myself as a versatile photographer, but beautiful landscapes, seascapes, and nature scenes are what draw my eye. I shoot in color and later convert some photos to black and white in my computer. The coast of La Jolla, California, is where I’m most often found with my camera and tripod. As a native of La Jolla and a writer, I wanted to share the community's interesting history and scenic beauty in a coffee table photo book accompanied by in-depth captions. La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea is being released from Sunbelt Publications in October 2018 ($24.95 hardcover). My book features historical landmarks, notable La Jollans, annual events, marine life, educational institutions, recreational opportunities, and, of course, the beaches and ocean. La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea can be purchased at bookstores, including Warwick's in La Jolla and Amazon.com.

I hope you enjoy perusing my online galleries. You can click on an image to enlarge it. To close it, click on the X. To move through the enlarged images, use the right or left arrow keys on your keyboard. An enlarged image displays a caption with the photo’s title or description. The I.D. number of the image is in parentheses. If you are interested in purchasing a print, most of my images are available at Great American Art. Their site displays more of my photos than can be seen on my website, so I hope you will visit them and do a search for my name and whatever location you may be interested in.

If you have any questions, please send me a note via my Contact Ann page. Have a wonderful day!

Fun News From Ann

Lots of things have been happening this year--2018. My coffee table photo book, La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea, is coming out in October from Sunbelt Publications. Earlier in the year, I was very honored to have been selected as a featured artist by Art.com during Women's History Month. Click here to watch the video. In January, I traveled again to the wilds of the Canadian Rockies. I just can't get enough of the winter beauty there. One of my Canadian Rockies images taken in 2017 will be in the 2019 Sierra Club Engagement Calendar.

Where has 2017 gone? The year zipped by. I enjoyed a fantastic and very cold winter photography trip to the Canadian Rockies. Late fall found me in Arizona and Utah. In the meantime, the 2018 Sierra Club Calendars went on sale at the Sierra Club online store and book retailers. My winter dawn image of Bryce Canyon is in the wall calendar, and a Great Smoky Mountains Little Pigeon River image is in the engagement calendar. I am always honored to have my work published in such prestigious and beautiful calendars.

The end of July 2016 was a busy time for me. I made two presentations to local camera clubs. The Photo Naturalists Camera Club heard me speak about Photography on the Road: Adventures, Workshops, and Lessons Learned. The North County Photographic Society in Encinitas, CA, learned about The Digital Darkroom: Tips and Tricks.

My work is making its way out into the world. Framed prints, metal prints, canvas prints, and acrylic face-mounted prints of my photography can now be purchased from Great American Art. To view all of my available images, go to their website by clicking on the above link and putting my name--Ann Collins--in their search field. If you’re looking for photos I’ve shot at a specific location, such as La Jolla, add the location to the search field as well.

Selected images of mine are now available for licensing from Danita Delimont Stock Photography. Again, to see my images, put my name in the search field.

I’m also very happy to announce that I will have two photos in the 2017 Sierra Club Calendars. What a thrill!

Several of my local images have graced the covers of La Jolla: About Town and Solana Beach: About Town magazines. Another will be coming soon in fall 2016.

My black-and-white image, Mojave Desert Rainstorm, was juried into the 2014 Best of Nature Photography Show in the Ordover Gallery of the San Diego Natural History Museum, which was a real honor.
