I am a nature and landscape photographer who sometimes ventures into other areas of photography, such as I did for my coffee table book, La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea. My book features history, historical landmarks, notable La Jollans, annual events, marine life, educational institutions, recreational opportunities, and, of course, the beaches and ocean (my favorite kinds of shots). La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea ($24.95 hardcover) can be purchased at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Warwick’s in La Jolla, and other locations. I hope you'll check it out. Here is a short video about La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea.

My photography is available for licensing from Danita Delimont Stock Photography. Framed prints, metal prints, canvas prints, and acrylic face-mounted prints can be purchased from Great American Art. To view my images there, type my name--Ann Collins--in their search field. If you’re looking for photos I’ve shot at a specific location, e.g., La Jolla, add the location to the search field as well. Great American Art offers the widest selection of my art. The following online retailers offer a more limited selection: Art.com, AllPosters.com, Great Big Canvas, and Zazzle. Put my name in their search field.

Fun News From Ann

I'm excited to announce that I have two images in the 2021 Sierra Club Engagement Calendar. I am always so honored to have my work published in their prestigious and beautiful calendars.

Travel has been limited this year, but I was fortunate enough to make it to Yosemite in February 2020 for a wonderful photography conference. Everyone walked in the footsteps of Ansel Adams with the help of his son, daughter-in-law, and former assistants.

In the fall of 2019, I visited Michigan and saw the Great Lakes for the first time. The clouds were amazing and very different from what I'm used to seeing in San Diego. On the Upper Peninsula, the fall color peaked at exactly the right time for me and my camera. Absolutely gorgeous!

In August 2019, I enjoyed being a panelist at the third annual San Diego Union-Tribune Festival of Books in Liberty Station, presented by UC San Diego. I spoke on the San Diego Local panel about my coffee table book, La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea. The night before, I was especially honored to be a featured speaker at a KPBS Producers Club event at the Prado in Balboa Park. What an incredible evening! 

The San Diego Community Newspaper Group published a very nice online article about my coffee table book and me, "‘La Jolla: Jewel by the Sea’ showcases area’s history and beauty." I am also excited to announce that some of my images are now available as prints from San Diego Fine Art Resources (SD-FAR).

In 2018, I was 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 was in the 2019 Sierra Club Engagement Calendar.
