Colleen Miniuk

Photographer and Writer

After working as a software engineer for Intel Corporation for 10 years, Colleen Miniuk decided to close the doors on her cushy, cubicle job to pursue her love of the outdoors and photography in 2007. Since embarking on this journey to honor her passions, she has served three times as an Artist-in-Residence with Acadia National Park, has led numerous photography workshops for her own company as well as the Arizona Highways Photography Workshops, the Moab Photography Symposium, The Nature Conservancy, Arizona Wildlife Federation's "Becoming an Outdoor Woman," and for numerous private clients.

In 2017, in addition to her co-ed workshops, she started holding women's-only photography workshops under the brand, Sheography™, to inspire women to enjoy the outdoors safely and comfortably with their cameras.

In late 2019, she started a photography advice column, Dear Bubbles, which is packed with valuable nuggets of information about photography and creativity.

Colleen’s writing and images have been featured in On Landscape, National Parks Traveler, Extraordinary Vision, Arizona Highways, The Smoky Mountain Journal of Photography, National Geographic calendars, and many others.

Colleen has authored several award-winning guidebooks, including "Wild in Arizona: Photographing Arizona’s Wildflowers, A Guide to When, Where, & How" (1st and 2nd editions), the instructional eBook, "Seeing the Light in Outdoor Photography", and "Photographing Acadia National Park: The Essential Guide to When, Where, and How" of which she just released a second edition.

Colleen is also an active member and board member for the Outdoor Writers Association of America, where she has received numerous awards for her service to the organization. She is also a member of Women Writing the West and is currently serving as a contributor to Nature Photographers Network.
