Ann Duncan is a nature and travel photographer living in Boulder, Colorado. Since forming her company Synergraphics in 1976, she has shot both stock and assignment work for a diversity of editorial and commercial clients. She now shoots only stock, focusing primarily on the Colorado tourism business. Passionate about the outdoors since childhood, Ann frequently travels throughout Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West, exploring and hiking in search of evocative images for calendars, cards, magazines and web sites. She loves the excitement of discovering a new location and capturing its unique beauty. Known for her crisp, colorful, flower-filled landscapes, Ann is persistent about waiting for the right conditions. When the light, wind, clouds and flowers cooperate for the camera, it is always a magical experience. She occasionally donates her work to nonprofit conservation groups such as Colorado Open Lands, Colorado Native Plant Society, Colorado Water Trust, and Rocky Mountain Nature Conservancy to help protect wild places and their natural resources. She especially enjoys working with the City of Boulder’s Open Space & Mountain Parks department.
Ann has also enjoyed extensive international travel and is particularly fascinated by the primitive, traditional cultures found in such developing countries as Ghana, Guinea, India, Mali, Micronesia, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea.
In addition to her nature and travel work, Ann has found a niche in environmental subjects like garbage and recycling, solar and wind power, climate change, drought, pollution, and overdevelopment. The Earth faces many challenges, and Ann wants to raise awareness of these issues through her photography.
Ann is a past member of the Professional Photographers of Boulder County and a current member of the North American Nature Photographers Association. Her work can be found in several private collections and in the permanent collection at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Denver Colorado.
Ann’s publishing credits and commercial clients include Backpacker, Boulder Chamber of Commerce, Boulder Magazine, The Boulder Reporter, Boulder Daily Camera, Fodor’s, Frommer’s, H2Logos, Money Magazine, National Geographic, Re/Max, and Silicon Mountain Memory, Travel Boulder.
