Ellen Jenkins

Ellen Jenkins has always been a zealous traveler, wanting to explore the world. In her early years as a budding photographer, she snapped hundreds of pictures of family, friends, and “journeys.”


Following school, she set out to see more of the world. Ellen, with her husband Ron, has visited all 7 continents, all 50 states, and over 55 countries. Of course, photography and travel are wonderful companions, and these travels have provided unlimited opportunities to learn about her craft and to capture through the viewfinder the wonders of landscape, history, and creatures all around us.


Ellen’s original photographic interest was primarily wildlife with its unpredictable, majestic, and challenging subjects. Over the years, she has expanded to produce artful landscapes, “non-wild” nature such as a variety of flora and fauna, and most recently, her work with miniatures, portraits and dancers has received significant notice.


 Since relocating to Pennsylvania, Ellen has worked on seriously honing her craft. Belonging to several photography clubs in the area gives her access to other fine photographers and a constant source of support and inspiration. She is the co-founder of a new group of women photographers in the South Central Pennsylvania area – the “Mamarazzi” - a group of like-minded women who explore unique photographic opportunities and mutual support and networking.  The Mamarazzi has already sponsored several group exhibits and its members are widely respected.


Ellen has exhibited considerably, both in individual shows, group exhibits, and juried competitions.  She is constantly searching for more unique subjects and artful ways in which to present them. The world around provides her palette and canvas.


Ron Jenkins

An avid Birder all his life, with an impressive “life list” of birds from all over the world, including some very rare species, Ron didn’t take up photography seriously until he was out of college and the military and married Ellen.   Then he had no choice but to strap a few cameras on an start snapping pictures.   Although his favorite subjects were always the birds, he quickly expanded his repertoire to include his other favorit subject – all wildlife.  His love for these subjects was enhanced by his travels to all 7 continents, all 50 states, and over 55 countries.   The absolute highlight of all these photographic journeys was his work in Africa.  His wildlife images from there have been widely viewed in exhibits and in a variety of programs for clubs and schools.


Ron is a tireless devotee of perfecting his craft, both through learning, educational meetings, books,   on-line classes, and simply going out and using his camera to capture whatever catches his eye.


He attempts different aspects for his landscape  images, often finding what is not at first noticed by the human eye.  His love for wildlife photography and action shots of “subjects” which don’t stand still has led to his desire to perfect his dance photography.


Ron has exhibited his work in many venues and belongs to several camera clubs.  Photography for Ron is an opportunity for constant learning, both technical and artistic, and motivates him to be always aware of the beauty and curiosites in the world around him.
