Tricia Cronin is a travel, lifestyle, and dance photographer. She has been working professionally for the last ten years, nine of which have included teaching and photographing for National Geographic and Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, where she enjoys working alongside the beautiful, creative minds and eyes of her colleagues. She has found that working with people to explore their desire to improve their photographic skills is not only about photography, but also about bridging cultures, gaining understanding of others, and deeply connecting with ourselves. She often teaches alongside her friend and colleague, Catherine Karnow, in their annual workshops to Italy, Vietnam, and Cambodia. When she is not traveling, she is busy photographing her ongoing project about the heart and tenacity of dancers, and the passion that drives their pursuit. Her website is www.triciacronin.com.
