The WinterBadger Collection combines the photographic talents of Rob Badger and Nita Winter. Each brings their own expertise, keen eye, and attention to detail to projects ranging from portraits of children and families to landscape photography, wildflower imagery, and photojournalism that tells the story of humanity’s impact on the planet. Our approach demands we work hard to find a new way of photographing the landscape. With every image we capture we strive to reinvent photography and transform the way we see. The result is a strong body of work and nature photography, unlike anything you’ve seen before. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, WinterBadger Fine Art captures both the essence of the human spirit and the transcendent beauty of the natural world. Their work has been seen in galleries throughout California including the Thoreau Center for Sustainability in San Francisco, the G2 Gallery in Venice, CA, and featured in publications such as American Photo, Los Angeles Times, Natural Home, New York Times, OMNI, Sunset, Sierra Wilderness Society, Time and the Washington Post. Sutter Healthcare and Kaiser Permanente have commissioned very large scale images from WinterBadger for incorporation into the architecture of several new hospitals. The largest installation is 9 feet tall by 125 feet wide. Engaging photography from WinterBadger Collection has been commissioned by clients including San Francisco Art Commission, Alameda County Art Commission, Sutter Health, Kaiser Permanente, Palo Alto Medical Foundation and the Irvine Foundation, and received international awards from BBC/British Museum of Natural History, Communication Arts and Graphis.
For more than 20 years Rob and I have been working on a documentary art project: Beauty and The Beast: Wildflowers and Climate Change. Since 2017 the non-profit organization Exhibit Envoy has traveled our educational, art-to-action exhibit: Beauty and The Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change, with a focus on California wildflowers. More than 40,000 people have seen across California it to date.
It is returning to the San Francisco Bay area with an exhibit at the Sausalito Bay Model April 2 - June 1, 2019.
Visit us during both Marin Open Studio weekends or during our artist reception on April 6th, 1-3 pm. This exhibit is hosted by the Marin Chapter of California Native Plant Society.
