I grew up in rural Wyoming, running around in the sunshine and playing cowboys and Indians. For my 18th birthday I got a camera, and I began photographing anything and everything that was beautiful to me. A few months later, my freshman year of college, I fell strongly in love with portraiture.
I completed my Associate of Applied Science degree in Photographic Communications at Northwest College in 2012, graduating with honors. In the winter of 2013, I founded Justine May Photography in Cody, Wyoming.
There is no place I would rather be. Wyoming is where I call home. I love it for its barren landscapes, for Yellowstone National Park, its unique western culture, and for its rough and wild essence. Call or email me if you are in need of a volunteer photographer for a local non-profit organization. I would love to support my Wyoming-ites and any and all types of that life that live here as well.
During my journey as a photographer, I’ve been able to engage in my community in a few ways.
–I’ve volunteered for non-profits such as the Nature Conservancy, The Park County Humane Society and The Wyoming Basset Hound Rescue.
–In 2015, I got to share my story with students in Cody High School’s media classes.
–My photos have been published by the Cody Enterprise, Powell Tribune, The Pulse, Cody and Beyond, and plainSpeak magazine.
–In 2016, I was a member of our local photography co-op, Open Range Images, where I sold fine art western lifestyle and nature photography.
