Becca Skinner was born into a family of adventurers and was raised in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and the high plains of Wyoming. This environment fueled a lifetime passion about wild places and exploring.
While studying Social Work and Technical Writing at the University of Wyoming, she won a National Geographic Young Explorer’s Grant to document post-tsunami Sumatra, Indonesia.
That trip sparked a leave from school, which led to 32,000 miles of living out of a car, traveling and photographing around the West. She now resides in Bozeman, Montana, working as an adventure and conservation photographer and writer.
