My name is Jenny K. Thomas, and I am from Bayou La Batre, a small fishing town on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Yes, I'm southern-raised, and I say "y'all." Bayou La Batre is the seafood capital of Alabama, and you may recognize the name from the movie Forrest Gump. If you are familiar with the movie, you’re probably saying my first name a little differently in your head now. Go on, get it out of your system. ♥
I am a cactus-lover, a perfectionist, a turquoise junkie, and a voracious reader. I appreciate a sense of humor, like to laugh at myself, and think that kindness goes a long way. I enjoy psychology and sociology, which I studied in college, and hold a special interest in applied psychology. Finally, I am a landscape and nature photographer, self-taught and always learning.
I developed a love for landscape photography after relocating to southwestern New Mexico. I quickly became fascinated by the visuals the region presented: desert flora and mountains, isolated storms that can be seen from a distance, vivid night skies, wide open roads, brilliantly colored sunrises and sunsets, and unique southwestern style and details. Recently, I have also become interested in wildlife photography, especially New Mexico’s state bird, the Greater Roadrunner. If you want a bird with character, look no further—well, if one stays still long enough, that is. It's called a roadrunner with good reason!
I specialize in capturing dreamy scenery of New Mexico, the Gulf Coast, and other places I visit. I attempt to convey in an image the emotions that the scene evoked at the time of capture. My hope is that these images inspire powerful feelings within those who view them.
