Bonnie Rannald was born in Augusta, Georgia and her interest for the camera was sparked at an early age by observing her father who enjoyed photography as a hobby. Growing up in Georgia and Florida, Bonnie had countless opportunities to explore and observe nature which along with playing the drums became her favorite past-time.
Receiving her Bachelor of Science from North Texas State University and a Maters of Art from Texas Woman's University enabled Bonnie to combine her love of nature with the arts. Along with athletics, Bonnie integrated her appreciation for music into her studies mastering the percussion instruments throughout secondary school and college.
Upon moving to Las Vegas, Nevada to pursue her career in collegiate athletics, Bonnie discovered the Southwestern Desert and a passion was born with the union of photography and beauty of the natural environment. In 1993, Bonnie premiered her PhotoGraphic Expressions into the world of fine art and a relaxing recreational activity became channeled in to a full time career with her nature photography.
Bonnie's concern for the natural environment has always been the underlying theme in her nature photography which has led her to work with numerous conservation groups. During one of Bonnie's early solo exhibits with an environmental theme, a number of her photographs were selected by a reprehensive from the US Embassy for gifts to be shared in Ethiopia, thus increasing Bonnie's popularity on an international level.
Over the years, from art shows to workshops and television presentations, Bonnie's nature photography has became a collectable item and her gentle reminder of caring for and respecting nature is incorporated in to each image as she takes the viewer on an emotional journey with her camera.
"It is an honor and joy to bring to you through my photographic arts closeness to the natural world that has inspired me over the years. By being in the moment where time stands still, nature has revealed to me the oneness we all share as inhabitants on this beautiful planet, Earth."

Once in a while photography takes you out of your comfort zone and off the beaten path to a road less traveled when the weather conditions are so
unique that the landscape has been totally transformed in to a frozen mix of fog and ice.
