Barbara Swanson

I have been passionate about nature photography for many years and focus on photographing wildlife and flowers. As Vice President and then President of the North County Photographic Society, I helped give back to and enrich the local photographic community. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and lead outings to Anza Borrego Desert State Park.

My photographs have been displayed in shows at the Ordover Gallery in the San Diego National History Museum, including Best of Nature (second place). I often judge the Student Showcase photography competition at the San Diego County Fair and compete in the International Division (first place and People's Choice Award). I enjoy traveling, hiking and gardening. I am a scientist by vocation who works in biotech.
