plains of the Serengeti to the bluebonnet fields of Texas, Gail Nogle has used her camera to capture the richness, beauty, and uniqueness of our world. Highly regarded by both critics and col-lectors, she is noted for her artistic vision as well as her mastery of the technical aspects of her craft.
Born in Troy, New York, Gail Nogle was eight years old when she was given her first camera. As a teenager she did baby-sitting for neighbors, Carol and George Skarshinki, who had a darkroom in their basement, taught Gail to use a 4x5 view camera and encouraged her blossoming interest in photography. She received a scholarship to Rochester Institute of Technology and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. Gail was awarded the Master of Photography in 1981, the Photographic Craftsman in 1996 and a Fellow in American Society of Photographers in 1998. Gail is one of few women in the world who have earned this honor. She is the recipient of numerous honors, including the Gold Medallion Award and several Kodak Gallery Awards and Fuji Master-piece Awards. Gail is considered an innovator in children's portraiture and fine art photography.
Whimsy and boundless enthusiasm are as much a part of Gail Nogle's stock-in-trade as her RB67 camera. Gail has the exceptional talent of capturing the extraordinary in ordinary people. Over the past few years, she has expanded her photographic range by studying with Jay Stock, renowned for his "impressionistic style" portraiture. Currently, she travels around the country and abroad, giving lectures and searching out exciting, unusual locations. On one such location, Gail photographed "African Sunset" which was accepted in the Masters Loan Collection.
Children's photography remains Gail's forte and her studio, is a paradise for the young and the young at heart.
