Jess Santos is a landscape and astro-landscape photographer and educator based in the Southwest. Her passion for the desert long precedes her passion for photography. Art is in her blood, along with a lifetime of art education and a degree in graphic design from the Las Vegas Art Institute. One day she was gifted a camera and her desert passion and love for art exploded through the lens!
Yes, Jess calls the desert her home and first love but she is a wanderer at heart, constantly on the road to her next adventure. She spends sleepless nights chasing the vibrant colors of desert landscapes and the distant glow of the Milky Way. She is captivated by new and varying ecosystems, and is especially fascinated with life in extreme environments.
