Ms. Bare grew up in rural Missouri where her love of all things “nature” first started. She took her first photography class in 6th grade and has never stopped learning and exploring the art of photography. She is a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography and studied under Steamboat’s beloved photographic artist, Karen Shulman. Gina’s unique ability to capture moods, feeling, and emotions through her photography are what draws people to her work.
