Tatiana Boyle is an editorial and commercial travel and lifestyle photographer based in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A., a member of American Society of Media Photographers - ASMP. She first began her adamant venture into science and motion picture production on cellulose and acetate film. By the time everything digital came around, she hosted a weekly TV show, filmed and photographed the greater part of Europe and Asia, and produced three independent films.
Photographer and biologist by formal education, Tatiana graduated summa cum laude and received a Ph.D. degree in biology from Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, in 1995. Her scientific pursuits led to an addition of a new species to Alaska's list of rare plants, proposed system of protected areas in Russian regions bordering China, along with two monographs and multiple papers. She realized her dreams of merging science, arts, and foreign languages in Russia, China, and the United States through a number of research and corporate projects, which eventually lead her to a full-time vocation in photography. Majoring in Film Production, she graduated the class of Prof. Aleksandr Terletsky in 1991, and later studied Visual Storytelling and Portrait Photography under direction of Frans Lanting, George Lepp, and Joe McNally.
With camera in hand and some knowledge of languages, Tatiana is absorbed by intellectual wanderlust of climes and their communities. In every venue, she seeks a distinct ambiance that creates an unmistakable sense of a particular place, its rhythms and lifestyles. In her spare time, she enjoys taking her family to the misty forest trails in the Columbia River Gorge or serving her weekend culinary delights.
Some of her recent editorial clients include GEO, Travel Oregon, American Forests, MediAmerica, Allen&Unwin, Science Press, Tiger Oak Publications, Capstone Press, VIA Magazine.
