Keith Bauer

Keith is a local nature photographer and photographic instructor. His extensive background in photography started with traditional black & white darkroom work, continued through college in a professional studio specializing in portraits, weddings and commercial photography and has continued with his passion for nature photography and education.
With an academic background in computer science, the marriage of computing and digital photography came easily. Keith took advantage of this to become a digital post processing specialist and instructor. His special areas of interest in photography are wildlife and nature photography, creating images of simple, yet compelling stories.
He is an active member of the the North American Nature Photographers Association, and a staff member with Nature Photographers Network in the role of moderator in the Avian image critique gallery.
Notable awards include being published in the NANPA Showcase Expressions book the past 7 years, recipient of Avian image of the year in the International Nature Photographers Network competition, first place in the Best of Visual Wilderness contest, and winner of the Professional Photographers of New Mexico selection for the Best of Show in the Annual New Mexico Photographic Art Show.
Keith leads workshops at Bosque Del Apache, Columbia River Gorge, Costa Rica and Chile and provides one on one instruction for clients in Albuquerque and across the US.
He retired from a career in software at Sandia National Labs in early 2017. You can see his work on his website,
