We live in a beautiful place, so it’s no surprise that the Texas Panhandle attracts photographers. JoAnna Robertson is a fine art portrait and wedding photographer whose evocative images never fail to capture our imaginations. The photos she shares in this issue were taken on her medium-format film camera, a Contax 645, while out on location shooting client portraits. 

“We are surrounded by beauty—deep canyons, native plants, vast blue skies, and lots of wildlife and livestock,” Robertson says. “I love capturing little vignettes that paint a small picture of the Panhandle’s personality. While I am shooting a portrait session, I am always looking for interesting subjects to photograph and add to my RanchHaus gallery.”
