About Becky Jaffe

A photographer, naturalist, and educator living in Oakland, California, Becky Jaffe teaches Art of Seeing courses for advanced fine art photographers, judges at the Berkeley Camera Club, and is the Artist-in-Residence at the University of California’s Botanical Garden at Berkeley. Using in-camera techniques that stretch the photographic medium to create painterly effects, she fuses an artist’s sensibility with a biologist’s curiosity in order to communicate reverence for the natural world. 

Her photographs have been recognized by the California Academy of Sciences, the Center for Fine Art Photography, the Entomological Society of America, and have been published in The Buddhist Poetry Review, Bay Nature Magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle and National Geographic’s Your Shot. She is represented by the Abrams Claghorn Gallery in Albany, California.
