His photographic prowess and artistry are in his blood.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Tony Rowell, the son of renowned photographer and mountaineer Galen Rowell, captures the beauty of the natural world through his photography. An avid world traveler, one of Tony’s favorite subjects is the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains.
