A native Californian, Christine White Loberg, developed a love for photography at age 13, when asked to photograph her dad as Santa Claus for one of the local malls. After high school she took photography classes at Cal State Fullerton to expand her technical skills, attended Brooks Photography College and took additional classes from the Main Photography School which is sponsored by Kodak.
Christine has worked in photography stores, photo studios and photo labs to increase her photography knowledge. Developing a love for nature, she became involved with The Sierra Club, making frequent visits to Yosemite. It was during one of these visits that she met Ansel Adams, and then in 1985 decided to accept a job working as a lab technician in Yosemite Valley. Christine is our most senior staff photographer having worked for The Ansel Adams Gallery for many years while also working as a seasonal Ranger for the interpretive division in Yosemite National Park.
Christine has also worked and taught for The Yosemite Conservancy, Kodak Corporation, Yosemite Park and Curry Co., The Sierra Club, Vision Academy of the Arts, YMCA, Yosemite High School, Road Scholar, and Parks in Focus. Having raised her sons in Yosemite, she instilled in them a love of nature and a zeal to protect it for the next generation.Tremendously passionate about photography and nature, Christine has made it her mission and life-long goal to inspire and teach the next generation of nature photographers.
