Sharon Johnson-Tennant

Sharon Johnson-Tennant is an award winning Fine Art and Cultural Photographer living in Los Angeles.  Having spent 18 years in NYC as a successful Fashion and Textile designer, Sharon married, moved to Los Angeles, and had four children (including a set of triplets) in five years.  Needing to reconnect to her creative side, she picked up a camera while holding four babies, took technical classes on photography and never saw the world the same again.

Sharon has emerged as a serious presence in the photographic community.  She has been published in multiple magazines, including PDN and National Geographic Traveler. Her critical acclaim has garnered many awards, including 1st and 2nd place in the Julia Margaret Cameron awards and an honorable mention in the IPA International Photography Awards.  She has been juried into shows and galleries across the country and picked up on international Canon and Nikon websites.

Sharon is represented at the Robert Berman Gallery in Los Angeles.  Her work can also be seen on her website: www.sharonjohnsontennant.com
