TBC / Margo Pinkerton

Margo Pinkerton, a.k.a. The Barefoot Contessa, got her first camera at age eight and has been photographing and traveling with a passion ever since. She started out as a location and stock photographer for travel, outdoor, advertising, and corporate clients in the early 80s, has given numerous photo workshops and lectures, and has led many photo adventures. Her work has appeared in a plethora of calendars, coffee-table books, and magazines worldwide, including GEO and National Geographic Traveler. Margo's photographs have won numerous awards over the years and are in private and museum collections here and abroad.  Growing up in an artistic family that exposed her to the great museums and painters of the world has given Margo a unique insight into composition and the quality of light. The energy and passion for photography that she brings to the workshops are infectious.

Arnie Zann

Her husband and partner, Arnie Zann, started his career nearly 50 years ago photographing for LIFE and Time and has been published in almost every major magazine in the world, including National Geographic, Paris Match, GEO and others. His award-winning work is in many private and museum collections including the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY. He, too, has given many workshops and seminars throughout his long career travelling the world for editorial and Fortune 100 and 500 clients. Arnie's knowledge of the zone system and dramatic lighting brings strength to his photographs. He also has an uncanny eye for what photographs will become effective black and whites.

In addition to their broad range of assignment work, both Margo and Arnie have shot extensively for stock images that have appeared in advertising, corporate, and editorial venues. Their passion is making beautiful images worldwide. As Margo always says, "We cannot not do photography."
