For more than a decade, Krista Rossow has worked as a photographer, photo editor, and educator for National Geographic. She began her career as a photo editor at National Geographic Traveler
magazine, where she shaped compelling stories from world-class imagery. In her freelance career, she has shot feature stories for Traveler
in South Africa, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Japan, and various U.S. cities. Her images are represented by the National Geographic Image Collection, and she regularly judges Instagram contests for @NatGeoTravel
and photo edits for National Geographic Books. Krista also travels with National Geographic Expeditions teaching photography around the world–from the Galápagos Islands, Patagonia, and Morocco to Alaska, Antarctica, and the Arctic. She enjoys photographing throughout Europe and the Iberian Peninsula as well, drawn to the way of life in Portugal and Spain. Krista sees the camera as a passport to exploring new places and cultures, and she looks forward to sharing insights on how to tell the story of people and places through images.
