Mount Shasta, literally where heaven and earth meet

This calendar is created by Karrie Ann, owner and photographic artist for Living Shasta Photography

An artistry handed down to her by Jane English, an internationally known photograapher/writer who created the Mount Shasta Calendar from 1990-2011.  As expressed from Jane, the mountain is something many of us, near and far have in common.  Though our approaches and relationhips with it are many and diverse.  Whether hiking, skiing, mountaineering, photographing, spiritual passions, meditating, studying the geology and history, appreciating the beauty or simply just being aware of her presence.  There is something about the mountain that unifies us all!  Not only the physical mass of rock, earth, snow and trees but also the inner reflection of resonance--an innermost place within each of us that is best not named.  For it is in the naming that our differences arise.  If we can act from the sense of deep inner onesess then we  will all shine as multiple facets of a single jewel.

 

I KA, am a portrait photographer specializing around people in nature.  Even the images of Mount Shasta are her portrait, and those ever changing moods are always calling me in.  The process of dreaming, creating, scouting and planning details for every photo shoot are all key elements to my craft.  My favorite part is continually finding myself in the right place at the right time far surpassing any plans I could have dreamed possible.  I love being in nature... blending light, spirit, emotion and geometry to create stunning imagery that reminds us all how Magnificent this Life really is!  

 

I have enjoyed photography since I was a child.  My father was very passionate about teaching me to tell an overflowing story in just one single image.  The years went by and I moved to Mt Shasta with my parents in 1985. But it was the year 2001 that really shaped my craft into what it is today, bringing the birth of my first child and moving to Black Butte Lookout with my best friend. It was and incredible experience to bring new life into the world and to live in such an energetic location!  My home is literally sitting in the artery leading up to the heart of Shasta!  Every day are beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Magnificent storms continually rolling in and out over the top of us and settling on her peaks! Wild 60+mph winds working their way up and creating lenticular cloud masterpieces over the mountain. Some so unique to our area and obviously so when compared to the pictures that would surface of the same cloud from different views around the mountain.  I am literally living in a hot spot of activity and I couldn’t grab my camera fast enough every time a new emotion would grace the face of my child or this mysterious mountain.  My love for photography ignited and I began to educate myself on how to master photography with this new experience and tool called the “world wide web”.  I soon learned that if i could search it then i could learn it!  And so began my journey of being a self taught photographer!

 

Below are just a handful of my favorite images captured over the years from my home Black Butte Lookout.  Nestled right at the base of Black Butte in the North West valley of Mount Shasta, there is no other view like it.  The images are a combination of my professional cameras and half of them from my cell phone (most of those being the iphone).   People that have stayed with us over the years have been in awe to sit and watch the mountain and they all exclaim “never have i slept so peacefully than when i lay to sleep at Black Butte”.    This place is quite an

experience  and we look forward to connecting and sharing with many more from around the world that travel and stay here. KA
