Armed with nothing but her artistic eye and her camera, Dragana Connaughton seeks to reveal the magic of the natural world around us all. Her award winning photography captures the essence of a moment in a particular place in time. She says there is nothing more captivating and majestic than Mother Nature and Dragana constantly travels around the world in search of new locations and interesting natural subjects to photograph.
Through her work, she is hoping to inspire others to get reconnected with nature and to remind everyone of the importance of conserving wildlife and their natural habitat. Today, Dragana possesses the same wonderment, awe and curiosity as she did when she was a child and feels that is a gift to be cherished forever.
Many factors throughout her lifetime have influenced and helped inspire her photography. As a former Ford model and cover girl, she was frequently photographed by the best fashion photographers in the business. Upon receiving her first paycheck she promptly bought herself a new Nikon camera. She always enjoyed being the photographer instead of the “photographee”.
Over three decades, she documented her four children’s lives in both film and stills. Her children’s athletic endeavors’ helped train her for tracking fast moving objects which is ever so important in shooting nature.
Now as an empty nester living in Palm Beach, Florida, she is able to devote more of her time to her great love of photography. She states that one has to constantly put themselves out there to be at the right place at the right time to catch that “aha moment”.
