Welcome to Nature Photo Guides!

Nature Photo Guides features the photography of Sarah Marino and Ron Coscorrosa, high-quality educational photography ebooks and video tutorials, photography resources, and stories about our travels around the United States in an Airstream trailer. 


We are nature photographers based in rural southwestern Colorado. Sarah is a full-time photographer, photography educator, and writer and Ron is a software engineer who spends all of his free time on photography and in nature. We travel extensively around the United States and beyond.  We used to camp and live out of our SUV for long stretches of time but upgraded to a silvery home-away-from-home, a 25-foot Airstream trailer, in 2014.  Our Airstream enables us to work remotely while traveling and experience new places for extended periods of time.

In addition to photographing grand landscapes, we are best known for our photographs of a diverse range of smaller subjects including intimate landscapes, abstract renditions of natural subjects, and creative portraits of plants and trees. We also publish a range of educational resources for photographers, including ebooks and video tutorials on subjects including photographing nature’s small scenes, black and white photography, photo processing, and taking a photo from a concept in the field to a finished product. In a crowded market for such products, we aim to exceed expectations with our ebooks and videos through thoughtful, high-quality writing and instruction.

About Our Gear and Approach to Photo Processing

Since we get quite a few questions about the gear we use and our approach to photo processing, we have put together a brief overview for each topic.  You can access these sections by clicking on the buttons below. 

Get in Touch

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Although it may take some time to get back to you because we travel quite a bit, we try to respond to every legitimate email we receive about our photography, travel, or e-books.
