About Neider, Susan

Susan M. Neider's fascination with California began when she was a child. After graduating from Princeton University with a degree in chemistry, she parlayed her interest in the chemistry of photography into a career in fine art and portrait photography. A trip with her camera through the area has rekindled her interest in the region's beauty. She is also the author of the companion books Color Country: Touring the Colorado Plateau and High Country: Touring the Colorado Rockies.
