Sheen Watkins lives in Birmingham, Michigan with her husband and their two dogs. As a family, they spend many hours each week immersed in nature. A long term birder and nature enthusiast, she had wished for many years for a camera to capture the beauty of the birds she experienced behind binoculars.
Her wish came true. Initially, she focused primarily on birds, then other wildlife using telephoto lenses. It wasn't long until the photography bug took hold and she expanded into macros and landscapes.
Sheen's photography and writings have been featured in corporate calendars, blogs, articles and recently a news story on Fox 2 News in Detroit, Michigan. She's a member of the global photography & writing team for Light Stalking, a site dedicated to creating beautiful photography for photographers at all levels. Her articles and photography can also be found on the Loaded Landscapes photography site.
She also serves on the board for Saving Birds Thru Habitat. This organization's mission is to bring awareness about the need for planting local, native plants to preserve the food source desperately needed by migrating birds and the supporting ecosystem.
