Abe Snider

I am a Flagstaff native who has been creating art using digital cameras for over 10 years. During my travels throughout much of Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia I began to document the places and people I met along the way, and wanted to share those experiences with others who may never be able to see it themselves. 

After returning home and at the request of family and friends I started to print my work. I quickly learned the methods of matting and framing and began to display my work publicly. I have displayed my work around Northern Arizona and have been featured in multiple international newspapers and magazines (full list below). 

I currently offer astrophotography and landscape classes & workshops around Northern Arizona. I've written several e-books and guides designed to help the beginner learn the basics when shooting the night sky and later when processing. They are available under the Learn section of this website. 

My work has been featured in various forms: 

  • 2017 Viola Nominee for Emerging Artist - Flagstaff Arts Council
