Elizabeth Carmel is a professional fine art photographer specializing in unique, expressive landscapes and “waterscapes.” Elizabeth’s fine art prints combine dramatic photography, vivid colors, and artistic touches to create new, captivating visions of the natural world.

Her award winning images are in numerous galleries and private collections throughout the United States. Her prints have been displayed at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C., the California Museum of Photography and the Nevada Museum of Art. In 2006 Elizabeth published a book of her photography titled “Brilliant Waters, Portraits of Lake Tahoe, Yosemite and the High Sierra” with a foreword by Robert Redford: “I saw this country as if I had not seen it before—like I was being led slowly, carefully, along a great and beautiful path.”
Elizabeth is one of 12 photographers in the world selected as a Hasselblad Master Photographer in 2006. Her book “Brilliant Waters” was selected as the best Gift Book of 2006 by the San Francisco Chronicle Book Review.
