Aaron Hamilton Bible, B.A., M.F.A., is a writer and photographer based in Nederland, Colorado. Originally from the mountains of East Tennessee, Bible is an editor, digital media pioneer, fine art photographer, professor of photography, author, content consultant, mountain athlete and adventurer. Bible is a contributing editor to numerous regional and national U.S. publications and websites, specializing in outdoor/adventure travel, gear reviews and gear trends, short stories, profiles, outdoor sports and event coverage. While inflected with a modern style, his photographic work harkens back to Southern traditions of nostalgia, the conflict between man and nature, and entropy. His portraiture ranges from isolated studio treatments to extended environmental portraits. When not behind the camera or in front of the computer, Bible can be found riding his bike, running trails, skiing, and playing outdoors with his wife, daughter and dogs.
