After graduating from FSU in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art with a focus in photography and graphic design, Tiffany Taxis relocated to Jackson, Wyoming, where she works as a Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris- Naturalist Guide and Photography Guide. Taxis leads educational wildlife and photography safaris through Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park. As a guide, she passionately educate guests about the natural history of the parks, local conservation efforts, Leave No Trace, and bear safety. She also teach photography specific guests of all different skill levels how to improve their photography and deepen their understanding of their gear.
Through both her photography and guiding Taxis hopes to educate, inspire, and foster a deep appreciation and understanding for wildlife and wildlife conservation. Recently Taxis placed Runner Up in PetaPixel Wild Personalities Photo Contest sponsored by OM System and Linblad Expeditions. Speaking of her work featured Taxis says that “While photographing an energetic fox family, my attention was captured by one of the fox kits as it ventured away from the group and took interest in a long blade of grass. The kit began playfully pouncing and biting at the grass which made for some lighthearted images.” Taxis’ photograph titled “399 and four cubs” was selected for Prints for Wildlife 2022, a fundraiser for African wildlife conservation and communities that has raised 2.1 million dollars since 2020. In December 2022 she appeared in and licensed 3 photographs for BBC Germany Special titled “Wyoming: In America’s Lonesome Heart”. She also participated in a live photography presentation with Macro Photographer, Ben Salb titled “Up Close and Far Away” for OM System (formerly known as Olympus) where she disuses many of her photographs and her process.
