If I can create a moment of happiness, calm, or inspiration when you look at my photographs, then I’ve succeeded as an artist.

About Barb Kellogg

I am a photographic artist who creates elegant and timeless images. I am not a purist—some of my images are literal, some are not.

You'll see me using both digital and film to create. Neither is better. Each communicates in it's own way.

My About page talks about the why, my photographic interests and artist statement, plus gives you a humorous list of personal "stuff". Where else can you talk about both Wonder Woman and tofu in the same place?

Although I work primarily as a nature photographer, I also capture genuine and authentic Portrait images for those who love my style of photography. Conceptual photography is another area that I focus on, with images that represent varied emotions and stories. I'm also carving out time to provide mentoring.

I work primarily in the St. Cloud and surrounding area, living in Avon, Minnesota. READ MORE...

I can help.

Featured Blog Series - Inspiring Women

This is a series of blog posts featuring interviews with women who are entrepreneurs. While I will be interviewing a lot of artists, art is not limited to artists. The art of running a business is challenging and rewarding, no matter the discipline. Told in their own words (as much as possible), I'm looking forward to sharing fascinating stories from inspiring women!


I'd love to hear what my images mean to you! To read more or to send me your testimonial, click here to go to my testimonials page.

Last Green is Gold by Barb Kellogg

There is a serenity that comes over me whenever I look at this piece. I am reminded of my rural roots and the calm that can wash over one if we would but pause and retreat for a moment from what pervades. There is a stillness and a silence that is healing here, the sky becomes the water and I think of J.R.R. Tolkien, ‘All that is gold does not glitter, not all who wander are lost, the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by frost.‘ The last green is truly gold, if we would but let be.

Forget Me Not, Barb Kellogg

I see a soft, beautiful quality in your art that I don’t really have the right word to describe. I just know it makes me feel good. Please keep on bringing beauty into our sometimes ugly world!
