Meta Gatschenberger, RN, is an Award Winning Western North Carolina Nature Photographer based between Blowing Rock and Boone, NC, next to the Blue Ridge Parkway National Park, in the Western North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains.

Meta began shooting Nature Photography with her Minolta 35mm QTsi Film Camera and 35–80mm AF Telephoto Lens back in 2000. Meta now shoots with Sony Digital Cameras and Vintage Minolta AF Lenses.

Meta is very active in Western North Carolina Photography, winning many North Carolina Photography Contests and Photography Awards.

“Shooting with Vintage Minolta Maxxum AF Lenses, gives you certain bragging rights, when you can win many North Carolina Nature Photography Contests, shooting with a 1985 $100 Minolta AF Lens, compared to other photographers who paid thousands!”
~ Meta Gatschenberger

“I’ll shoot Cougars and Bears, but I don’t shoot Weddings or Portraits!”
