The person behind the lens

A little about me (Shanna Koltz)

I believe imperfections are beautiful. I strive to create images that capture emotion while telling a story. I am forever chasing the perfect photo... I am a teacher and a student. I am thankful for everyday that I am able to create something that will last beyond my lifetime.

I love my family…even the crazy ones. My 19 year old son never fails to inspire and teach me while I never fail to embarrass him.  My husband of 22 years, is an amazing partner who encourages me to pursue my art. He is a wonderful dad, loving husband and all around great guy. I am grateful for all of the support and love in my life. 

My editing days are treasured because I can stay in my PJ's and drink coffee all day.  Making sets at my studio, Studio Rouge, is something I also enjoy; I make time to play in my studio whenever possible.  I LOVE photographing people! But, I also feel alive when I walk the streets of Paris, or sit on the beach waiting for the sun to rise, or create a new world with an image.  There is just so much for me to experience in this world!  There is also so much to be said... So many stories to be told.  These are the reasons I love photography and art. 

I own Koltz Photography and Studio Rouge on Main (a photography boutique). I photograph client sessions, fashion, and events for a living.  I photograph artistic conceptual images and landscapes for my soul.  

I am a deep thinker, I am driven by emotions and inspired by challenges. 

If you are interested in purchasing one of my conceptual art pieces, landscape or want to book a session  please contact me via e-mail at 

I am also open to discuss gallery showings, public speaking appearances or teaching oppertunities.


You can also find me on instagram, Facebook under Koltz Photography & Tik Tok.  I am either on them as Shanna Koltz, Studio Rouge or Koltz Photography.

Thank you for taking a moment to look at my images.
