About Tina Henle
Tina Henle is an award winning freelance photographer with over forty years of photographic experience. She grew up on the island of St. Croix in a family of artists, the second daughter to photographer Fritz Henle. Acquiring her first camera, a 35mm Rollei at age twelve and a twin lens Rolleiflex at age eighteen, she then ventured on to various other formats as her career unfolded. In 1984 she received a degree in Art and Anthropology from the University of New Mexico and worked and mentored with her father throughout the 1980's. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in the Caribbean and the US.
A wanderer at heart, Tina has traveled extensively throughout the world documenting diverse cultures and landscapes. She has always been a “straight” photographer with little or no manipulation of imagery, attuning to optimal compositions and lighting, often seeking an abstraction of subject or an irony and ambiguity of a situation. “Photography has offered me the most immediate expression in the visual arts in seeing the world as it is”.
Tina resides in St. Augustine and St. Croix where she freelances as a commercial, wedding and portrait photographer. She is the co-owner of the Henle Studio Art Gallery in St. Croix along with her brother Martin Henle and exhibits her work at the Butterfield Garage Art Gallery in St. Augustine. She travels worldwide to continually add to her portfolio of creative fine art photography.
