Yan Palmer is a world-renowned film photographer, educator and public speaker. With the heart and eyes of a poet, and the spirit of a mystic, she has spent the majority of her career traveling far and wide, not only making art for her clients, but teaching other artists to do the same. Recognized as a ‘photographer’s photographer’, Yan’s work has appeared in publications like Kinfolk, Click, Let the Kids Dress Themselves, goop and more, and garnered worldwide acclaim.
Yan has set herself apart in the world of education with her unique philosophy that teaching artists to become more like her is useless. Instead, her mission revolves around empowering artists to harness their innate potential, to evolve into the truest expression of themselves.
Yan has bootstrapped her business from the ground up all while raising three children as a single mother. She has done so with rigorous, unwavering artistic integrity and a passionate dedication to making work and products aligned with the meaning she seeks to infuse into the world—the belief that you, your work, and the art of your life are infinitely valuable. Currently splitting her time between the magic landscapes of Oregon and the rugged beauty of Utah, Yan Palmer invites you to embark on a journey of self-discovery, artistic exploration, and boundless creativity.
