About Judith Farber
Judith’s journey began with her first workshop taught by Ansel Adams and Yousuf Karsh where her style of documentary photography was born. Since she had no desire to carry a view camera, she found her true calling in documenting Ansel, Yousuf and the class behind the scenes.
This new found passion lead her to working as a photojournalist for various newspapers in California and NY, with photos credited in magazines and books. She then traveled around the world for airlines and travel bureaus shooting photos for their publications.

She’s also been the primary judge on well known worldwide photo contests sponsored by Adobe, Sandisk and Canon. Capitalizing on her expertise in choosing winning photos she turned that talent into Critiquing Images and created the popular Photo Critique Private Sessions.
Judith’s passion is environmental portraits, finding special moments of energy while achieving perfect framing. Her images portray simple folk in their day-to-day rituals showing the spirit and flavor of a culture, from the warmth of their faces to the simplicity of the composition.
