April's Featured Speaker

BIO: Kristina Plaas

Kristina Plaas is a retired Registered Nurse. She is Volunteer-in-Park with the National Park Service, collaborating with resource education, communications, and media specialists at Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the National Park Service Office of Communications in Washington, DC.

The daughter of a passionate hobbyist photographer, Kristina developed a love for photography at an early age, claiming the family Kodak Instamatic as her own. She purchased her first 35mm SLR camera after college and headed to the Smokies to photograph the history and beauty of Cades Cove. That love for capturing the wonders of nature has never ceased.

With the advanced technology afforded by digital cameras and computer-assisted editing, Kristina’s passion for photography has grown over the last decade. She examines the many the possibilities in nature and landscape photography. Wildflowers, waterfalls, and landscapes are her favorite photography subjects. Most of her work focuses on a naturalistic interpretation, but she enjoys abstract nature imagery as well. She shares her work on Facebook at Plaasabilities Photography and a website on Fine Art America.  Kristina invites all to come with her on her journey into nature – the “Plaasabilities” are endless!
