Elizabeth Eaton is known around the Globe-Miami community as a local photographer. She was born in California but grew up in the town of Minot, North Dakota. Her summers were spent on the Eaton Ranch, a fourth-generation ranch, with horses that she would show.
Where does photography fit in? She remembers her dad always taking pictures of the family and events, but she went to school to earn her elementary teaching certification. After traveling through Arizona, Eaton was hired as a fourth-grade teacher in San Carlos and has nothing but great memories of her time there. Since retirement, her passion has been photography. It’s a way of life for her, to capture events, moments and details that are often overlooked by the everyday passerby. Her first camera was a Nikkormat, now she has a Nikon that travels with her everywhere. Her advice to other photographers is to “Snap away.” Eaton said you have to get out and start taking photos to get the experience.
Her most recent exhibit “Faces of Men” was on display at the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts on April 2.
