Becky Hale is a studio photographer on staff with National Geographic magazine in Washington, D.C. 

Her studio work is wide ranging and includes portraiture and still photography illustrating complex scientific and cultural stories. Her images have appeared in articles about how redheads experience pain, the evolution of artificial hearts, and advances in organ regeneration. She is a regular contributor to National Geographic magazine.

Fieldwork has taken her on assignment to Istanbul, Rome, and Cairo. She’s shot aerials of the whooping crane migration from an ultralight aircraft for National Geographic Wild and driven thru Idaho shooting portraits of the stakeholders affected by the reintroduction of wolves.

In her life beyond National Geographic, she’s the mother of two small redheads who try their best to evade her camera.
