Sue Jarrett was born and raised in Mississippi, the daughter of a doctor and an artist.
She graduated from Hallmark Institute of Photography in Massachusetts and Newcomb College of Tulane University in New Orleans.
While photographing weddings for years, Sue started working as a photojournalist at newspapers in various states. About 15 years ago, Sue started photographing wildlife, which she loves to do now. Several times a year she travels to Florida and the Tennessee Smoky Mountains, and in the past few years she has made trips to Rocky Mountain National Park, and Katmai NP and Lake Clark NP in Alaska, and various preserves in Kenya and Tanzania to photograph the wildlife. Plans to lead tours to ranches in Texas, Yellowstone NP and the Grand Tetons, and back to Africa in 2013 are in the planning stages. Sue loves wildlife photography.
The majority of Sue's wildlife photographs are limited to 300 images, with the prices increasing as the sales get closer to the 300 limit. Some images are used in calendars and in a children's book currently in design.
Sue is a member of the World Wildlife Fund, National Wildlife Federation, African Willdife Foundation, North American Nature Photographers Association, Beaufort Art Association, Photography Club of Beaufort, Nikon Professional Services and ASPCA.
In both 2009 and 2010 Sue's entry was a finalist in the annual Nature's Best Photography Magazine Contest. In 2011 Sue's photograph of a Snowy Egret arguing with a Tricolored or Louisiana Heron won Best in Show in the annual contest at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.
