Area museum displays Rod Hanna's photo retrospective

The Museum of Northwest Colorado is now exhibiting a 50-plus year photography retrospective by longtime regional photographer Rod Hanna. The exhibit will be open through Nov. 9.

Hanna moved to Steamboat Springs from Kansas City in 1975 after 13 years as an award-winning photojournalist and sports photography specialist. He then began a 25-year career marketing Steamboat Ski Area. During that time, he also served 10 years as official photographer for the Denver Broncos.

His interest turned to nature landscape and fine art photography. His photographs have appeared in a number of books by the National Football League and in a variety of national publications, including People, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek and Travel & Leisure.

Hanna is currently represented by Wild Horse Gallery in Steamboat Springs for his landscape photography and USA Today Sports Images for his legacy NFL photographs. In November 2007, he published his first book of his landscape photographs, "Seasons of Light, Impressions of Steamboat Springs and the Yampa Valley," and in 2010, his second book, "Seasons of Gold," portraying autumn on Colorado's Western Slope.

In 1984, he started and directed a workshop in Steamboat Springs called "Photography at the Summit" that ran for eight years and now is located in Jackson Hole, Wyo. His work can also be seen at rodhanna.com.
