About the Artist

Photographer Heidi Pinkerton sees wonder in the world around her and she’s determined to share that vision through her art. Specializing in photographing the Aurora borealis and based on the edge of true wilderness in northern Minnesota, Heidi uses more than a decade of professional experience and a lifetime of intuition to create indelible images of wild life and wild skies.

But it’s nightfall that truly awakens Heidi. With loons and wolves as her natural accompanists, there she finds endless inspiration to create evocative portraits of the night sky.

Along with her husband, Tom, Heidi lives in Babbitt, Minnesota, where she is the owner of Root River Photography. Her images can be found in a variety of publications and her fine art prints hang in homes around the world.
