A world-renowned photographer today, Windy Osborn initially established her photographic credibility in the 20" bicycle industry,
by the late 70’s. First published at 14, she showed natural abilities in photographing sports, having an eye for capturing peak action with extreme emotion. Working for Wizard Publications, Inc., 1976-1991, shooting for BMX Action Magazine, Freestylin' Magazine and Homeboy Magazine, Windy developed a craft and style that made her mark as a cutting edge, ground-breaking photographer, being the only professional female photographer in the industry of bicycle motocross, freestyle and skateboarding.
Windy was inducted into the National BMX Hall of Fame in the first-time-added category of BMX Women, June 2012. The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California. Windy was honored for her contributions to the growth of the sport of bicycle motocross and freestyle, through her photography. Recently, Windy has been honored as one of The 10 Most Influential BMX Photographers of All Time in Dig BMX Magazine.
In 2007 Windy re-entered the world of photography, transitioning from film to digital, and with a new subject-love for botanicals, which she captures with the same passionate vision as extreme sports. Communicating a vivd appreciation for the finer details in flowers, palms and succulents, Windy has been selling her new works as large-format canvas prints, through local Carmel and Carmel Valley galleries and gift shops, including Homescapes, Carmel, Carmel Bay Company, Carmel Valley Art Association and Avant Garden and Home, since 2008.
