Gwen Coyne is a photographer based in Oakland, California.

She studied art and psychology at UCSC and leads a creative strategy team. In her spare time, she enjoys chronicling time spent with her eleven-year-old daughter and capturing sights from her cell.

Gwen is a Getty Images contributor, and her pictures have been published in B&W Magazine, Better Photography, Burn Magazine, CAPA Magazine, Click Magazine, Corriere della Sera, Feature Shoot, Fotopolis, Fotoritim, Glamour Netherlands, Instagram, LensCulture, Newsweek Japan, and Prestel. She has had a selection of photographs exhibited internationally at places such as the Denver International Airport in Colorado, the Perfect Exposure Gallery in California, the Photo Center in Moscow, Russia and the Can Basté Centre in Barcelona, Spain.

She has also contributed to "Out of the Phone", the world's first Instagram photo book, which garnered attention from The Guardian and L'Oeil de la Photographie, in addition to receiving CNN's editor's choice. She has a photo featured in David Gibson's "100 Great Street Photographs", and is a member of the 14&15 Mobile Photographers collective, on Instagram. A long time ago, she participated in "Finding Lost Time"—a collaborative book and photography exhibition traveling through Europe—that included artists from around the world.
