COMMENTS Battaglia has built a varied photo file of the activities, sports, scenes and mountain lifestyles in the wilderness area where she lives. Lake Placid in the Adirondacks is a training/competition site for Olympians and other outdoor enthusiasts. This photographer's appreciation for human energy, nature's beauty and rustic charm befits travel and sports editorial features and advertising. "If you don't see what you need in my existing files, I'll venture out and shoot it," she says. Battaglia has been credentialed for eight Olympic Winter Games and is herself an ADK 46er (twice), having hiked the 46 highest mountains in the Adirondacks. Minimum use fees and research fees apply.
