Synopsis: Photographers have a skill few possess. Photographs have power. They can be used to save wild places. Now your photos have a purpose and your camera has a cause.
This book is a call to action, providing the tools to become a conservation photographer and to help you save wilderness and wildlife everywhere. The author, a former nuclear physicist, has spent over four decades doing just that through his books, magazine articles, and lectures worldwide. He?s been credited with saving, through his photographs and personal activism, millions of acres of wilderness throughout the country and around the world.
This book will teach you how to: create images with the power to motivate others; find publications where your photographs have the most impact; work with conservation organizations; use video as an adjunct to your photos; make the best use of lenses; keep your images organized, usable, and safe; deal with the good, the bad, and the ugly; and more.
About the Author:
Boyd Norton travels extensively in documenting the world?s wild places and environmental issues, a specialty he has pursued as a photographer and writer for more than forty-five years. Outdoor Photography Magazine U.K. has called him “One of the 40 most influential nature photographers from around the globe.?
For most of his photographic and writing career, Norton has devoted a great amount of time to conservation issues and the preservation of wilderness and wildlife worldwide. He played a key role in establishment of several wilderness areas in the Rocky Mountains, new national parks in Alaska, and in the designation of Siberia?s Lake Baikal as a World Heritage Site.
Among his many awards, he received commendation from the Environmental Protection Agency, presented by Robert Redford, for his “important, exciting environmental photography and writing.? Currently he is founder of Serengeti Watch, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the vast Serengeti ecosystem and its wildlife from destructive developments.
He is the author and photographer of 16 books, ranging in topics from African elephants and mountain gorillas to Alaska wilderness, Siberia?s Lake Baikal and the Serengeti ecosystem. Norton?s articles and photo essays have appeared in most major magazines including Time, National Geographic, Smithsonian, Audubon, Natural History, Sierra, The New York Times, Geo, Popular Photography, Outdoor Photographer, Conde Nast?s Traveler, Outside, Stern, Reader?s Digest, and a great many more around the world.
When he?s not in the wilds of Borneo or Siberia or Africa, he calls Evergreen, CO, home.
