“From the beginning of my freelance career 31 years ago, it has been my interest in science that has given my wildlife photography its direction. Science helps me to locate my subjects, to understand the trials and tribulations of their existence, to minimize, if not eliminate, my impact on their survival, and to capture a authentic visual record of their lives. When I am working with a species, my goal is not to come away with a single stunning signature image but to tell a story using multiple images, a story that celebrates the many facets of a subject’s beauty, biology and behavior. Humankind generally reacts strongly to a beautiful image, but we connect even more, on an emotional level, to multiple images that tell a story and challenge us to care. These are the stories I try to tell with my photography.” Wayne Lynch Photography...

Joel Sartore

The very last dusky seaside sparrow is at rest in a jar of preservative fluid at a Florida museum. The species is extinct, and there?s no going back. Worldwide, thousands of endangered species are on the same path, but there?s still time to save them. The United States has a unique tool, the Endangered Species Act, in the fight to keep these creatures from slipping away forever. For photographer Joel Sartore, the concept of extinction started out as a photo of Martha, the last passenger pigeon. After seeing the image as a child, he wondered how something so numerous could go away completely. As the focus of his professional career shifted toward environmental issues, the reason Martha and her kind vanished became plain as day: people will only save what they care about, and they will only care about that which they know. Imperiled species range from practically weightless flies to massive mammals, and one of the first challenges the team faced was how to give very different creatures...

When I began as a photographer,  I was taking pictures mostly for myself. When we had children my mindset  changed, and now I do the work mostly  for them. Because I don’t want my kids or anyone else’s to grow up one day and only be able to appreciate the wonders of nature in a museum or read about it in a book or see it in a zoo. I feel we are blessed to be stewards of this planet, but in many cases we have forgotten that with this privilege comes responsibility. Photography can be a powerful witness to our short-comings, but also to show that beauty and hope still exists in the natural world. It can help communicate to people why something matters. Conservation photography is an active  and powerful tool to begin this process,  to start the conversation, to call for action. Time is short. – Michael Forsberg  http://www.michaelforsberg.com/gpbook.html...

Steve Bentsen DVM

A native South Texan, I got into photography in high school and shot as a hobby for years, including black & white with the requisite home dark room. I have always loved nature and the outdoors. I grew up hunting, fishing, camping and am an Eagle Scout. After graduating vet school I returned to South Texas where I included wildlife rehabilitation work and wildlife/habitat management on private lands in my veterinary practice. I guided hunters and birders for over 20 years. Through all of these activities I carried my camera and photographed liberally. Wildlife and nature photography became a serious passion in the mid 70’s and in the mid 80’s I embarked upon a part-time free-lance writing/photography career which I squeezed in and around my veterinary career and outdoor activities. I had work published in a wide assortment of publications (list available at www.stevebentsen.com) over the next 20 years, primarily focusing my efforts on private lands in extreme South Texas. My passions have been wildlife, pets, habitat and nature...
