There is a very nice spread in the University of Washington Alumni Magazine “COLUMNS” this month. The University is celebrating 2012 as their 150th Anniversary and featuring noteworthy Alumni.
Art Wolfe graduated in 1975. This spread also celebrates the beautiful and unique natural environment of the UW campus as only Art can see it.
Begins at the birding paradise Kutch Wildlife Sanctuary, winds through a truly dazzling array of bazaars and ends at one of the oldest continously inhabited cities on Earth, sacred Varanasi on the Ganges.
Publisher Frederking & Thaler is reissuing the award-winning German edition Edge of the Earth, Corner of the Sky in Europe!
Bergspitzen, die wie glühendes Eisen in der Sonne leuchten, Kaskaden von Licht über brechenden Pazifikwellen, das berauschende Farbspiel herbstlicher Wälder und die glasklare Schönheit eisbedeckter Granitberge. Wolfes Bilder sind sensationell, atemberaubend und immer wieder faszinierend. In Landschaften zwischen Himmel und Erde porträtiert er Natur rund um den Globus und schafft ein Werk, das uns Seite für Seite ins Staunen versetzt.
240 Seiten, ca. 300 Abbildungen, Format 24,5 x 30,5 cm, Hardcover mit Schutzumschlag
Fleming College and the Royal Ontario Museum are teaming up with photographer/educator Neil Ever Osborne to offer a degree program in Environmental Visual Communications. This program is designed as a blend of environmental science skills and the ability to effectively communicate to a variety of audiences.
If you are passionate about our planet and want to develop your career in getting this message out visually and effectively, then explore this unique program.
Conservation photography has grown into a effective means of education and change. The work that is being done now to illuminate the concerns of our planet is being done by committed people that grew this idea out of the ground. Organizations like iLCP support this important work.
Watch this video to learn where these ideas come from and the people that are teaching us about the work we all share as stewards of the Earth.

March is a great time to head to the Skagit Flats. One of my favorite subjects is the tens of thousands of snow geese that have migrated from Siberia and the North Slope down to the rich fields of the Skagit River Valley. There are also thousands of trumpeter and tundra swans. An interesting note, over the decades that I’ve been going to photograph in Skagit Valley, the population of trumpeter swans has mushroomed. Climate change has affected the spring melt in Alaska at earlier times in the spring which opens up more lakes. A couple of trumpeter swans need a lake to themselves, with no other swans, to raise their brood. More lakes means more swans. Skagit Valley’s tilled fields offer a feast to these migrating birds, and you can see thousands of geese just a few feet away. In the late afternoon on a clear day it is magical as the birds light off the ground and swirl in the air all the while Mt. Baker, a volcanic mountain in the Cascades that boasts an elevation over 10,000 feet, looms in the background. As the sun sets, everything goes pink. It is one of my favorite places to go in Washington State, and March is the perfect time to go.
