New Notecards

For the traditionalists out there who still send letters the charming, old-fashioned way, we have some new notecards that just came out.  We especially like the plantable wildflower and world’s children cards.

Many of you may have seen the full page print ad in today’s newspapers, including the New York Times and Seattle Times. The ad features my image of a ruddy shelduck with ducklings, which I photographed in Mongolia several years ago. Talk about getting all your ducks in a row!

2010 – Year In Review


2010 started off with successful workshops in Southeast Asia.

I had special photo shoots for Epson and local Seattle television, as well as a pledge for Oregon Public Broadcasting.  I emceed a very profitable fundraising event for the Puget Soundkeepers Alliance, an organization that is working hard to keep the Puget Sound a viable and functioning ecosystem.

The International Conservation Photography Awards were kicked off with a special event at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall and then opened to great applause at the Burke Museum, which will host the event again in 2012.

I had gallery openings at the G2 in California and the Saxton Gallery in Ohio.  In my own gallery I opened the show “Unbridled”, featuring beautiful oversized prints of horses.

Throughout the year education continued to be a focus, with the Art of Composition tour and a four day workshop in the Grand Tetons. I taught a session at the Welt der Wunder Festival in Germany as well.

Wherever I went, I shot:  New York, California, at home in Washington State, including the Pride Parades in Seattle and Vancouver, BC.

Hinduism’s massive festival, the Kumbh Mela, was in Haridwar this year.  It was a crush of millions of people, it was oppressively hot, and infinitely fascinating and life-affirming.

In 2010 my public television show Travels to the Edge won five Telly Awards for excellence, and in October the Photographic Society of America honored me with the Progress Medal Award.  Outdoor Photographer magazine thrilled me by using my photo of the French Alps as the 25th anniversary cover.  Outdoor Photography magazine in the UK lauded me and 39 of the best nature photographers in the world for our conservation work.

I finished the year in Michoacan, Mexico, photographing the Day of the Dead festival for the first time and then headed off to Antarctica for the umpteenth time in December.

I wish everyone a healthy & prosperous 2011!
