In memory of Stuart Westmorland


Once again we are reminded of the impermanence of life. Stuart Westmorland was a Seattle-based photographer who came into the profession when I did; his specialty was underwater photography and I regarded him as the embodiment of the athletic photographer. He was a fixture of my photographer parties over the years and I was so pleased to be able to present him with the Art Wolfe / Best in Show Award at the 2010 International Conservation Photography Awards.

He may have lost his short battle with leukemia, but he won in life.
