How Photography
Connects Us

Grew up in an Inuit community in Canada’s Arctic- spent his early years hunting and traveling
Bachelors degree in biology
As a biologist he always had a camera, and his hobby became an all-consuming lifestyle and profession
He is a freelance photography and his work has appeared in various nature magazines
His work has taken him from tracking Stellar sea lions in the Aluetian Islands to diving with minke whales off Australia’s coral reefs
Paul Nicklen
Underwater photo-journalist who works primarily for National Geographic Magazine
His focus includes whales, tuna, sharks and nearly everything in the sea.
Started photographing shipwrecks which brought him to wildlife photography
Been featured in People, Sports Illustrated, National Wildlife, and many many others.
To him, photography is a powerful instrument for change and tries to find ways of creating images and stories to celebrate and highlight environmental problems.
Brian Skerry
A native of Alabama
Award winning photographer whose work has helped to raise awareness and funds to protect the elephants of Chad, Africa
Dubbed “the Indiana Jones of photography”
His photography training began when he was drafted into the US Army’s photography unit in the 1970s and later studied at the University of North Alabama
Michael "Nick" Nichols
Favorite Photography
Endangered species
Says it’s a matter of life and death, so the race is on the save them
Feels Photography can do a huge service in 2 ways
Expose environmental problems as nothing else can
And it can get people to care
Born in Oklahoma
Photographing for over 20 years
National Geographic has allowed him to cover everything from the Amazon rain forest to beer-drinking, mountain racing firefighters in the UK
Bachelors degree in journalism
Joel Sartore
the act of taking photographs of wildlife: a very challenging form of photography
National Geographic photographers have varying backgrounds
many are self taught
college backgrounds such as sociology, psychology, fine arts, sciences, journalism, anthropology, etc.
editors/photographers agree it's important to complete a degree in a discipline other than photography
National Geographic photographers are freelance photographers...
have college degrees in a variety of disciplines but all took photo courses
Editors/photographers agree its important to complete a degree in a discipline OTHER than photography
Freelancers come to NATGEO with at least 5 years photojournalism experience or other specializations such as wildlife, underwater, nature or aerial photography
NGM no longer employs staff photographers, only freelance
The editorial rate in the US is $400-$500 a day
consider that you don't work every day... and must pay for your own equipment and insurance and cover taxes, etc....
include side assignments and marketing your own work (books, photos from your archives, rights from your photos, etc.) to make more money
