Her early life
Somethings that she does
Was born and raised in Minneapolis. She was born to a mother who wasn't discouraged by the word 'No.'
One of the first female photographers hired at National Geographic.Belt documents her peripatetic life as a photographer and mother in a new book, A Camera, Two Kids, and a Camel: My Journey in Photographs.
She helps others?
She has donated photographs to numerous environmental causes and fundraisers. She speaks and teaches regularly on environmental topics. This year alone, Belt has spoken to more than 10,000 high school and college students on the subject of Compassionate Conservation.
Since then she has photographed dozens of magazine and book projects for the Society, including NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC magazine stories on Fiordland New Zealand, Baja California, Israel’s Galilee, Petra, The San Pedro River, Barrier Islands, England’s Lake District, and the Badlands, as well having her work featured in the Geographic book National Geographic Women Photographers.
Annie's work has also appeared in LIFE, Geo, Smithsonian, Fortune, Merian, Paris Match, Stern, and many other publications. Belt also produces an annual set of pictures to help raise funding and awareness for Aid organizations including Habitat for Humanity.
She has received awards from the National Press Photographers Association, the Associated Press, the National Organization of Women, The University of Minnesota and the White House News Photographers Association. With a grant from National Geographic Society’s Expeditions Council, Belt and author Barbara Kingsolver created Last Stand: America’s Virgin Lands, a National Geographic book celebrating the last pristine wilderness in North America.
Annie didn't learn how to use a camera until she was a 21-year-old junior at the University of Minnesota. Belt earned her bachelor of arts in photojournalism from the university of Minnesota. She started her career after graduating in 1976. She has photographed in more than a hundred countries during her illustrious career.
“As a photographer I have learned that women really do hold up half the sky; that language isn’t always necessary, but touch usually is; that all people are not alike, but they do mostly have the same hopes and fears; that judging others does great harm but listening to them enriches; that it is impossible to hate a group of people once you get to know one of them as an individual.” Belt’s photographs have been exhibited in New York, Washington, Moscow, Tokyo and Perpignon. She is currently at work on a Photo-Memoir of her life on the road with her family called A Camera, Two Kids and a Camel
Belt makes her home in Great Falls, Virginia, with her husband, National Geographic senior editor Don Belt, and their two children, Lily and Charlie.
