Introduction

Over the course of his 30-year career, photographer Art Wolfe has worked on every continent and in hundreds of locations. His stunning images interpret and record the world's fast-disappearing wildlife, landscapes and native cultures, and are a lasting inspiration to those who seek to preserve them all. Wolfe’s photographs are recognized throughout the world for their mastery of color, composition and perspective. Wolfe's photographic mission is multi-faceted: art, wildlife advocacy, journalism inform his work. Wolfe has released over sixty books, including the award-winning Vanishing Act and Edge of the Earth, Corner of the Sky. His latest titles for 2011 are Dogs Make Us Human, Regard Sauvage (France) and Animal Art (Germany).

 

Art Wolfe is a member of Canon’s elite list of renowned photographers “Explorers of Light”, Microsoft’s Icons of Imaging. Magazines all over the world publish his photographs and stories, and his work is licensed for monograph retail products as well as advertising. Currently Wolfe is the host of the public television seriesArt Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge,” an intimate and upbeat series that offers unique insights on nature, culture, and the new realm of digital photography.

 

The son of commercial artists, Wolfe was born on September 13, 1951 in Seattle and still calls the city home. Wolfe spends nearly nine months a year traveling, carefully researching the locations as well as pre-visualizing the photographs he wants to take. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. He donates performances and work to environmental and educational groups every year; his lecture series is also in demand for corporate conventions and trade shows. Wolfe maintains his gallery, stock agency, production company and digital photography school in the SODO district of Seattle.

You may have heard me and several other photographers say that using a good tripod is one of the easiest ways to take your photography to the next level. While true- there are some situations where it is more practical to get the shots you want without one. Shot on location in Antarctica.

Iceland is a wonderland of volcanic landscapes and this was a great place to try out the new Canon EOS 5DS R, which is even superior to the 5DS I shot with earlier in May. This camera is not about pushing the ISO boundaries into the stratosphere, rather it’s about amazing details in the enlargement. Read more...

The abstracts, aerials, close-ups and long exposures really stretch the imagination +Art Wolfe ! But I have to say I really like the straight-on nature shots like 2, 12, 35, 50, 69 and 94 (didn't even need to double-check those!) the most.

July is high summer. I head north to Iceland, Svalbard, and Alaska, where the wildlife is feeding heartily to fatten up for winter. In the southern hemisphere, July is winter, and in tropical areas like the Brazilian Pantanal and Amazon, the photographic opportunities are endless.
