Professional photographer, TV host, photography teacher, conservationist and artist
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.

Today we celebrate one of the more iconic and often symbolic creatures of the animal kingdom; the elephant. Long revered for their size (African elephants weigh as much as 22,000 pounds) and intelligence, elephants are one of the few species to use tools and employ cohesive teamwork.

A few spots still remain for the Palouse workshop coming up August 25th through the 28th! Join me as we capture the rolling landscape and old-world feel of this beautiful location. Wheat-topped hills and sporadic old barns compose a landscape seemingly frozen in time. The purity of the landscape, untouched by the modern irrigation systems Read more...

Would like to join this workshop Art, but now we are helping renovate our 100 year old traditional Japanese home. It's been over 25 years since I last saw you in the rainforest in Central America. Would be nice to meet up on a cross roads again, enjoy a camp fire, or some sushi. The very best to you, team mates:):):)

Katmai is the gift that keeps on giving! The abundant salmon means an abundance of bears. When photographing through the churning waters, it’s tough to tell just how brilliantly scarlet the fish are. I was also able to take to the skies and photograph thousands of walruses on the pristine shores of Bristol Bay. Then, Read more...
