On Wednesday, March 24th, take a photographic journey from the Florida Everglades to the highest mountain in North America with Ian Shive, author and photographer of the new book, The National Parks: Our American Landscape.
Shive will describe the challenge of finding new ways to document national parks that have already been photographed countless times – and how he brought a fresh perspective to that work.
Ian will explain how an aggressive marketing campaign led to the success of the top-selling title and describe how applying multimedia, social networking, and internet-based publicity were used to further develop his career in editorial and commercial photography.
Ian Shive is a Los Angeles based conservation photographer whose award-winning work has received critical acclaim nationwide. His images have appeared in numerous publications including National Geographic, Outside, Time, U.S. News & World Report, and many others. Shive presented his images and perspective on climate change at the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. for the head of the National Park Service and members of Congress.
Shive is also the host and producer of the national park travelogue series, Wild Exposure, airing on Al Gore’s Current TV cable network. He is also the co-founder of the multimedia production company, Wild Collective.
