Multimedia Reportage for TNC

Ian Shive recently did double duty for the latest cover of The Nature Conservancy magazine, not only photographing the story but also shooting all of the video for the project which is now featured as a major initiative for TNC known as Outside Voices. For this piece, Ian conducted in-depth interviews with select individuals who had a unique perspective on what conservation means in their local area. One of the most fascinating profiles was with Mike Monroe whose family has lived on a piece of the Cumberland Plateau for many generations. Ian conducted all interviews and cinematography. Editing was done internally at TNC.
