Boyd Norton travels extensively in documenting the world's wild places and environmental issues, a specialty he has pursued as a photographer and writer for more than forty-five years. Outdoor Photography Magazine U.K. has called him "One of the 40 most influential nature photographers from around the globe."
For most of his photographic and writing career, Norton has
devoted a great amount of time to conservation issues and the
preservation of wilderness and wildlife worldwide. He played a key
role in establishment of several wilderness areas in the Rocky
Mountains, new national parks in Alaska, and in the designation of
Siberia's Lake Baikal as a World Heritage Site. Among his many
awards, he received commendation from the Environmental Protection
Agency, presented by Robert Redford, for his "important, exciting
environmental photography and writing." Currently he is founder of
Serengeti Watch, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting
the vast Serengeti ecosystem and its wildlife from destructive
developments. He is the author and photographer of 16 books,
ranging in topics from African elephants and mountain gorillas to
Alaska wilderness, Siberia's Lake Baikal and the Serengeti
ecosystem. Norton's articles and photo essays have appeared in most
major magazines including Time, National Geographic,
Smithsonian, Audubon, Natural History, Sierra, The New York Times,
Geo, Popular Photography, Outdoor Photographer, Conde Nast's
Traveler, Outside, Stern, Reader's Digest, and a great many
more around the world. When he's not in the wilds of Borneo or
Siberia or Africa, he calls Evergreen, CO, home.
