As a charter member of NANPA and long time Foundation Executive board member, I’m sorry to say I’ll be missing the 2011 Summit in McAllen, Texas next month, due to an upcoming trip to South Africa. The extraordinary nature and wildlife photographers that I have met during the course of my time at NANPA have made all the difference to my professional career. Many come out of the bush, literally, in order to network with colleagues and find out what’s going on within the industry. I have enjoyed working with many award winning photographers such as Frans Lanting, Art Wolfe, Christian Ziegler and others. They have been documenting different species and habitats for years, returning again and again to catch the right behavior, weather or lighting conditions at a certain time and place. Nature and wildlife photography is always a surprise and one never knows what one will return with. My years of editing these images have taught me the value of time, patience and the skill that these extraordinary photographers have. They wait for the animals to appear, displaying whatever their special behavior is, and once in awhile, they catch it just right, with the light working its magic all around. It’s these special moments that I have witnessed after the fact, but by editing so many images, I often see the complete situation, from beginning to end and I see how hard it is to get the shot!
I am fortunate to know these experienced photographers, as well as the younger, up and coming photographers whose portfolios I review at NANPA. They attend the conference, eager for information and knowledge that many of these seasoned pros share during the course of the NANPA programs and field workshops. Much of the photography that I represent exemplifies these glimpses of nature in all its glory and it’s a pleasure to have them available to clients on a worldwide scale. Lastly, Outdoor Photographer magazine recently published its list of the 40 most influential nature photographers. Congratulations to the 14 NANPA members who made that list. It’s a pleasure to know them all!
Here’s a small sample of some of the outstanding NANPA photographers we represent:

The Caribbean could be described as the official playground of the western hemisphere. Hundreds of picturesque islands, resorts and magnificent wildlife just a short plane ride away from most of North and South America. Paul Sounders captured some wonderful shots of the various activities and overall aura that envelope two of the most popular destinations: the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands. Enjoy.

Culture abounds in the central regions of the Asian continent. Colorful masks, skilled artisans and intricate costumes dominate this latest batch of imagery from Jon Warburton-Lee. India and Nepal are known as epicenters of eastern religion and methodology, and these traditions translate well through the lens.

Cape Verde sits off the western coast of Africa and consists of 10 islands boasting some of the most beautiful scenery you will fine on this planet. Crystal blue water, picturesque ports, glowing local residents and lush landscapes make up this submission from Jon Arnold. Looking at the gloomy, gray skies out of the window here in Seattle makes me want to book a ticket. If you are needing an escape, or have a feature on them, this is a great place to start.

Here in the great NW we take pride in our beautiful scenery and abundance of lush green landscapes (one of the benefits of all that rain). In Richard Duval‘s latest submission, he offers up a nice representation of what Washington and Oregon have to offer: marinas, vineyards, wineries, japanese gardens, cityscapes, fall colors, holiday scenes and much, much more. Take a peak and get a glimpse of why we all call this region home.

Brian McGilloway’s latest submission gives us a glimpse into the lives of the people of Burma (Myanmar). These images display both sides of the Asian country, the traditional dress and customs along with the tourism and souvenir stands. So if you are in need of some shots that provide a good cross section of Burma and it’s inhabitants, this is a great place to start.
