Peter Essic Bio:

Recently named one of the 40 most influential nature photographers in the world by Outdoor Photography Magazine, Peter Essick has traveled extensively over the last two decades photographing spectacular natural areas from around the world.

He is a working photojournalist, but his photographs move beyond mere documentation revealing in careful compositions the spiritual and emotional aspects of nature. The unique and sometimes surprisingly similar forms and color of divergent pristine lands provide the raw material for Essick’s art.

As a counterpoint, Essick has also photographed many environmental issues, portraying both the human impact of development as well as the enduring power of the land.

Essick has been a frequent contributor to National Geographic Magazine for 25 years. At the Geographic he has produced 40 feature articles on many different topics. Some of his favorite and most rewarding stories have been on Inner Japan, the American wilderness, the carbon cycle, global warming, and global freshwater. Recent stories include a June, 2010 cover story on Greenland, a story on the Ansel Adams Wilderness in October, 2011, and a story titled Fertilizing the World in May, 2013.

He has a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Southern California and a master’s degree in photojournalism from the University of Missouri. He lives in Stone Mountain, GA with his wife, Jackie and son, Jalen.
