Photographer Art Wolfe’s work caught my eye because I am interested in wildlife and landscape photography. Over his career of 30 years, Art Wolfe has photographed landscapes, animals and native cultures on every continent on earth. He has published over 60 books, including some award winners. Wolfe spends 9 months a year researching and scouting areas where he will will take his photographs. He also has won countless awards and medals for his work including the Photographic Society of America’s Progress Medal. He also hosted a show on ESPN in the early 90’s called American Photo’s Safari. He also has a show that debuted in 2007 titled Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge. On his website he has a quote about him from actor Robert Redford, “Art Wolfe’s work tells a story that is overwhelming, breathtaking, and vast.” Some of the images in his site are simply amazing. Everything from his photos of animals to his landscape photos are incredible. Here is a picture of Art Wolfe and a few of my favorite images of his.
Our most recent Field Trip was to Tierra Miguel in Pauma Valley, CA. Here we saw a 85-acre farm that specializes in growing organic produce. To the date they have delivered 1,070.25 tons of their produce to schools and families in Southern California. Other classes joined us on the trip as well. While we took care of the photography and documenting, the other classes helped plant, harvest, and make salad for everyone at the end of the night. I’ve never really spent much time on a farm so this was a new experience for me. It was a beautiful day out and I’m happy with some of the shots I got. I got a workout walking around the farm, trying to cover much ground as I could. This trip was fun and it was nice to see and taste the finished product of the hard work that the people of the Tierra Miguel foundation put into the farm. Here are some my favorite photos that I took that day.
I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a snapshot of this
