Keynote Presentation | Into the Last Great Wilderness – A 25-year journey of nature photography

Florian Schulz

For more than 25 years, Florian Schulz has followed his passion for nature
photography. The results of his efforts are not only stunning photographs but also
entire conservation campaigns.

An internationally recognized photographer, his images have been published in National Geographic, GEO, BBC Wildlife, and CNN recently featured his conservation work. He is the author of several books published by Braided River, including Yellowstone to Yukon – Freedom to Roam, To The Arctic, and The Wild Edge – Freedom to Roam the Pacific Coast.

Schulz won numerous awards including “Environmental Photographer of the Year,” Sierra Club’s “Ansel Adams Award,” amongst others. He was awarded the 2006 Philip Hyde Environmental Grant by NANPA and received NANPA’s first Vision Award in 2008.

Today Schulz brings the wild side of our amazing planet closer to diverse audiences in Europe and North America, reaching thousands of people through his life talks. In a new era, where film and photography are merging, he has recently evolved as a producer in nature filmmaking, shooting in the highest standards of cinema quality. The result: outstanding film sequences, rarely witnessed before. Schulz is finalizing his first feature documentary about The Arctic Refuge. He lives with his wife Emil and boys Nanuk (6) and Silvan (3) between Anchorage, Alaska and La Paz in Baja (Mexico).
