Tom Blagden

2021 NANPA Environmental Impact Award Recipient

Tom’s devotion to land protection and conservation issues is evident in his body of work, focused primarily on Maine, South Carolina, Costa Rica, and—more recently—the Grand Canyon. Three of Tom’s 10 books won national book awards, and his photographs have graced the covers of Smithsonian, Audubon, Outdoor Photographer, Nature Conservancy, and Sierra. A Fellow of both the International League of Conservation Photographers and NANPA, and also a NANPA member since its founding, Tom leads photography trips rafting the Grand Canyon. He is a graduate of The Hotchkiss School, CT, and Harvard University.
