When James Balog picks up his camera and begins to frame a shot, he sees a world in flux.
An acclaimed National Geographic photographer, videographer, and public speaker, James Balog has re-defined nature photography. He has changed the way we think about endangered animals and ignited discussions around the importance of protecting North America’s Old Growth Forests — all through the snap of a camera shutter.
And most recently, Balog has turned his camera’s focus to the awe-inspiring landscapes of the world’s glaciers. By combining time-lapse photography with cutting edge science, Balog’s Extreme Ice Survey compresses time to help people understand the reality of climate change.
