Telluride Photo Festival: Ian Shive featured all weekend

Shive_mt_yellowstonenp_1008_0816 The 2nd annual Telluride Photo Festival is underway. The event, which runs from September 26 – October 2, targets professional and experienced amateur photographers with a menu of activities that includes workshops, seminars, symposiums, portfolio reviews and exhibits. And since it’s Telluride, home to Mountainfilm and eco-crusaders, founder Eric Moore puts the emphasis on conservation photography, such as the work of Ian Shive.

On Friday, September 30, Photo Fest hosts a screening of Ian’s documentary, “Wild Life: A New Generation of Wild.” Ian appears on two panels, one on conservation photography and a second about the use of still photography for environmental activism. He also plans to be on hand for a book-signing at Between the Covers bookstore, also Friday. (Check Photo Fest’s website for exact details.)

Isphoto Ian Shive, 33, is an award-winning conservation photographer, author, film producer and environmental advocate. He embodies the revolution surging through the world of photography, specifically the adventure art form , whose mission is not only to portray, but also convey stories about our planet’s wild places and its inhabitants through images.

In a relatively short time, Ian has earned a reputation as a leading chronicler of America’s greatest treasures, its National Parks. His work has appeared around the world in hundreds of publications, including National Geographic, Outside and Men’s Journal, on TV, in films and exhibits. And Ian is racking up awards, including most recently, the prestigious Sierra Club 2011 Ansel Adams Award for Conservation Photography.
