I’m Rob Sheppard and I want to help people create compelling photos as they connect with nature. I believe we all have a unique vision of and connection to nature that we can share through photography. The craft of photography is important to help your photos to communicate at their best. Great nature photography is about finding ways to create meaning in your photography and connect people with the natural world.
I have been busy over the years creating many books related to photography, including Landscape Photography: From Snapshot to Great Shot, The Magic of Digital Landscape Photography, The Magic of Digital Nature Photography, and the National Geographic Field Guide to Digital Photography. I was also the long-time editor of the prestigious Outdoor Photographer magazine.
I get around as a speaker and workshop leader, and I am a Fellow with the North American Nature Photography Association. My education was both as a photographer and a naturalist specializing in ecology and botany.
