"Eye on the Wild: Conservation Photographer Suzi Eszterhas"
Award-winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas is one of the only women in her competitive, adventure-filled industry. Eszterhas specializes in documenting the family life of endangered species, and travels around the world photographing wild newborns including lions, cheetahs, tigers, gorillas, orangutans, penguins, bears, and sea otters. At this Science Pub, Eszterhas will share memorable anecdotes, technical expertise, and ridiculously cute images from her work photographing animal families in their wild habitats. Hear how she composes photos while riding an elephant in India, how she keeps herself safe while working with grizzly bears, how the animals respond to her and her camera, and how her photography can help raise awareness of the problems facing wildlife today.
A fellow of the prestigious International League of Conservation Photographers, Suzi Eszterhas' work has been featured on the cover of Time magazine, and in Ranger Rick, National Geographic Kids, In Your Big Backyard, as well as on ABC.com and Today.com. She is the author of the Eye on the Wild series, a set of six books for children featuring stunning photographs and informative text. Cheetah, Gorilla, Lion, Brown Bear, Sea Otter, and Orangutan each follow one species from birth to adulthood through the lens of Suzi's camera. Eszterhas also leads photography tours around the world.
