2006 Photographers

The wildlife, plant and landscape images from the 2006 Pro-Tour represent the work of 17 of the world’s finest nature photographers and were taken over the course of 30 intense, sweaty and challenging 18-hour days. This beautiful photography represents long hours of careful stalking, patient observation and painstaking camera work and editing. Photographers settled into position well before dawn and again in in the late afternoon to capture their subjects with the best possible lighting. A hot, unusually dry spring made photographing naturally shy, nocturnal mammals even more challenging than usual. ICF is grateful for the commitment of the 2006 Pro-Tour particpanting photographers and landowners.
