Journey with 20 world-class wildlife photographers through the woodlands, wetlands, and prairies of the Texas Coastal Bend as their cameras capture this region’s diverse beauty. Pros from throughout North America and Europe spend 30 intense days creating breathtaking images as they compete in the 2nd bi-annual Pro-Tour photo contest.
The 300 or so full-color photographs in this second volume of the Images for Conservation Pro-Tour series give even common critters new perspective. That’s no surprise considering the varying cultures and techniques these sharp-eyed photographers – with client lists including BBC and National Geographic – bring to the table.
Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher and Texas rancher, Nolan Ryan, provides a moving introduction about the wild imagery of Texas, perfectly setting the tone for Images for Conservation: Book Two – The Coastal Bend, Texas Edition. Carter P. Smith, Executive Director of Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, writes a stirring forward paying tribute to good stewardship, while Images for Conservation founder, John F. Martin, reminds us that nature photography is a win-win situation for both landowners and wildlife. This colorful volume also includes short biographies of each photographer and a brief history of the ranch upon which he/she photographed.
