EXTREME VISUAL JOURNALIST & NATURE HISTORIAN
In an age of social media persuasion and digital decadence, one nature historian is documenting history with a natural veracity, through the truth of a lens.
Environmentalist, animal scientist, indigenous patron, coveted keynote speaker, author, historian and National Geographic stalwart, Jason Edwards has redefined documentary photography for more than 20 years.
ART AND SCIENCE IN NATURE
Jason Edwards is a Natural History photographer based in Melbourne Australia.
Jason’s National Geographic image portfolio ranks amongst the largest of any photographer in the Societies long history.
His many honours include the Eureka Prize for Science Photography twice, PromaxBDA Golden Muse, Communication Arts Photography Annual, and the Australian Geographic Society inaugural 'Pursuit of Excellence Award’ award "for his extreme efforts and absolute commitment to obtaining rare and amazing photographs.”
Jason’s fine art prints are archived in private collections around the world and have been exhibited in the USA, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Europe, where National Geographic at the prestigious Visa Pour L’Image Photojournalism Festival also presented his compelling imagery of Alang.
His commissioned assignments having taken him to dozens of countries and to every continent, the resultant work has appeared in hundreds of publications including National Geographic Magazine, BBC Wildlife, Australian Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Conde Nast Traveler, and The New Yorker.
With an Honours degree in the Bachelor of Applied Science in Scientific Photography and tertiary qualifications in the Animal Sciences, Jason is an author of science education books, and his imagery has appeared in everything from environmental campaigns to Hollywood blockbusters.
