When people come into my home, the first thing they comment on is my orange refrigerator. The second comment is about how many photographs live on my walls. I have been collecting signed prints for the past 10 years and have a collection of close to 100. These range in style from reportage to fine art and vary in size from 4×6 to 16×20. This passion began from photography flash sales which is a great way to start collecting. To own a signed print from a world-renowned photographer for $100 is rare and exciting. However, that excitement soon turns to panic when I have to find a place on my walls!
With a social reach of over 3 million followers on Instagram, a passion for conservation, and knowing a bit about pesto and pasta, Nat Geo Creative photographer and influencer Paul Nicklen was a perfect partner for Barilla’s campaign “While the Water Boils”.
While the Water Boils is an ongoing campaign and digital series by Barilla USA, managed by Edelman and United Entertainment Group (UEG) who originally reached out to partner with Nicklen. While on location in Laguna Beach and Los Angeles, Nicklen chatted with host Hannah Hart to discuss his passion for conservation, art, science and photography!
We are thrilled to share the campaign and to have been a part of the project from creative brief to campaign launch!
In honor of Endangered Species Day last Friday, photographer Joel Sartore, in partnership with the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), launched a groundbreaking campaign aimed at saving species at risk in the wild featuring Sartore’s Photo Ark image collection. Sartore’s breathtaking portraits inspire people to care about these animals and to take action while there’s still time to protect them. The goal of the #SaveTogether campaign is to move people to support the Photo Ark and projects working to help save species. NYC kicked off the campaign16+ billboards featuring Photo Ark images for a full hour in Times Square.
Sartore has photographed more than 6,500 species so far on his quest to create the National Geographic Photo Ark. Once completed, the Photo Ark will serve as an important record of each animal’s existence and a powerful testament to the importance of saving species.
These stunning studio portraits of our planet’s precious species are all available for licensing. Visit the image collection here.
Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about the importance of protecting at risk wildlife. National Geographic Creative photographers are constantly on the front lines, bridging the gap between animals and humans. They bring critical issues to the forefront of conservation efforts and encourage actions that can help protect species that face extinction.

Photographer Alex Treadway travelled to remote corners of Nepal to photograph patients and their care givers in rustic healthcare settings. His images accompany text that is also available for licensing by Dr. Mark Zimmerman. Zimmerman weaves the storylines of a rural woman desperately in need of a caesarean section, a memorial organization that has worked since 2006 to rehabilitate Nepal’s government hospitals, and his own unlikely journey from America to spending his medical career in the Himalayan land.
“28 million people (7 million more than Florida), live scattered across the remote, rugged landscape, many of their houses affixed like postage stamps to the flanks of mountains. While more than 80% of the population lives in rural areas, the country’s doctors crowd into the capital Kathmandu and other cities. Apart from a few scattered mission hospitals, the burden of the rural healthcare falls to the government of Nepal.”
