National Geographic Photographer, Paul Nicklen

In the video below, I interview award-winning National Geographic photographer, Paul Nicklen, at his home in Vancouver Island, British Columbia via Skype. Known for his incredibly powerful wildlife photography, often in the Polar regions, as well as his passionate Ted2011 talk, I had been seeking this interview for Fear No ART for several months. I believe the work that Paul does is so important in getting out information on the current state of our oceans, which he discusses in the interview.

Please enjoy this video and share this information with your friends. Paul talks about how he became a photographer for National Geographic, the trick to getting his incredible close-ups with extermely dangerous animals, and an easy, but key, mindset change that we can all make to positively affect our planet.
