Excerpts from comments about Paul’s photography:
“In each generation of wildlife photographers, a handful emerge as the standard bearers. They show us the natural world in a way we have never seen it before. Paul Nicklen is just such a photographer. His images have presented the mysterious underwater world of the frozen deep not as an icy silent landscape but as a rambunctious, lively street scene–think of him as the first underwater ‘street’ photographer. His photography has brought us right up close to shy albatrosses, swimming polar bears, propelling penguins, massive manatees, and the elusive spirit bear–to name just a few of his subjects. Paul’s training as a biologist, his exciting presentation style and his eye-popping photos make every lecture not just an educational evening but an inspirational event for the entire audience.” – M. Mulvihill
“Had a great time. Really enjoyed the presentation! As an avid amateur photographer, Paul’s talk cured me of any desire I ever had to Shoot for National Geographic. The lengths Paul goes to to get his amazing shots are just incredible. Paul dedication to his craft, his passion for the environment and his presentation style made for an evening we will not forget for a long time.…”
