“Suzi Eszterhas possesses the two essential qualities of a superlative wildlife photographer: a great eye and infinite patience.”
– Cary Winfrey, former editor-in-chief, Smithsonian
Award-winning wildlife conservation photographer Suzi Eszterhas is one of the only women in her competitive, adventure-filled industry. She specializes in documenting the family life of endangered species. Based in California, Eszterhas spends several months each year in the field, photographing animals from the poles to the tropics and is well known for her unprecedented work with newborns, including lions, cheetahs, tigers, gorillas, organutans, penguins, bears and sea otters.
Eszterhas will be in the Cambridge/Boston area on Friday and Saturday, April 24-25 during April School Vacation Week to celebrate the Cambridge Science Festival; bring your kids and family to her events at the Cambridge Public Library, Porter Square Books and Museum of Science to hear her talk about “Living the Wild Life: Stories from a Wildlife Photographer.” She’ll share memorable anecdotes, technical expertise, and ridiculously cute images from her work photographing animal families in their wild habitats. Hear how she composes photos of tiger dens while riding on elephant-back in India, how she keeps herself safe while working with grizzly bears, how the animals respond to her and her camera, and how wildlife photography can help raise awareness of the problems facing wildlife today.
Eszterhas is also the author of the new Eye on the Wild series, a series of eight books for children -- Elephant, Tiger, Gorilla, Cheetah, Brown Bear, Sea Otter, Orangutan, Lion -- featuring stunning photographs and informative text. Each book follows one species from birth to adulthood through the lens of Suzi’s camera.
Much of her work has been published in Smithsonian, Ranger Rick, National Geographic Kids, and TIME magazines, as well as on Good Morning America and TODAY online. She is a fellow of the presitigious Internaitonal League of Conservation Photographers and leads photograph tours around the world.
