His talk on "Photographing Nature's Giants" will showcase the images and stories behind some of Nick's most impressive assignments, including his most recent work in the California Redwoods.  For the October 2009 cover story of National Geographic magazine, Nick used innovative techniques to photograph a 300-foot tall, 1,500-year-old Redwood, which will be on display in the gallery. Nick will discuss how he made this complex mosaic photograph as well as his experience photographing elephants, tigers, and gorillas all over the world. 

Nichols has produced 25 stories for National Geographic magazine, devoting his career to producing photography that effects environmental change.  His work with conservationists such as Mike Fay and Jane Goodall has resulted in many books, including Brutal Kinship, The Last Place on Earth, The Great Apes, and The Year of the Tiger, as well as the creation of 13 national parks in Africa and reforms in chimp conservation.  He is a former member of Magnum Photos, and he founded the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2007.  

He lives on Sugar Hollow Farm in Virginia with his wife, artist Reba Peck.
