Joel Sartore Speaking Topics

  • Life as a National Geographic Photographer

    Joel shares a lively, intimate, and humorous look at what could be the best (and worst) job in the world as he plays expedition leader, psychologist, medic, accountant, and coach, not to mention the photographer. It’s all just another day at the office when you’re on assignment for National Geographic.

  • Building The Photo Ark

    Go behind the scenes with Joel as he travels the globe to photograph the world’s most toxic, outrageous, colorful, and beautiful animals. Things can go wrong—and they often do—but getting up close and personal is what it’s all about.

  • Grounded: A Reflection on the Use of Life and Land

    When Joel Sartore’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, this National Geographic photographer who had traveled the world for 18 years knew it was time to stay home. He reconnected with his family and with why he takes pictures in the first place: to show people that wild places and creatures on Earth need and deserve protection. In each life there is the potential for a positive change, and realizing it often starts very simply.
