I‘m a photographer and ecologist with a passion for telling stories at the junction of global environmental change and human culture. I believe that stories — whether in the form of film, photography, writing, or something else — have the power to persuade and motivate. That makes them crucial for protecting our wild places.
I’m a National Geographic Explorer, 2019 Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow in Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique, and a Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers. I’m represented by Nature Picture Library. I have a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University, which I completed with the help of a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Before that, I earned a BSc in Conservation and Resource Studies with an emphasis in Communicating Conservation in a Developing World from the College of Natural Resources at the University of California, Berkeley. I’ve traveled on three continents, including ten years traveling and working on wildlife and conservation projects in Africa.
Sebastian Kennerknecht is a wildlife and conservation photographer with over fourteen years of experience visually covering wildlife and environmental issues internationally, focusing in particular on wild cats. He has produced high quality editorial photographs, time-lapses, videos, and web content featured in and by the New York Times, Washington Post, BBC Wildlife, Smithsonian, The Economist, Science, and Conservation International, among others. Using highly customized SLR camera traps, along with conventional photographic techniques, he works closely with field biologists to both effectively and ethically capture photographs of some of the rarest cats on the planet while also highlighting the threats they face. Working for conservation organizations and on magazine assignments, Sebastian has photographed twenty-three of the forty species of wild felids, in twenty-nine different countries.
Sebastian graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Evolution from the University of California – Santa Cruz, won NANPA’s emerging photographer award, and is an associate fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers.
