Suzi Eszterhas, award-winning wildlife photographer and author, UCSC alum and former Santa Cruz resident, will bring her fascinating stories and beautiful wildlife photography to Santa Cruz on June 3, 2015 at 7pm in the Santa Cruz County Veterans Memorial Building.
In this presentation, Suzi will provide glimpses into the life of a wildlife photographer. Part artist, part scientist, and part sociologist, Suzi describes the skills one needs to be successful in this unique field. She tells how she composes photos while riding an elephant in India, how she keeps herself safe while working with grizzly bears, and how her photography can help raise awareness of the problems facing wildlife today.
Suzi has many photographs and adventure stories to share: photographing cheetahs while living in a bush camp in Kenya's Masai Mara, working with polar bear biologists in the Arctic, chasing chimpanzees through some of the world's deepest jungles, photographing sea otters in Monterey Bay, and more!
