FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS

 

Photographer Justin Sullivan is seen here seeking a low angle while covering the Camp Fire of 2018. “Being with a group that is well trained and understands how to navigate these dangerous fires is so important to me,” Sullivan says. “Being in a car with someone when you’re driving down roads that have fire on both sides with trees and power lines falling all around is so much better than trying to navigate it on your own.” Photo by Noah Berger.

 

Freelance photographer Noah Berger has spent 24 years covering the San Francisco Bay Area for editorial, corporate and government clients. He works for national and international news outlets including the Associated Press, Reuters, San Francisco Chronicle and LA Times. On the corporate side, Noah covers transportation and infrastructure for government agencies and works often with health care organizations. A native of New York, Noah lives in Alameda – an island across the bay from San Francisco – with his wife and 9-year-old son.


Renée C. Byer is a catalyst for change. She is an award-winning documentary photojournalist and Emmy nominated multimedia field producer best known for her in-depth work focusing on the disadvantaged and those who otherwise would not be heard. Her ability to produce photographs with profound emotional resonance and sensitivity earned her the Pulitzer Prize for feature photography in 2007 and dozens of national and international honors, including the World Understanding Award from Pictures of the Year International, and Pulitzer Finalist in 2013.

Known for her ability to translate stark statistics into images that connect us to our humanity, she has traveled throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, covering some of the most important issues of our time. Byer’s stories have deepened our understanding of the environment, climate change, extreme poverty, genetically modified food, healthcare, women at war, domestic violence, and the drought and economic crisis in California.

Big Bend National Park - Multi Day Adventure

  • Location: Big Bend National Park, TX
  • Time: All Day

Cost: $400 Studnet | $450 Guest 

Depart time: Saturday, November 23 @ 5:00 PM       

Return time: Sunday, December 1 @ 8:00 PM 

Drive time: 20 h

Pre-trip meeting: Tuesday, November 19 @ 8:00 PM 

Included: River permits, boats, gear, dinner on the river, camping, transportation & hotel accommodations

Located in West Texas, Big Bend will allow you to enjoy dark night skies with beautiful starry views and rivers that carve awe-inspiring canyons in the limestone walls. You can expect sunny and 75 degree days, which will be a welcomed change from the chilly November days of Kentucky. You might just get lucky and spot some mule deer, coyotes, or foxes while in the park(from a safe distance of course).  On this multi-day adventure, you will get to float down the Rio Grande relaxing on a two to four-day river trip through Boquillas Canyon. The rapids in this 33-mile journey only rate up to Class II. Camping a couple of nights by the soothing sounds of the river, and marveling at the 1,200-foot canyon walls, allow time to forget the daily distractions of life. As you travel down the canyon, notice the remains of candelilla wax mining camps on the Mexican side of the river. After our time on the river, a sunrise hike to the Miners Trail is a must. Come enjoy the beautiful sights, and sounds of this marvelously park in Texas.
