Ami Vitale is a Nikon Ambassador and National Geographic magazine photographer who has traveled to over 90 countries, witnessing not just violence and conflict, but also surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. She’s lived in mud huts, war zones, contracted malaria, and even worn a panda suit to stay true to her philosophy of ‘living the story’. In 2009, after shooting a powerful story on the transport and release of one of the world’s last white rhinos, Ami shifted her focus to today’s most compelling wildlife and environmental stories. Her work has been commissioned by nearly every international publication and exhibited around the world in museums and galleries.
