Ronan Donovan

Photographer & Filmmaker
Born at home into the house his father built in rural Vermont, Ronan Donovan has spent his adult years immersed in the natural world. A biologist turned photographer and film-maker, he spent 2011 in the canopy studying wild chimpanzees in Uganda, through Harvard University. The experience inspired his desire to use visual storytelling as a way to reach a greater audience. Ronan's photographic journeys include weeks filming puffins on a remote island in Scotland and, recently, an entire year living inside Yellowstone National Park documenting the live of wolves for National Geographic magazine. His photographs have hung on the walls of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and his film work has aired on PBS Nature. When Ronan isn’t working, he’s exploring the mountains around his home in western Montana.
