Ranger Rick
Photo Editor
As the Photo Editor of Ranger Rick magazine (and Photo Director of all the National Wildlife Federation’s children’s publications), I have the COOLEST job. I get to find and pick all the really neat photographs in our kids’ magazines. Who wouldn’t want to be able to learn all about animals by looking at the world’s best photos of them every day? I work with many of the top photographers in the world, who love our magazines because they know they are reaching curious kids and teaching them about important things. Many of these photographers read Ranger Rick as kids, too, and remember. It would be really cool to actually go where all these animals live – but I will leave that to all those tough photographers out there. As a professional photographer for 25 years, I rarely photographed a bird, mammal or plant. Rather, my focus was heads of state, the US congress (reptiles of a sort), political campaigns and other happenings around the world as a staff photographer for Newsweek magazine. In later years, I freelanced for a broad range of editorial publications, evolving naturally to this important arena.
