Photo by @petekmuller. two rising sophomores from saint benedict's prep school rest in the grass during school's annual wilderness expedition. each year, as an enshrined rite of passage, the outgoing freshman class must complete a grueling five-day, 55-mile hike along the appalachian trail. “the experience teaches kids to help one another,” explains edwin leahy, the school’s headmaster. “it creates a sense of community that is frequently not taught to young men. it’s this rugged individualism that gets communicated.” the all boys’ prep school in newark, new jersey aims to impart an emotionally aware and expressive form of masculine identity. “if young guys don’t find constructive means of expression, their anger either gets expressed outwardly in poor behavior or inward as self destruction,” leahy adds. #boyhood #gender #masculinity #hiking #appalachiantrail #sbp #saintbenedicts #newjersey #newark

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio kamchatka brown bears are the largest carnivorans in eurasia. here photographed emerging from steam in the valley of the geysers in russia's kamchatka peninsular. the first europeans who went to kamchatka observed that the bears here were relatively harmless compared to their siberian counterparts. however, in 2008, a platinum mining community in the region was besieged by a sleuth of bears who killed two guards and prevented workers from leaving their homes. kamchatka remained closed to soviet citizens until 1989 and to foreigners until 1990 and the bear population thrived to that point, but since the demise of the soviet union and the opening up of the region to mineral exploitation and international trophy hunting, the bear population has been put under pressure. follow @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material. @simonnorfolkstudio @instituteartist @michaelhoppengallery @benrubi_gallery @galleryluisotti @natgeo @thephotosociety #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #igtravel #onassignment @world_wildlife #bear #kamchatka #камчатка #wildlife

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo i am working on a @natgeo jaguar story. here is a jaguar running to a caiman it hopes to eat for dinner. jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. found from us / mexico border to northern argentina. jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. in the past many ranchers would k**l the cats when they ate their cattle. today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. so the jaguar population is increasing. but revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for asian traditional medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “when the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid my first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo jaguar story 20 years ago! it has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. they give us 75% of the fresh water. if we can save the forest of the amazon and other areas in central and south america for the jaguar and puma. the forests of central africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. and the forests of south asia for the tigers and leopards. if you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them. so if - we save big cats we can help save ourselves. national geographic launched the big cats initiative to raise awareness and implement change to the dire situation facing big cats. please visit causeanuproar.org to find other ways to become involved to save big cats! #follow me @stevewinterphoto to see more images from my work with @natgeo and thanks!! @stevewinterphoto @natgeo @nglive #nglive #natgeochannel @natgeochannel @natgeowild #natgeowild @thephotosociety #ngcreative @natgeocreative #fursforlife #wildlifeconservation #inthefield #wildlifephotojournalism #bci #bigcatsintiative #photooftheday #beauty #startwith1thing @projetooncafari @refugioecologicocaiman @pantheracats @pantanalsafaris

Photo by @woods_galimberti @gabrielegalimbertiphoto - jersey. a guide with jersey walk adventures leads a group of tourists for a “moonwalk,” on a patch of seabed that can only be explored at low tide. the british crown dependency of jersey experiences tides of up to ten meters, some of the world’s most dramatic, exposing kilometers of land that are covered by the ocean the rest of the time. #jersey #tide #walk #moonwalk #lowtide #ocean

Video by @joelsartore | fez, the three-banded armadillo from the lincoln children's zoo (@lincolnchildrenszoo) searches our photo studio for tasty tidbits such as grubs and other treats. in his native brazil, he would be bustling about the forest floor searching through leaf litter, dining as he sniffs along with a hard, protective shell on his back. the three-banded armadillo can close its shell the tightest of all of the armadillos, which comes in handy if they run into any predators in the wild. #follow @joelsartore to see more cool animals! #armadillo

Photo by @stephenwilkes: in 2013, i had the incredible opportunity to capture president obama's second inauguration. it was an overwhelming day, with estimates of 1 million people in attendance. i spent 20+ hours--from setup to breakdown--above the sea of waving flags in a scissor lift. as planes landed at ronald reagan airport gusts of wind shook the lift, threatening to blur my exposures. the final image was worth the stress and more as i was able to create an image that captures the sentiments of the day, and years, of obama's continued presidency. for further details on this print, including how to obtain a copy, contact info@stephenwilkes.com. #daytonight #stephenwilkes #inauguration #obama #taschen #brycewolkowitzgallery #artitled #peterfettermangallery #monroegallery

Photo by corey arnold @arni_coraldo america's national symbol, the bald eagle, is not always the stoic postal service mascot fearlessly plucking salmon from the pristine rivers of alaska that many of us imagine. i found this eagle scavenging old fish from the deck of a p*****k trawler and many others rooting through garbage dumpsters around town. reality can be easily overshadowed by what we believe to be true. this eagle is not blind but instead captured mid-blink. i'll be spending the next month in the aleutian islands exploring the relationship between industry and nature adding to my eagle-centric series #aleutiandream . follow the journey here and learn about upcoming exhibitions at @arni_coraldo #blind #american #baldeagle #symbol #leader #america #alaska #eagle

In the forest high above the canyons of utah, clint mecham a predator specialist from the state of utah dept of natural resources, gently lowers a sedated mountain lion onto the forest floor. for more than 30 years he's consistently collected data from lion across the entire state, and collared in excess of 400 mountain lion, allowing both the health and numbers of lion present to be accurately monitored by researchers. to see more of my personal work and projects follow me @chancellordavid @natgeo

Photo by @franslanting flying home to california, i saw more snow cover on the sierra nevada than i’ve seen in many years, thanks to the recent storms that have pummeled the state. it’s great for skiers, and great for all the creatures that depend on spring runoff into our streams. the long-term drought prospects may not have changed, but it’s a great relief for the time being. follow me to see more images of what winter weather does to the golden state. @natgeotravel @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #sierranevada

Photo by @andy_mann // while out searching for new dive sites off selvagem pequena island, a remote archipelago 200 miles off the coast of western sahara, we observed this seemingly random wave rise from the depths. a true sea monster. we decided to have a look under it and quickly found an amazing sea-mount full of life. always expect the unexpected at sea. photographed on expedition with @natgeopristineseas, whose efforts have officially helped to protect this special place.
