Joel Sartore is a freelance photographer for National Geographic. His most recent project is called the Biodiversity Project, and the idea behind it is to promote animal conservation. Joel has has gathered nearly 1,800 photographs of animals species over the past five years, with many more planned in the coming months.
Joel’s quest for photos led him to the Fort Worth Zoo. You can see video footage and photographs of the shoot here. The photography features animals on a solid white or black background. The idea behind this is to give all animals equal weight…from the ladybug to the lion. The photography is beautiful, and the video is captivating and inspirational.
