I’m a travel and wildlife photographer with National Geographic who photographed all of the U.S. national parks—AMA!
EDIT: Thanks so much for your questions! I had a lot of fun answering them. I so appreciate your interest and support of the national parks, and I hope I've inspired you to visit a new one sometime this year. I've gotta run now...thank you!
Hi Reddit! I'm Jonathan Irish, a professional travel and wildlife photographer with Nat Geo. For the centennial of the U.S. park service, I photographed all of the U.S. national parks on-assignment for Nat Geo. I lived in an Airstream trailer, traveled to the far corners of the U.S., and shot over 300K photos that year! It was a dream assignment for this self-described national park fanatic. You can see the project website here, and you can also find me on Instagram where I post about images from my travels and assignments. Thanks for joining me today to talk about our beloved national parks as we get ready to celebrate the National Park Service’s birthday this weekend! AMA.
