Wendy Shattil

With her partner Bob Rozinski, Wendy Shattil has co-authored over a dozen books during the course of her decades-long career. However, it took a long time for her to become a full-time conservation photographer.

“Bob and I both had full-time jobs,” Wendy explained in an interview with Outdoor Photographer. “Nevertheless, we spent an average of 40 hours each week on our photography. Every weekend and vacation we were in the field photographing, and every weeknight we kept busy submitting images and conducting lectures.”

Focusing on threatened species in North America, Wendy and Bob were named Conservationists of the Year by the Colorado Wildlife Federation, and are Fellows of the International League of Conservation Photography.
