Sunday Morning: Taking an ordinary moment and elevating it to the iconic

“Joel Sartore is a photographer for the National Geographic. He will take 30,000 photos in a year to come up with three or four keeper photos.  Sartore has also been working on a 20-year protect called The Photo Ark, taking studio-style photos of animals to document biodiversity and call attention to endangered species. ‘The goal is for people to look these species in the eye and get them to care while there’s still time,’ said Sartore, described as a modern-day Noah.  He has photographed more than 2,650 species  and he believes ‘for many of Earth’s creatures, time is running out.  Half of the world’s plant and animal species will soon be threatened with extinction.’  Sartore believes he’ll have 5,000 to 6,000 photos of animals in The Photo Ark by the time he’s finished.”  Inspirational “Charles Kuralt” Sunday Morning-like clip.

Good Sunday Morning.

  1. Yup, that’s why.


  2. Sunday Mornings..Charles Kuralt – some of my favorite human interest stories. These pictures are amazing. Having zero talent in photography, I can only marvel at how each frame is moving – be it delight or wonder or sorrow or fear…Fantastic David – Happy Sunday.


    • I have less than zero talent in photography so I find all of this amazing. I guess what was lost on me is how many shots it takes to get just the right one. Excellence is effort and mastery. Happy Sunday to you too Mimi


  3. I LOVE THE INSPIRATION OFFERED IN THIS VIDEO! Thank you David for this Sunday morning boost.



  4. Thank you so much for this, David. Too many words to sort them all out.


  5. Good Sunday morning,David! This man’s passion is contagious. I wonder how many times they had to re-line the backdrop until the chimp was satisfied.


  6. I like that man, yes, I do…thanks David. 🙂


  7. Bangin’ on the ‘like’ button here, David, and hoping against hope that, as you suggest, it will eventually change to *love*. What an amazing clip and what an incredible talent! I, like you, had little idea that it took *that* many shots to find ‘the one.’ Incredible–thanks for sharing…


  8. There’s a guy that knows his “why”. Amazing shots!


  9. Loved this.
