Russell Graves 400w copyJoin us online to learn Natural Storytelling: Your Guide to the Ultimate Wildlife Photo Essay, presented by Russell Graves.

Says Russell, “Photo essays use many images combined with minimal text to present information in a narrative fashion. They are becoming increasingly popular forms of journalism and are a great way for non-journalist photographers to tell a fantastic story utilizing several images.”

Russell, a long-time photojournalist, will take you through the methods he utilizes when producing wildlife photo essays, If you’ve read any Texas-based magazines over the past 25 years chances are you’ve seen some of Russell’s photos, movies or read some of his words.  Since 1989, he’s been traveling the state telling authentic Texas stories with his camera and his words – both written and spoken.

A graduate of Dodd City High School and East Texas State University, Russell was an agricultural science teacher in Childress for 16 years where he was named Texas Agriscience Teacher of the Year on three occasions. He lives with his family on a farm near Dodd City, in Fannin County, northeast of the DFW Metroplex.
