About the photographer:

Pat Ulrich earned a Ph.D. in environmental engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, after completing his Bachelor of Science degree in physics at Penn State University.  A self-taught photographer, Pat spent most of his free time in graduate school exploring the coastal parklands of California and photographing the wildlife and wild lands of the Golden State, especially
Point Reyes National Seashore. After completing his doctorate, Pat and his wife relocated to the Boston area in Massachusetts, where he is a member of the teaching faculty at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. After developing his initial photographic vision on the west coast, he's excited to spend his free time exploring and photographing the beauty of New England’s wildlife and coastal seascapes.

Pat is passionately dedicated to the conservation of our environment, and his love of all things natural comes through in his images. In addition to the direct conservation actions we can (and should) all take, Pat believes that a conservation message spreads through education and inspiration, and that a photograph can be a powerful tool to deliver that message. Pat’s goal is to connect his viewers with the subjects he photographs, and to inspire them to get out and enjoy nature and protect our beautiful planet.


Pat’s images have appeared in conservation publications and on websites for organizations including the California State Parks Foundation, Point Blue Conservation Science (formerly PRBO Conservation Science), Point Reyes National Seashore Association, Ocean Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, and Naturalia AC. He was also a contributing photographer to Gary Crabbe's excellent book, Photographing California, Vol. 1 - North. His photographs have been recognized in a variety of contests, including a second place finish in the 2010 Defenders of Wildlife contest and a Highly Honored selection in the 2011 Nature's Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards competition.
