Arthur Morris is a free-lance nature photographer, teacher, and writer specializing in birds. He is widely recognized as one of the world’s premier bird photographers, photographic educators, and tour leaders. His images, published the world over, are noted for both their artistic design and their technical excellence. His fitting credit line: BIRDS AS ART. Eight of his images have been honored in various BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competitions and many more in the Nature’s Best contests.
He is a founding member of NANPA, worked extensively with the students at more than a dozen Summits, presented a keynote address in Charlotte in 2004, and is a NANPA Fellow.
His book, “The Art of Bird Photography” is the classic How-to work on the subject. The all-new follow-up, The Art of Bird Photography II (916 pages on CD only), which concentrates on the digital aspects of nature photography, was released in 2006 to rave reviews. Arthur, one of the original “Explorers of Light,” was a Canon contract photographer for the past eighteen years and currently enjoys the title Canon Explorer of Light Emeritus. After using Canon gear for 35 years he switched to Nikon early in 2018 and then to Sony in early 2020. He is a co-founding publisher of BirdPhotographers.Net: honest critiques done gently.
A popular speaker, he has conducted more than 400 slide programs and seminars over the past 30 years. He currently travels, photographs, teaches, and speaks his way across North America and the world while leading more than a dozen BIRDS AS ART/Instructional Photo-Tours and Photo-Cruises each year.
