Sebastian Kennerknecht is a wildlife and conservation photographer with over eleven years experience visually covering wildlife both locally and internationally, focusing in particular on endangered species and wild cats.
He has produced high quality photographs,
time-lapses, videos, and web content featured in and by BBC Wildlife, Smithsonian, The Economist, Science, and Conservation International among others.
Using highly customized SLR camera traps (which Sebastian builds himself) along with conventional photographic techniques, and following extensive natural history research, he works closely in the field
with biologists to capture the behavior and ecology of wildlife, showing the threats they face as well as the conservation work being done to protect them.
Sebastian has worked for world-renowned wildlife photographer Frans Lanting, assisting him on two international assignments and six photography workshops. Sebastian has personally organized and led over fifty wildlife photography workshops in the US and abroad.
Sebastian graduated with a BS in Ecology and Evolution from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is also a fellow at the International League of Conservation Photographers. He has traveled to over twenty-five countries for photography assignments, thus he understands and appreciates the logistical, creative, and cultural aspects of such trips.
