2011 Britton C. and Lucile McCabe Lecture: John Green - Interpretive Naturalist Nature Photographer
John Green has been photographing nature for more than 30 years. Inspired by the simple and abundant beauty of the natural world, he purchased his first camera in 1970 and began teaching himself the technical aspects of natural light photography. Trained as an interpretative naturalist, Green is skilled in bird and plant identification and an expert in “birding by ear.” He has been featured on the television series "PBS Kids" and his prints have been exhibited widely throughout Massachusetts. His beautiful and moving slideshows have been presented from Maine to Florida. Since 1972, Green has lived in Western Massachusetts, where he frequently is found photographing the wilds of Quabbin Reservoir. He presents his slideshows to civic and nature groups and conducts workshops in nature photography.
