Pro Nature Photographer is proud to have the opportunity to interview veteran nature photographer Ralph Clevenger.
Please tell us how you got started and how long you have been in the business.
“I got started in the business of photography when I was going to Brooks Institute. Being a commercial photography school I was constantly reminded about how to make a living taking photographs. I licensed my first images while I was a student and learned that no matter what my “day job” was I could produce work and submit it to commercial and editorial clients for publication. My business model hasn’t really changed in the last 30 years, stock, assignment, and a day job. My day job is teaching photography and video production at Brooks, I’ve written books and lead workshops, my stock is represented by Corbis, and I do half a dozen assignments a year.”
