September 15, 2011
Award winning photographer Bill Hatcher will visit East Central College Thursday evening, Sept. 22, to share some his experiences from his trips shooting adventure, science and expedition photos around the world.
The free presentation will begin at 7 p.m. in the John Edson Anglin Performing Arts Center on the ECC campus in Union. A reception will follow the presentation.
More than 20 of Hatcher’s photos will be displayed on the second floor atrium of Buescher Hall through Oct. 7.
Hatcher’s first story for National Geographic magazine in 1996, “Storming the Tower,” was a photographic journey of the epic struggle of four climbers to reach the summit of Nameless Tower, a 21,000-foot granite spire in Pakistan.
His subsequent stories for National Geographic documented mountain climbers on Denali, the first traverse by bike of the Alaskan Range, exploration of slot canyons in the American Southwest, scientific endeavors to study giant trees in Borneo and Australia, and examination of the use of yucca plant fibers by ancient Native Americans.
Hatcher’s editorial, commercial and video work has received several awards, and his photos and stories have been published widely, both in the United States and internationally.
Hatcher also has shot feature stories for Smithsonian, Outside magazine, Newsweek, Paris Match, and GEO, in addition to many specialized magazines such as Climbing, Rock and Ice, Bike, Snowboarding, and Archaeology.
His advertising clients include Nikon, the Discovery Channel, Reebok, Ralph Lauren, Nike, The North Face, and many others.
Author of The National Geographic Field Guide to Adventure Photography, his photography is also prominent in the National Geographic books “Desire and Ice and Caves: Exploring the Hidden Realms.”
Every fall he teaches photography at the annual National Geographic Adventure Photography Workshop hosted by the Banff Centre in Canada.
Hatcher began his career with mountain climbing photos. He is an experienced mountain climber.
