LensFlare 35 is a weekly show brought to you by Dave Warner. In this week’s episode, Dave interviews Conservation Photographer Daniel Beltrá. Daniel is a Spanish photographer based in Seattle. He brings the sensibility and craft of a news photographer to the fields of nature and the environment, making images which he hopes will spur greater respect and conservation of those subjects. He has documented several expeditions by Greenpeace to the Brazilian Amazon, the Arctic, the Southern Oceans and the Patagonian Ice Fields, among many others. This year, Daniel was awarded the Prince’s Rain Forest Project given via the Sony World Photography Awards. The award, granted by Prince Charles, sent Daniel for three months to the Congo, Amazon and Indonesian rain forests to create photos for a book, website and traveling exhibition about the perilous fate that the world’s rain forests face. In this episode, Daniel talks about being a photojournalist in Spain, the things that caused him to convert to conservation photography, the Prince’s Rain Forest Project, the environment, Greenpeace, and what it was like to be ABC News’ Person of the Week.
