Just Posted: President of the International League of Conservation Photographers, Marine Biologist, Mother, and SONY Artisan of Imagery are just some of the roles photographer Cristina Mittermeier manages to fit into her busy schedule. Cristina took some time at the PDN Photoplus Expo last week to discuss her career, approach to her work, and recent projects.

Cristina Mittermeier is nearly as accomplished an author and scientist as she is as a photographer, having written several books and published in prestigious journals such as Nature and Science. Through her role as President of the International League of Conservation Photographers, Cristina is dedicated to using her twin passions of science and photography to spread awareness of and advocate for nature conservation and preservation of indigenous cultures around the globe.

Cristina is one of Sony's Artisans of Imagery, and was presenting at their booth during the PDN Photoplus Expo last week. Her natural enthusiasm and obvious passion for her work were evident as we spoke with her about her career, the experience of documenting native cultures, and her recent expedition near the North Pole.
