Conservation Alliance Breakfast - Outdoor Retailer

  • Marriott - Salons F-1

Florian Schulz is a conservation photographer and advocate for the preservation of wild habitat. Florian immerses himself in an environment for several weeks at a time, studying wildlife behavior and interaction. His multi-media presentation weaves stories and images from his new book The Wild Edge, which reveals the great Pacific seam of North America. From the Baja peninsula through the coves and breaks of California and the bays and inlets of the Pacific Northwest, to the deep forests of British Columbia and the icy realm of polar bears in the Beaufort Sea of Alaska, the west coast of North America provides a life-sustaining corridor of great energy. Florian’s photographs have appeared in international publications, including National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, and GEO.

Explore The Wild Edge with Florian Schulz

  • Benaroya Hall

“For me photography is a passion that goes far beyond the technical aspects of a camera. It is about experiencing the natural world. The camera is the best excuse to get out there and be in tune with nature.”—Florian Schulz

“Photographer Florian Schulz has worked many years to tell the Arctic story, to bring it to audiences who will never visit the Arctic, yet should understand its beauty and relevance. Florian's camera artistry has taken Arctic imagery to a new height, and I believe he's currently the most imaginative wildlife photographer around."—Greg MacGillivray, MacGillivray Freeman Films

“Florian Schulz’s breathtaking and intimate photography of the Arctic shows us why this great and seemingly infinite land running away to the north remains one of our last true wild places.”—Wade Davis, National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence

“From expansive aerials of the rich reds and golds of the summer tundra and stark landscapes of ice, underwater glimpses of beluga whale pods and baby seals, to up-close and intimately personal portraits of a mother polar bear and her young cubs—Schulz’s range of imagery, accompanied by his personal fieldwork stories, explores the remarkable diversity and drama of life in the Arctic.” —James Mills, The Joy Trip Project

Come along as acclaimed conservation photographer Florian Schulz takes you on an epic journey from Baja California to America's Arctic. He has followed the migrations of whales, manta rays, sea birds, spirit bears, salmon and more, and has incredible near-death, and full-of-life stories to recount. Schulz demonstrates how the remarkable ecosystem along North America's west coast is connected from the depths of the ocean to the tops of ancient trees.

Florian Schulz presents The Wild Edge - Bookshop Santa Cruz

  • Bookshop Santa Cruz

The Wild Edge: Freedom to Roam the Pacific Coast reveals the great Pacific seam of North America that knits together land and sea, ocean and continent in a tumble of interrelated life. From the Baja peninsula through the coves and breaks of California and the bays and inlets of the Pacific Northwest, to the deep forests of British Columbia and the icy realm of polar bears in the Beaufort Sea of Alaska, the west coast of North America provides a life-sustaining corridor of great energy. Here, life and landscape are interconnected in complex and intriguing ways.

"Following the seasonal path of the gray whale, this book explores the stretch of the Pacific Ocean from Mexico to the Arctic. It illustrates what needs to be protected and cherished in this environment, and the means we each have of making a difference ourselves. From spirit bears to citizen science, The Wild Edge is a wealth of information and gorgeous photography. A new favorite on my bookshelf!" —Rachel, Bookshop Santa Cruz Staff
