Seigal works on conservation biology jobs around the world and takes his camera wherever he goes.
“With degrees in biology and environmental science, I’ve spent the last four years travelling the world working on a number of conservation ecology projects promoting sustainability,” Seigal writes on his Facebook page at “Fortunately for me, this work often takes me to some of the most beautiful and remote locations imaginable, providing an excellent opportunity for me to pursue my passion in nature photography.”
Seigal prints on a variety of media, including aluminum. Part of his presentation will include information about his metal prints.
Seigal has won numerous awards, including a National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest award and several National Geographic Photo of the Day contests, the Shoot The Land International Photography  contest, and he won fourteen awards in the 2013 International Photography Awards (IPA) contest.
“I’ve had some of the best times of my life with my camera by my side, whether it be studying marine mammals off the coast of Alaska, tracking rhinos in the Okavango Delta of Botswana, or developing a more eco-friendly lobster farming mechanism in South East Asia. While these destinations truly are a dream come true for any wildlife photographer, I consider myself especially privileged to work on conservation efforts and contribute to research projects that aim to preserve some of our planets great remaining wilderness areas.”
