Photographer of the Week – Marty Snyderman
By Lia Barrett, July 7, 2016 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

Marty Snyderman is definitely a shooter who is not lacking in industry accolades. As a photographer and cinematographer, he has achieved heights that only the most experienced photographer can dream of. From the pages of notable wildlife magazines to the credit lines in documentaries featured on BBC, Discovery and PBS, this Emmy Award winner is no stranger to achievement.

But though I am most awestruck as a kid from the 90s who watched Free Willy maybe 100 times (yes, he filmed the underwater segments), what I take away from his still images is that sense of drama that one finds in film. Whether it’s the birth of a shark, mating snakes, or pairs of humpbacks, turtles or dolphins, each one of Marty’s images immediately spins you through layers of nature’s peculiarities.
