Chris Linder Photography - Science and Natural History Storytelling

Teaching » Presentations

I enjoy sharing my love of photography and science through slide show presentations. View my upcoming talks on the calendar. To book a speaking engagement, contact me.

Speaking at the PINC.15 meeting, Sarasota, Florida

Science on Ice book tour

Follow the adventures of two scientific teams as they explore the alien icescape of the Greenland Ice Sheet and a teeming penguin colony on Antarctica's Ross Island. In this slide show I will explain how researchers are learning about climate change using two radically different methods--tracking the movements of glaciers and the behavior of Adélie penguins. The photographs for this presentation were collected through the Live from the Poles project and are featured in my book Science on Ice.

Exploring the Arctic Seafloor

Experience an Arctic research expedition aboard the Swedish icebreaker Oden through the eyes of a photojournalist. The images showcase the efforts of an international team of scientists led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to find life on the bottom of the ice-capped Arctic Ocean using specially developed swimming robotic vehicles. This talk is being given in conjunction with the Exploring the Arctic Seafloor photography exhibit and is also one of the chapters from my book Science on Ice.

Photographer's Guide to Cape Cod

The research and photography for my book, The Photographer's Guide to Cape Cod and the Islands, took me to every sand dune, upland forest, and country lane from Bourne to P-Town. In this presentation I will share images from my favorite photography hotspots on the Cape and Islands, plus share some tips on how to photograph this iconic landscape.

Freeze Frame

Join me on a photographic journey across the Western Arctic Ocean. Through written dispatches and stunning photos, I documented the work of oceanographers studying climate change in this remote corner of the globe from 2002-2005. In this talk I share the highlights from my collection of over 40,000 images of scientists in action and the Arctic Ocean environment from the Arctic Edge and Beaufort Gyre projects.
