Earlier this year, the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) asked me to produce a multimedia piece about nature in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, to be presented at the 2011 NANPA Summit in McAllen, TX. The Lower Rio Grande is one of the most biologically diverse regions in the United States. It was an opportunity to work with images created by some of North America’s best nature photographers, so I couldn’t say no. In the end, about 150 images by 27 photographers images were used in the 14-minute presentation. Had it been up to me, I probably would have preferred to make a punchier, 3-5 minute piece, but NANPA wanted something longer to donate to the Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center. Luckily, the amazing images keep things pretty interesting! The video will be shown at Quinta Mazatlan and may be aired on the local PBS station in McAllen.
