Arthur Morris is widely recognized as the world's premier bird photographer. His images are noted for both their artistic design and their technical excellence. His fitting credit line: BIRDS AS ART. Mr. Morris is the author of four books. "The Art of Bird Photography: The Complete Guide to Professional Field Techniques" (Amphoto), which quickly became the classic How-to work on the subject, was re-released in soft-cover by Amphoto, NY in 2003.
Mr. Morris is a contributing photographer with VIREO (Visual Resources for Ornithology) at The Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia and The Corbis Stock Market, New York, New York. More than 140 photo-illustrated articles by and about him have appeared in natural history, birding, and photographic magazines. He is a contributing editor with Nature Photographer, a contributing photographer with Bird Watcher's Digest, a WildBird advisory board member, and a Popular Photography columnist. Morris' cover credits include Audubon Field Notes, Birder's World, Birding, BirdWatching, Chicago Wilderness, and many others.
Five of his images have been awarded prizes in the BG/BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competitions. A traveling gallery exhibit of his work, sponsored by Canon USA and The Nature Conservancy, began its run at the prestigious Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown, NY in Summer 1999. In April 2001, 64 of his framed images were featured in a yearlong educational exhibit titled "On a Wing and a Prayer; The Migratory Birds of the Americas" at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.
Arthur has conducted more than 325 slide programs and seminars in the past 15 years. He currently travels, photographs, teaches, and speaks his way across North America while leading more than a dozen of BIRDS AS ART/Instructional Photos Tours each year.
