Photo by @mmuheisen (Muhammed Muheisen) #onassignment for @natgeo. A young refugee from Kunduz, Afghanistan sleeps on a bunk bed at a "one stop center" where she and her family have taken refuge near the Croatian border in Serbia. One stop centers offer food, medical support and assistance with documentation for refugees.

Back-lit gannet coming in to land – This image was taken a few years ago when I spent three consecutive summers on the Shetland Islands working #onassignment for @natgeo. I had descended the 130 metre cliffs and then traversed a treacherous tidal boulder field, as I had to do every day but it was a privilege to be able to work in part of a secluded gannet colony where few people had ever stood before. Even though the light in this image is not the usual quality of light in which I seek to work there is so much more latitude in terms of exposure when using back-lighting, when the sun is rising behind the subject, and it is possible that by using exposure intelligently one can soften the harshness of mid-morning light. As the gannets would come in to land they would emerge from the shadows of the towering cliff face and into the early morning light but the changeable size of the birds in the frame meant that, in order to secure consistently accurate exposures I had to set my aperture and shutter speed manually. Leaving this to the arbitrary vagueness of aperture priority would have meant that my exposures would have varied from very over-exposed to significantly under but by using manual exposure, and the consistency of the light it is much easier just to tell the camera exactly what to do! With the correct exposure dialled in to the camera I was then free to shoot and as long as the bird was in direct sunlight then I knew my exposure would be accurate. Of course as the sun rose and the light increased I would periodically increase my shutter speed a reflect the changing light and to ensure that the pixels on my histogram were right up to, but not climbing the right hand side. This way I knew that I was retaining detail in all of the critical whites whilst allowing the shadowed cliff face behind to fall in to dramatic underexposure. There now remains just one place left on my Shetland photo tour so please email me at tours@andrewparkinson.com for more details if you’d like to experience this remote and spectacular archipelago.

@natgeo @stevewinterphoto I've been photographing and filming cheetahs with my assistant @alexbraczkowski in the southwestern grasslands of South Africa this week. New research led by Sarah Durant and colleagues suggests there may be as few as ~7100 cheetahs left in Africa, and that if their populations are to survive, they need good protection inside national parks to offset losses in community areas where they clash with farmers! Did you know that cheetahs have good hunting success! These two males along with one other female ate 80 blesbuck, nearly 100 springbuck and some hartebeest calves in just five months!

National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop conflict between big cats and livestock and they even monitor big cats numbers with camera traps. Visit https://www.nationalgeographic.org/projects/big-cats-initiative/ to find out how you can help save big cats today, and remember by saving apex predators we keep ecosystems balanced and healthy!

Scientists also know how to have fun. Just ask @global_wildlife_conservation scientist Dr. Jim Sanderson. After a month in the field you will entertain yourself however you can. Dr. Sanderson is 67 years young and has been a vegetarian since 1971. He states, "I feel healthier and stronger than ever. I've worked to conserve wildlife on six continents and the common threat continues to be animal agriculture. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, water pollution, and ocean dead zones. Consuming meat and dairy is no longer a sustainable option. If you really care about the health of our children's planet, you have to switch to a plant based diet." #rollingpeacontest #plantstrong #sustainability #ourchildrensearth #plantbased #nature #education #conservation #onassignment #mongolia #steppe #gobidesert #explorersclub #endangered #wildlife #protectwhatyoulove #vegan #love #live #breathe #findyourconnection @ocefoundation

FIRE & ICE series
South Sawyer Glacier calving into the water in Tracy Arm - Fords Terror Wilderness Area in Southeast Alaska. Photographing calving glaciers is more difficult than you would think. You have to adjust for over exposure especially the brightness of the splash. In addition, you also have to be patient to not exhaust your camera’s buffer on the calving ice and save a few shots for the impressive splash which could take several seconds. Finally, a fast shutter speed of at least 1/1000 second to catch the flying ice and splashing water.
Climate change is playing a big role in the grand retreat of glaciers worldwide and I have witnessed South Sawyer Glacier rapidly retreating in the 8 years of visiting this tidewater glacier. I look forward to returning to one of my favorite places this June and July to Southeast Alaska #OnAssignment with @natgeoexpeditions and @lindbladexp

I'd like you to meet Thomas. In Malawi, where 80% of the population works in agriculture, Thomas is one of the workers. He has very little, and lives in very basic accomodation on the farm that hires him. The cost of buying / hiring / using farming machinery in Malawi far exceeds the cost of hiring labourers to do the same work, so it is people like Thomas who work the land - completley by hand. With little or no irrigation, the success of farms such as this, are completely at the mercy of the seasonal rains, which once again this year have not come at the right time. Unfortunately this means Malawi is in for yet another year of poor harvests and food shortages. #ryancarterimages
