National Geographic Photographer and UW Alumnus to Speak Thursday
March 28, 2008 — Bill Hatcher, a freelance photographer for National Geographic and other publications including Outside magazine and Smithsonian, will give a presentation Thursday, April 3, at 7 p.m., in the University of Wyoming College of Business auditorium.
The event, free and open to the public, is sponsored by the UW Outdoor Adventure Program.
Hatcher's presentation, "Stories from the Field," will go behind-the-scenes of some of the magazine expedition stories he has worked on around the world, from wall climbing in Pakistan to tree climbing with scientists in Malaysia.
A basic truth runs through all of these stories: If you combine talented, motivated adventurers with a remote, beautiful and potentially dangerous environment, you will likely have a good story to tell.
Hatcher specializes in adventure and expedition photography, including climbing, mountain biking, kayaking and backcountry skiing and snowboarding.
Earning a bachelor of science degree from the University of Wyoming in 1984, Hatcher has been a freelance photographer since 1987.
