Jeff Mauritzen

Naturalist, Photographer

National Geographic photographer Jeff Mauritzen's assignments and adventures have immersed him in vivid landscapes on all seven continents and in more than 60 countries around the world, from Antarctica to Borneo and Baja to Peru. Whether capturing 360-degree panoramas of wildlife along an African savanna or photographing elusive birds in the Amazon rainforest, Jeff’s work expresses an unwavering passion, respect, curiosity, and awe for the natural world. His photography has appeared in over a dozen National Geographic books, several National Geographic Traveler magazine articles (UK & Korean editions), and on the @natgeotravel Instagram account, where he’s a regular contributor. Jeff has also shot assignments for the National Geographic Traveler guidebook series, including in New York City and Ireland (forthcoming). In addition to assignment work, Jeff enjoys traveling with National Geographic Expeditions, teaching photography around the world on natural history-focused trips.
