Wildlife Photographer: 'A Wild Mind Sounds Pretty Good to Me'

Joe Riis is a wildlife photojournalist, National Geographic contributing photographer, and Expeditions Council grantee. During his pioneering work chronicling the Grand Teton pronghorn migration, he photographed the migration for the first time and campaigned for six wildlife highway over- and underpasses, which were built in 2012. Here, Riis talks about the personal aspects of this work and what it has taught him. He received a National Geographic Young Explorer grant in 2008 and an Emmy Award in 2011, among other honors.
