Emily Mount’s photography strives to capture the beauty and essence of nature and to promote the protection of wild places. A professional photographer for several years, Emily has worked as a naturalist and photography instructor for Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic since 2013 traveling on expeditions around the world. She is also a freelance writer focused on environmental issues, and is passionate about sharing stories through words and images to change the way people think. Her articles and photos have been published in Alaska, National Parks, Sierra, Orion, Landscape Photography Magazine, and others. Her images are currently for sale in galleries in Alaska and Oregon.

A native of Niwot, Colorado and Pullman, Washington, Emily’s love of nature began during a childhood spent hiking, camping and exploring the mountains and deserts of the west. Emily also excelled as a classical violinist, culminating in degrees in history and music performance at the University of Washington.

Emily returned to the roots of her childhood through an internship as a park ranger at Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado. A summer job became her life’s passion, and since then Emily has worked at ten National Parks across the west. As a naturalist, she shared her love of wild places with visitors at the Grand Canyon, Sequoia, Hawai’i Volcanoes, Organ Pipe Cactus and Haleakala. She worked in the backcountry as an EMT and wilderness ranger patrolling Big Bend, Zion and Yosemite.

In 2008, Emily arrived at Glacier Bay National Park in southeast Alaska. Through five seasons of work as an Alaska ranger naturalist, Emily fell in love with southeast’s vibrant ecosystem, dynamic landscape, and the local town of Gustavus, where today she spends as much time as possible.
