People In The Picture: National Geographic Photographer Captures Western Landscapes Amid Throngs

Oct 16, 2015

The National Park Service celebrates its Centennial in 2016. To mark the occasion, National Geographic Magazine is devoting the entire May 2016 issue to the country’s first national park – Yellowstone. Charlie Hamilton James is one of the photographers whose work will be featured in the issue. His niche is aquatic wildlife photography – animals like cutthroat trout, beavers, and otters. James is from the UK and relocated to Jackson for a year to shoot these pictures in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. He told Wyoming Public Radio’s Caroline Ballard that while he was here he took his family on some classic western road trips.
