Upon completion of his formal training in the arts (a “D” in high school photography), Jon Mullen took the next logical step and moved halfway across the country to study engineering. He is now fortunate enough to again pursue his lifelong passion for freeze-dried cuisine, crawling out of the tent before dawn in foul weather and running from the occasional hungry carnivore like a scared little child.
His work has been published hundreds of times the world over including by Outside Online, Time, The Guardian, The Times (London), Mother Jones, the EPA, the USDA Forest Service, Bloomberg, Forbes Travel Guide, SFGate, the Huffington Post, Women’s Adventure Magazine and Outdoor Photographer Magazine. He now produces compelling images of our threatened wild places for media and organizations working to raise awareness of issues affecting our natural environment.
