  • Jeff Kerby

    National Geographic Photographer
    Jeff Kerby is an award-winning natural history photographer with a passion for science. His work spans the globe—from the deserts of Namibia to the mountains of East Africa—but his focus on animals and plants in extreme environments inevitably draws him back toward the poles. After spending five seasons as a researcher studying caribou in Greenland, he photographed his first feature story for National Geographic magazine in 2017 on gelada monkeys living in the chilly highlands of Ethiopia. With support from the National Geographic Society, Jeff has since returned to the Arctic via Siberia and the islands of Canada’s far north to use photography to explore the widespread, but often subtle, changes to Arctic flora and fauna. This work blends classic natural history photography with technical scientific imaging to tell stories that span individual animals to entire landscapes captured in 3D and in colors beyond what the human eye can see.
