Ami Vitale

American Photographer | Born: 1971
Nikon Ambassador and National Geographic magazine photographer Ami Vitale has lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit—all in keeping with her philosophy of “living the story.” She has traveled to more than 90 countries, bearing witness not only to violence and conflict, but also to surreal beauty and to the enduring power of the human spirit. Recently, she has turned her lens to compelling wildlife stories, such as returning critically endangered captive born species, like the giant pandas back to the wild and saving the last four living northern white rhinos from extinction.

Her photographs have been commissioned by nearly every important international publication and been exhibited around the world in museums and galleries. She is a founding member of Ripple Effect Images, a collective of scientists, writers, photographers and filmmakers with a mission of creating powerful stories that illustrate the very specific issues facing women in developing countries. She is also on the Photojournalism Advisory Council for the Alexia Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports photographers through grants, scholarships and special projects.

Ami is has been the subject of a ten-part television series for the National Geographic Channel. She is represented as a speaker for National Geographic Speakers Bureau and frequently gives lectures and workshops throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
