Marcus Connolly Blog 4 - Connor Stefanison

Growing up in British Colombia Connor Stefanison already had a lot of exposure to wildlife and natural environments by just living there. but through multiple various outdoor hobbies and adventures such as fishing, hunting, camping, wildlife viewing, and mountain biking all helped to spark his interest in photography which he took up in 2008 at the young age of 17. through all these activities he was able to come even closer with nature and gaining a lot of first hand experience and exposure to it, all of which helped him to craft and hone his photography skills into what he is today. even though he is so young he has already been awarded the BBC/Veolia Photographer of the Year Eric Hosking Portfolio Award which he received in London, Uk where he was also a speaker at the WildPhotos conference. He as recently completed his Biology degree in ecology and conservation and hopes to become a conservation photojournalist.
