Daniel Beltrá’s SPILL: Images from the Gulf

Daniel Beltrá's SPILL: Images from the Gulf

We’re a fortunate company: among our customers are some of the most innovative, talented and accomplished people we’ve ever had the opportunity to meet.

One of those customers is Daniel Beltra, an award-winning conservation photographer and member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP). You may have seen one of Daniel’s aerial photographs of the Gulf Oil Spill in Raffi Khatchadourian’s article, “The Gulf War”, in the March 14, 2011 edition of “The New Yorker.”

An exhibit of Daniel’s photos from the Gulf Oil Spill — SPILL– Images from the Gulf — is featured at the Seattle Aquarium from April 20th – August 7th, and on May 5th, Daniel will take part in a discussion on health of the world’s oceans and marine life as part of the “Sound Discussions” series at the Seattle Aquarium.
