Pro Photographer Jeffrey Davis and Mountain Travel Sobek Combine Snap-Worthy Destinations With Expert Photography Tips on Their New Adventures

Introducing Mountain Travel Sobek's New Photo Explorations Program

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - February 25, 2014) - Meet Jeffrey Davis, Your Expert For Photography

Internationally acclaimed photographer Jeffrey Davis has always been a fan of adventure, whether he's completing his third Ironman competition, cycling across the U.S. twice, riding a 4x4 through unmarked Namibian desert dunes with his camera in tow, or hiking for two weeks in the rain, snow, and sleet to reach the base camp of majestic Mount Everest.

"I hold a deep interest in people, diverse cultures, nature, and raw landscapes. I believe in the power of images and the possibility of global impact through photography, video, sound, and compelling story." -- Jeffrey Davis

Jeff's photographic skills have led him to co-executive produce Travels to the Edge, a 26-part PBS Series that was shot all over the world with host Art Wolfe. His travel imagery has also been featured in exhibits for the San Francisco International Airport Museum, Mumm Fine Art Photography Gallery, San Francisco City Hall, Stanford University, Telluride Mountain Film Festival, and the Banff Centre For The Arts, among others.

He has applied his photographic knowledge to his philanthropic efforts, helping Quechua children in Peru and Gwich'in children in an Arctic village learn camera and video skills to bring awareness about local issues, and in rural Malawai where he produced a documentary film about malnutrition to support a nonprofit organization in the area.

Jeff is a world traveler with 50 countries under his belt, and has taught photography workshops in India, Tibet, Cuba, and San Francisco.
