Emilene's Snow Leopard Video

This post really isn't about Pronghorn Passage, but it's important.

I need to tell you about this, because I know Emilene won't. First of all, Emilene is the most inspiring and humble person I know. With that said, check this out....

Emilene worked with National Geographic Magazine photographer Steve Winter in 2007 on his snow leopard story in India. Steve and Emilene spent the majority of that year tracking and photographing the snow leopard, which is one of the most challenging and elusive species to photograph. While there, Emilene decided to film the experience. 

In my opinion, the snow leopard pictures from this project formed the best wildlife photography story ever made. This year already they have won two of the most prestigious photography competitions in the world. And, just announced this morning, Emilene's video won the prestigious MPA award for "Best Online Standalone Video".

Congratulations Emilene!!!

PS- Emilene and I will be presenting our Pronghorn Passage project in Sheridan, WY on April 23rd at the Patagonia Wild & Scenic Film Festival. The event will be in the evening at the WYO Theater, sponsored by the Wyoming Wilderness Association.
