Piotr Naskrecki – Creative Nature Photography

Your Bio

Piotr (Peter) Naskrecki is an entomologist, photographer and author, currently at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University (Cambridge, MA.) He received his Ph.D. in Entomology from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, and his research focuses on the evolution of katydids and related insects, and the theory and practice of nature conservation.

As a photographer, Piotr strives to promote appreciation and conservation of invertebrate animals – insects, arachnids, and their kin – by capturing both their beauty and roles as vital, often critically important members of the Earth’s ecosystems. He is one of the founding members of the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP.)
