Known for his conservation work in New England's wild places, Jerry Monkman has spent the last fifteen years artfully documenting the mountains, forests, and coastlines that define the region. In 2002, he was awarded a communications award by the Northern Forest Alliance in recognition of his "vision and excellence in chronicling the story of the Northern Forest through photography." Staying true to his mission of "promoting ecological awareness through creative photography," his images have contributed to raising awareness and funds to protect a diverse collection of wild places, from a small Connecticut trout stream not far from New York City, to New Hampshire's Great Bay, to Maine's Debsconeag Lakes in the Northern Forest. He was featured in the February, 2007 issue of Photo District news as the New Hampshire entry for the article, "50 States, 50 Photographers."
With his wife Marcy, Jerry has co-authored eight books, including "Wild Acadia" which was named a top photo book of 2007 by Shutterbug Magazine. Jerry is currently writing "The AMC Guide to Digital Outdoor Photography" which is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2011. In 2008, the U.S.P.S. used Jerry's photo of NH's 13 Mile Woods on a 72 cent postage stamp in the "Scenic America" series. His work has appeared in publications worldwide and his client list includes National Geographic Adventure, Audubon, Men's Journal, The Washington Post, Outdoor Photographer, L.L. Bean, Princess Cruises, and The Nature Conservancy. In addition to running their own stock photography business, the Monkmans are represented by Danita Delimont, the Nature Picture Library, and Animals Animals/Earth Scenes stock photo agencies.
