Steven Gnam

Photographer and videographer Steven Gnam explores our conversation with the wild. His work illuminates subjects such as wolverines, grizzly bears, ocean plastics, and how humans relate to wild nature. In order to immerse himself in the diverse subjects of his stories, Steven relies on wide-ranging skills from camera trapping, freediving, ultrarunning, climbing, and backcountry skiing. His stories can require months or years of preparation and fieldwork, collaborating with researchers and scientists to share scientific information through his visuals.

Steven’s photographs are used by clients including National Geographic Magazine, The Nature Conservancy, The Trust for Public Land, Nikon Inc., and Patagonia. Steven’s book, Crown of the Continent: The Wildest Rockies, explores the connectivity of wild spaces in the Northern American Rockies.

Steven lives with his wife and daughter in the Pacific Northwest where, when he is not on assignment, he is focused on building soil, growing food, mountain running, and keeping bees.
