This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Robert Glenn Ketchum (b. December 1, 1947)

He is a landscape and nature photographer whose work has a strong environmental advocacy message.

As an undergraduate, Ketchum studied design at UCLA, and began his study in photography under the direction of Edmund Teske and Robert Heinecken.  He later received an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 1974.  After he graduated he began a life-long friendship with Eliot Porter, who helped form his ideas about photography and about how photography can be used to help change the world.

In his 30-year career, Ketchum has become well known as a photographer-environmentalist. In its centennial edition, Audubon Magazine included Ketchum in their list of 100 people "who shaped the environmental movement in the 20th century."  He was also listed by American Photo Magazine as one of the 100 most important people in photography, as well as being named the 2001 Outstanding Photographer of the Year by the North American Nature Photography Association and Outstanding Person of the Year 2000 by Photo Media Magazine.
In 2010 American Photo Magazine named Ketchum as the first conservation photographer ever to receive the Master Series distinction.  In twenty years of publishing, American Photo has only designated four other photographers with the Master Series.

Ketchum is a Founding Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers.

Ketchum has had over 400 one-man and group shows, and his photographs are in major museum collections throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), the National Museum of American Art (DC), Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the Museum of Modern Art (NY).
