Welcome

You have reached the personal website for Dennis Dimick. 

Go to Eyes on Earth to find out about my collaborative educational project with photographer Jim Richardson. Our goal is to inspire a new generation of environmental photographers using the scientific research underpinning the emerging Anthropocene epoch.

I have been a journalist for 45 years, am originally from the Columbia River Valley (above) of the U.S. I worked as a photographer, reporter, and editor at newspapers in Oregon, Washington, and Louisville, Kentucky. For more than 35 years (1980-2015) I was a picture editor and for a decade-plus the environment editor at National Geographic in Washington, D.C. Have been a faculty member of the Missouri Photo Workshop for 20 years, and in 2013 I received the Charles M. Sprague Memorial Award from the National Press Photographers Association for service to photojournalism. 

My primary journalistic focus is nurturing the creation of long-form environmental photography projects focusing on the collision between humanity and the planet. I present slide show lectures on looming environmental issues of the Anthropocene at universities, conferences, and meetings.

You can find out more about me and reach me via the Bio/Contact link on the menu.  Thanks for visiting.
