Minnesota native Jim Brandenburg traveled the globe as a photographer with National Geographic Magazine for over three decades, resulting in twenty-four magazine stories, several television documentaries, and publication in many National Geographic books. His magazine article, North Woods Journal, was (according to editor William Allen) "the most photographs the magazine has ever published in one feature in its entire history"¦and by the way, using the least amount of film." A sample of his Looking for the Summer project was featured in the June, 2003 issue of National Geographic Magazine and the November, 2003 issue of Outdoor Photographer, and was the first completely digital story featured in each magazine's history. The April, 2016 issue of National Geographic Magazine topped his previous record of the most photographs published in one feature, this time the "93 Days of Spring" took the honor. He has done assignment work for and has been published in numerous national and international publications including The New York Times, Life, Time, Audubon, Smithsonian, Natural History, Geo, BBC Wildlife, Outdoor Photographer, National Wildlife, and Outside.
