Hello, I’m Chris Johnston and I want to thank you for visiting my website.
I’m happiest in the outdoors with a camera in my hands. I’ve spent the better part of my adult life in some way involved with wildlife and nature. Here is a list of some of the things I’ve done.
4 years volunteering at the LA Nature Center doing wildlife rehabilitation
8 years volunteering at the Audubon Zoo doing everything from wild bird rehabilitation to wildlife shows to working in the Louisiana Swamp Exhibit.
Assisted on a pilot project between the National Park Service and Amtrak to develop and perform interpretive talks with train passengers on trips between New Orleans and Lafayette.
Worked one summer in Wyoming as field assistant with a vertebrate paleontologist.
Focused on environmental journalism while pursuing my masters degree
Certified Louisiana Master Naturalist (graduate Spring 2015 class, Donald Muir Bradburn Award winner, board member)
Fellow in the Loyola Institute for Environmental Communication (2016 Class)
I shoot with Canon, edit with Lightroom and Photoshop, and a Wacom Tablet.
