Alyce Bender
Alyce Bender is a nature photographer, writer, educator, and adventurer. Camera in hand since childhood, her fascination for photography developed into a career after serving in the U.S. Air Force.
Her passion for wildlife and the natural environment compels her to connect others with nature through sharing both visual art and in-field experiences that promote conservation, creativity, and ethical photography.
She is a Tamron USA Ambassador, and her work has been featured in group and solo gallery shows across the United States as well as in international publications from the United Kingdom to Japan.
Bender leads photography adventures around the world to help photographers of all levels ethically explore and expand their personal vision and naturalist skills.
When not in the field, she offers a variety of educational programs both in person and virtually for photography organizations large and small.

Bender has written for the Journal since Summer 2020.
