Clark Little, whose work has been featured in Photo Life’s June/July 2010 issue, was awarded this week the “Ocean Photography Award” for 2010 by the prestigious Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards in a ceremony at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.
Clark was one of 18 category winners selected from over 20,000 images by photographers in 56 countries. Clark was also given the Highly Honored Photographer of Endangered Species award for his photography of endangered Hawaiian green sea turtles.
Winners of each award category and a selection of highly honored images are on exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History from now through September 25, 2011. Clark was selected to exhibit two photographs shot on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii; an underwater picture of a tube and an image of a green sea turtle swimming behind a wave.
