Michael Ready is a nature photographer based in San Diego, California.
Toward that effort, Ready is an Associate Member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (www.ilcp.com) -- a group using awe-inspiring photography to further environmental and cultural conservation.
Through this group his
work is being used directly in conservation projects and outreach.
field expeditions have taken him to locales around the world, including the Amazon Basin, Central America, Southeast Asia, and Japan, where he
was honored to swim in mountain streams with giant salamanders as old as he
has traveled to remote and exotic destinations, he
still finds intrigue and inspiration in the details of an ochre sea star or a colony of California harvester ants.
