Dr. James Westwater— photographer, author, photochoreographer and earth guardian—is a two time National Endowment for the Arts Resident Artist, a National Science Foundation Artist in the Antarctic, a recipient of the Antarctic Medal and fellow of The Explorers Club. He invented the art form of symphonic photochoreography—giant screen, multi-image photographic essays choreographed to the performance of symphonic music. During a 40 plus year career he performed his photochoreography with close to 200 symphony orchestras in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Asia. He served as the Chevron Concert Artist for eight years and authored an award winning book of photography.  He now devotes energy to photographing and sharing the beauty and wonder of Mother Earth and helping to conserve and protect her.

Dr. Westwater's photochoreography is currently being performed with orchestras by Westwater Arts.
