Devdharm first connected with SCA in 2013 as an SCA NPS Academy member at Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska. Since then he’s served as an SCA Multimedia Intern at Bering Land Bridge National Park, a Peer Mentor at SCA NPS Academy 2014, and a Digital Media Intern at Fairbanks Alaska Public Lands Information Center, where he’s posted until almost this time next year.
He sent us this photo just recently, taken during a drive on the Dalton Highway in Alaska, one of the most remote roads in the U.S.

Here he is with a word on how killer camera skills (of the kind he clearly possesses) can be employed as a true force for conservation.
What draws you to nature photography?
I just love being surrounded by pure wilderness, listening to the chirps of birds and the sound of the breeze. It’s a freeing experience.
