The Ashland University Academic Honors Program is hosting a lecture on Thursday, March 18, featuring Tom Ulrich, an award winning freelance photographer. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 7 p.m. in the Faculty Room in Myers Convocation Center.
Ulrich, who was the 2005 recipient of the North American Nature Photography Association’s Fellow Award, will be presenting an “Evening of Images: Capturing Nature and Animal Behavior.”
Ulrich grew up in South Chicago, graduated with a degree in biology from Southern Illinois University and taught biology for four years before launching his career as a freelance photographer.

Ulrich’s photographs have been featured in National Wildlife, Audubon, National Geographic, Montana Outdoors and others. He has published seven nature books including his most recent, “Photo Pantanal.”
