Mark Thiessen, National Geographic photographer

Gaithersburg Book Festival Speaker

Mark Thiessen has been a photographer with National Geographic since 1990 and on staff since 1997. He is widely published in all areas of the National Geographic Society, including National Geographic magazine, National Geographic Adventure magazine, and National Geographic Traveler magazine. National Geographic books that feature Thiessen’s work include “Return to Midway,” which documents the discovery of the U.S.S. Yorktown, and “Baseball as America,” a look at the Baseball Hall of Fame. In 1996, Mark began a personal photography project on wildland firefighters that took him to the front lines of wildfires every summer. To better understand the world of this little known subculture, he became a certified wildland firefighter. An award-winning online piece, “FireCall,” features Thiessen’s photographs and interviews with a veteran wildland firefighter. Mark was also profiled for an episode of the National Geographic Channel’s “Out There” series.
