Neil Ever Osborne is a Toronto based visual storyteller who uses his photography and filmmaking to express the relationship between people and planet. Working principally in wild spaces and in natural places that need protection, Neil seeks out the human narratives in these lands and seascapes.
Neil is recognized as a Nikon Ambassador, an Associate Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers, a Fellow with the Royal Canadian Geographic Society, and as an inaugural member of Canadian Geographic’s Photographer-In-Residence program. Additionally, Osborne is a contributing editor with the Canadian Wildlife Magazine, and with bioGraphic, a multimedia magazine powered by the California Academy of Sciences in the USA.
Neil has been described as one of conservation photography’s most vocal advocates and is most widely known for his editorial magazine contributions as well as his commissioned work with environmental NGOs and sustainability businesses.
Recent editorial assignments have taken him the length of Canada from Gwaii Haanas in British Columbia to the East Coast shores of Newfoundland. International work has provided him opportunities to work alongside Mexican fishermen in Baja California Sur, with sea turtles in Indonesia, and with the Waorani and Kayapo peoples of the Amazon in Ecuador and Brazil respectively.
A photographer, filmmaker, educator, and businessman, he holds degrees in conservation biology from Trent University and visual communication from Ohio University. Neil is based out of the Evermaven studio in Toronto, Ontario, Canada when not in the field.
