As a staff photographer for National Geographic magazine for over 15 years, Bob Madden produced the photographs for more than twenty stories (he wrote some, too), and for several National Geographic books. Travels across all seven continents exposed him to an extraordinary diversity of cultures and customs, from the Yanomamo Indians in the jungles of Venezuela, to street life in Brooklyn, New York, to the ecology of the Chesapeake Bay, the area Bob calls home. Bob has also been immersed in travel photography from another perspective: he served as Senior Assistant Editor and Director of Design at the National Geographic magazine and picture editor for National Geographic Kids magazine and National Geographic Books. His long list of awards and credits include: Magazine Photographer of the Year (twice); College Photographer of the Year; University of Wisconsin Distinguished Alumni Award; and design awards from the Society of Publication Designers, The New York Art Directors Club, and Communication Arts.
