"My first love of wildlife came from growing up on Nebraska's Platte River. This led to studies in wildlife biology in college. Combining my passion for photography and interest in wildlife led to a career in nature photography."

Driven by expressing the beauty and intricacy of the wilderness, Tom spends up to nine months in the field documenting the wild lands and creatures he so cares about. With a background in wildlife biology, he works both in cinematography and in still photography, media that he believes will touch people on an emotional level and move them to love and protect fragile places and animals.

In 2005, Tom was named one of the 100 most important people in photography by American Photo Magazine as well as being honored with Nikon's Legends Behind the Lens recognition. He received an Honorary Fellowship from The Royal Photographic Society in 2002 and was named North American Nature Photographer Association's (NANPA) Outstanding Nature Photographer of the Year in 2000 and in 1994. Also in 1994, Mangelsen earned the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award, a photography contest sponsored by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and British Gas.Mangelsen's work has been published in National Geographic, Audubon, National Wildlife, Smithsonian, Natural History, Newsweek, Wildlife Art, American Photo, Nikon World and other publications.  He has also appeared on many major television programs such as the Today Show and Good Morning America.
