Mac Stone grew up exploring the springs, swamps, and hammocks of North Central Florida where he developed a passion for photography and conservation at a young age.

His work focuses on swamps and wetlands in an attempt to change public opinion towards these often misunderstood and maligned ecosystems. After spending five years living and working in the Everglades watershed, he released a 304-page coffee table book about the heralded River of Grass. Everglades: America's Wetland, published by University Press of Florida and is now in its second printing. He also delivered a TED talk on the subject, which has now been viewed over 1 million times.

Stone is a contributing photographer for National Geographic Magazine, a National Geographic Society Explorer, and a senior fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers. He now resides in South Carolina with his wife and two children, where he also runs a non-profit called Naturaland Trust, where his images and efforts help to permanently protect critical lands for the public.
