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

His work focuses on America's swamps in an attempt to change public opinion towards our country’s wetlands. 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. In March of 2015 he delivered his first TED talk, which has now been viewed over 1 million times. Click this link to view.  

Stone is a National Geographic explorer, a senior fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers, a Sea Legacy fellow, and is also the executive director of Naturaland Trust, a non-profit that permanently protects critical lands in the upstate of South Carolina. 


Presently, he is working with National Geographic exploring the remaining old growth swamps of the United States to understand how the southeast used to look and function. To stay up to date with events and new images, follow along on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram
