Beth Davidow



Beth was born near the Florida Everglades where, growing up, her parents instilled in her a love of nature and a curiosity about the outdoor world and nearby ocean that she continue to explore. As a kid, she was always out & about, collecting bugs & birds, and taking classes like astronomy & marine biology at the local science museum. Beth hold's a Bachelor's degree in natural sciences from Auburn University and a Master's degree in museum science and vertebrate paleontology from Texas Tech University where she helped operate the Planetarium, participated in many dinosaur digs, and curated museum collections.

During summer breaks at Tech, Beth began work in the outdoors, combining her love of geology, biology & photography into the job of naturalist. During the past 25 years as a naturalist, she has worked in Petrified Forest, Glacier, and Denali National Parks as a National Park Service ranger and naturalist guide interpreting the geology, biology, history, and wildlife of the areas for park visitors. Since 1996, Beth has traveled on expedition ships as a naturalist in the Sea of Cortez, the Caribbean, the Chilean Fjords, the Amazon, Alaska's Inside Passage, and Antarctica where her diverse lectures reflect her interest and delight in the natural world. She often spends a part of each summer on private yacht charters in Alaska or leading photo trips in the Arctic & elsewhere.

Since 1990, Beth has enjoyed a successful career as a wildlife and nature photographer and writer. Her images and articles appear in publications such as National Geographic Traveler, National Wildlife, Sierra Club, Audubon, GEO Germany, Outdoor Life, Montana, Nature's Best, Florida Wildlife, Alaska, WildBird, Ranger Rick, and many other magazines, books, calendars, and advertisements worldwide. Three agencies represent her work globally.

While Beth's agencies continue to market her still photography, she switched to shooting video in 2000. As producer, director, cinematographer, and editor of digital video media, Beth owns and operates “WorldWild™ Productions,” a company that produces a variety of television documentaries for international broadcast and films for various organizations. A member of Filmmakers for Conservation, and NAUI advanced scuba diver, her love for wildlife and passion for filmmaking allows Beth to give voice to the increasing fragility of all earth's ecosystems, above and below our endangered oceans.

During 9/11, Beth assisted on productions for tvbmedia & Swiss TV in New York City. In 2002 Beth served as production manager and assisted in filming the acclaimed 43-minute investigative documentary, “Operation Latin Phoenix,” for WDR television (Germany) that has been edited into a number of versions for international broadcast. She also produced short pieces about the Aquarius project, a joint NASA and NOAA mission to train astronauts at an underwater facility in the Florida Keys as well as a show about wake vortex encounters, following the airline disaster in Queens, NY. . In 2004 she produced & filmed the promotional video for the Biscayne Nature Center.

During 2005, Beth produced a High Definition educational film on the endangered Florida manatee, with her partner, world-renowned, award-winning marine cinematographer Tom Campbell as DP (, for the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park visitor center. She also worked as production assistant & still photographer for the"Breathe!”," and currently is working with Tom on their Ultra High Definition 4K, 5K, and 6K stock footage library.

To learn more about the world she lives in, Beth travels to wild places to film the lives of animals and the habitats in which they live. Of special interest to her is documenting the work of scientists dedicated to gathering the information upon which conservation guidelines are established to help preserve our amazing world. Beth says that sharing with others, teaching through photos, articles, lectures and on-site commentary, makes her experiences all the more rewarding.

From polar bears to penguins, Beth has had exciting adventures between the poles including 5 weeks spent as a guide with polar bears in the Canadian Arctic, camping among musk ox in Greenland, swimming with humpback whales in Tonga, hiking among the wild creatures of the North American Rockies and Alaska, diving shipwrecks in the Caribbean & Florida Keys, and perambulating with penguins on 14 voyages to Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands. She has been elected into the prestigious Society of Women Geographers.

Beth challenges herself to the goals of production excellence, scientific integrity, and communication accuracy in her work in order to produce films that inspire people to make a difference in the world by educating and informing the viewing public about scientific, environmental, and educational projects that help preserve and protect the planet. Her background as a naturalist, scientist, writer, diver and photographer are well suited to promote - through her award-winning pictures, words, and films - conservation issues that positively affect life on our planet.
