Florida based photographer, George Wilson, grew up in a family where art was commonplace through multiple generations. As a self-taught photographer, the camera became George's medium of choice during his high school years and went with him as he traveled through Europe as an exchange student. These images produced his first major photography award from The Boston Globe Newspaper Company.

His professional career began in newspaper work and he has been published in both national and international publications. Later work began to evolve into a drive for conservation of our wild spaces. Taking inspiration from several great outdoor photographers, George is in the process of creating a body of work dedicated to the wilderness areas of Central Florida needing protection in hopes that through the medium of photography we all will be inspired to protect and preserve our natural resources.

In 2017, George was considered for the Pulitzer Award in the Breaking News Photography category for his images taken during the tragic PULSE Nightclub shootings in Orlando. The images are now held in the permanent collection of the Orange County History Center and formed a major part of the PULSE Exhibit for the One Year Memorial Observations.
