STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Ian Shive, winner of the 2011 Ansel Adams Award, visited the KCAL9 studios Monday to talk about his new photography book.

Shive’s “The National Parks: Our American Landscape” chronicles the nation’s treasures and won him the Ansel Adams Award which is the Sierra Club’s highest photography distinction and acknowledges the accomplishments of photographers whose talents have made superlative contributions to furthering conservation causes.

Shive pays homage to America’s greatest national treasures through an ambitious collection of breathtaking imagery encompassing richly colorful giant sweeping vistas to smaller but still remarkable, captured minutiae of Acadia, Denali, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains, White Sands, Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks, to name a few. Placing Shive in the illustrious company of past award recipients such as the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Eckhart Tolle, and Deepak Chopra, in May 2010, The National Parks: Our American Landscape garnered the Nautilus Book Award, Gold Place, in the Great Peacemakers category.

Shive also has a new smartphone app that features his work.
