This week, the person is Yann Arthus Bertrand, a French photographer, journalist, and environmentalist. Bertrand is best known for his beautiful aerial photography.
After a growing interest in conserving the environment and controlling climate change, Bertrand founded the Action Carbone, a non-profit program whose slogan is "Calculate, reduce and offset your CO2 emissions".
His interest started after finding out the negative impact that his helicopter travels had on the environment. And now, Bertrand, to compensate for this, finances organisations and causes that promote renewable energies and encourage reforestation in aims of reducing the impact of climate change.
Below are a few of Green Eve's favourite Bertrand aerial photography:

Bertrand also developed an interest in the photography of animals, especially cats and dogs, alongside their owners.

Not only is his work beautiful and captivating, but what makes it even more meaningful and awe-inspiring is the eco-conscious person behind the lens!
If only we all had a little of Mr. Bertrand in us!
P.S: Don't be mean, think green ;)
