Hi! My name is Ethan Freese, I’m a producer at the Platte Basin Timelapse project in the School of Natural Resources. I’m originally from Lincoln, Nebraska and I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2018 with degrees in Fisheries and Wildlife and Grassland Ecology and Management. In 2020, I completed a Master's of Applied Science at UNL. My Master’s project used photos, videos, and audio to tell the story of the Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch, a proposed habitat and trail corridor just outside of Lincoln, Nebraska.
In my current position with Platte Basin Timelapse, I'm working on producing multimedia stories about the prairies and wetlands of Nebraska. I also work extensively with PBT's archive of time-lapse imagery from our 60+ cameras that are spread throughout the Platte River Basin in Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming.
I'm passionate about prairie conservation, and I hope to be able to use photography and videography to show others the importance of this undervalued ecosystem.
