Experience the wild side of Cape Cod and beyond – through the lens of a raw and wonderful nature that just so happens to have humans living nearby.
Through their striking images, nature photographers John and Pam King hope to bring attention to the wonder of Earth’s biodiversity.
The Common Flat is a special tidal area that has existed for thousands of years off of the “elbow” of Cape Cod. This area is a crucial habitat for diverse species – including marine mammals, migrating birds, shellfish, crustaceans and fin fish.
Today, this sand bar is part of the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge. Remarkably, human beings have played a positive role in this ecosystem through the millennia, by harvesting fish and shellfish with traditional methods. We all share a common interest in the Common Flat’s continued well-being as a vibrant natural habitat.
In recent years John and Pam King have been pursuing a lifelong passion to experience and record the earth’s wild places and wild things through their photography. They co-founded The Common Flat Project in 2011 to foster a message of conservation and raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity on our planet especially on Cape Cod. The Kings' first book, "Wild Cape Cod: Free by Nature,” was published in 2012.
John and Pam have two grown children, four wonderful grandchildren, and call Chatham, Massachusetts home when they are not traveling the world.
