By 1972, he was providing freelance photo stories to many national magazines, including Natural History, National Geographic, Smithsonian, and International Wildlife. After becoming a contract photographer with National Geographic in the mid 1980s, Wolinsky came to specialize in international, historical, scientific, and cultural photographic essays that require in-depth research.
