What is Conservation Photography?
Conservation photography is defined more by the way it is used than by what it contains. Conservation photography inspires action to protect and conserve the natural world. Within that broad category, almost any kind of photograph can be used for conservation purposes, including the following:
- Stock photos donated to local nature organizations.
- Scenics, wildlife, and macro shots of nature that are specifically requested.
- Images of people enjoying outdoor activities.
- Photos taken at organization events.
- Art photos donated for fundraising.
- Photographers helping educate organizations on how to use and present photos.
The GNPA Conservation Committee was chartered in January, 2018, to fulfill one of GNPA’s core principles.
Our goal is that members become aware of how they can engage in GNPA’s conservation efforts, and to help members develop the skills to make valuable contributions to conservation in Georgia.
