  1. Hey everyone! I'm trying to set a camera up on a grassland bird nest and get photos of the babies being fed. I would need to be pretty far away so I don't disturb the birds. I was trying to use the Sony edge imaging app but you have to be fairly close for that. Does anyone know of a way to trigger photos from further away? I could always just put it on continuous shoot... I was just trying to think of another solution!
  2. Vital Impacts has announced our new round of grants and mentorships. They are offering one grant totaling $20,000 and six grants worth $5,000 each, all dedicated to nurturing documentary projects that spotlight solutions-based environmental narratives. In addition to the grants, Vital Impacts will select ten emerging photographers to participate in an intensive mentorship program and will invite all applicants to participate in an online mentorship series. The application deadline is July. Here's the link: https://vitalimpacts.org/pages/the-vital-impacts-environmental-photography-grant Are any of you thinking of applying? What project are you dreaming about?!

  5. Hey everyone! Did you know that iLCP has a playlist on YouTube that is a collection of videos featuring iLCP members? It's a great place to start learning more about conservation storytelling. Check it out! https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXAINVKEVmMRCto_Djpd-ZAnMiHFiiO2I&si=CrjGFJtrQsu7rOLh
  6. I don't know about you all but I am so thrilled spring is here! I've been out photographing a ton of scientific research and recently that's been a lot of bird work! Here are a few of my favorite shots: American Kestrel baby bluebirds Eastern Meadowlark
  7. Since I photograph bees a ton, I loved this article on photographing pollinators in flight! https://alphauniverse.com/stories/how-to-photograph-elusive-insects-and-precious-pollinators/ Do any of you do a lot of macro photography? I'd love to see some below! Here are a few of mine:

  9. Hi everyone! I'm Brooke, I'm on staff at iLCP. We are thrilled to have publicly launched this club today and hope to see many new members.

  10. Thanks for taking the time to chat with us Hannah! Long live the bees!
  11. I love the messaging of storytelling close to home!
  12. A key principle of iLCP's mission is to empower ethical conservation photography -- this means we regularly evaluate the ethics of community involvement, photo licensing, and even wildlife/photographer interactions. In our newest StoryMap, A Light Touch, iLCP Senior Fellow Doug Gimesy explores the ethics of photography with artificial light when photographing wildlife. Following a chaotic encounter with over-lit photography and the little penguins of Melbourne, Gimesy began to consider the impacts additional light could have on certain species. "What I saw that night started me thinking about the impact a photographer’s lighting could have on wildlife – whether using flash in the field or even on captive animals. Having been trained as a bioethicist, I really wanted to make sure I was doing the ‘right thing’." Check out the Story Map here: https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/a2132c9f3a3945cc9fdbd8490338c291
