Through working with LAMAVE, I’ve been lucky enough to spend time hanging out with conservation photographer Steve DeNeef. I love Steve’s work, not just because his photographs are stunning, but because of the approach he takes to conservation issues. His research, and patience in investigating all aspects of an issue means his photographs, and articles tell a well rounded story - including both environmental and social aspects.
This is his latest article on using photography to promote protection, and to inspire change.
