Conservation Storytelling, with Jaymi Heimbuch & Anne Readel: The B&H Photography Podcast

08/18/2022Link2

Nature and wildlife photographers seeking to put their images to work for the good of the planet will love this week’s podcast. Our first guest, Jaymi Heimbuch, founded the Conservation Visual Storytellers Academy to teach photographers how to use their pictures for a larger purpose. Listen in as Heimbuch discusses ways to harness the three A’s—Action, Audience, and Affect—and successfully target the people you want your work to reach.

After a break, we hear from Heimbuch’s star student, Anne Readel, who reveals how the viral spread of her story on No-Mow May enabled her to recast her message with different angles, increasing the story’s reach. Stay to the end for Readel’s offbeat story about living with your urban turkey neighbors. Please join us for this inspiring discussion about conservation storytelling, and learn how the aforementioned three A’s can be used to craft the focus of your nature and wildlife pictures and expand their impact.

Hey guys,

 

You mention that there will be links to your guests websites. The are none. Neither in the show notes or here on this blog. You really should put them there. It's just fair for everyone.

Hi Peter R, thanks very much for writing in with this comment. I agree with you wholeheartedly on this, yet I'd like to point out that both of our guests names are hotlinked to their respective websites in the Explora story text. I had also provided additional links when delivering content for this episode, but unfortunately it did not get published. Thanks again for this helpful comment and for listening to the Podcast!
