How Can Photographers help with Climate Action?

Like many photographers, I eventually found myself taken with a deeper understanding of the camera, using it as a tool to create considered images. Initially, I became consumed with skills development, acquiring the right equipment, and practicing techniques needed to fill this artistic void – in my own unique way. Paired with a parallel interest in geography and travel, I’m always reaching to explore the world at each available opportunity.

However, recently I have started to think from slightly different angle – Do my photography habits and routine result in a positive net benefit towards our planet - such as contributing to climate action, excessive tourism, pollution etc.? And by extension, are fellow photographers involved; and in what ways?

During my presentation I would like to share with you some of my past work, as well as some recent projects which have helped me to think about these questions in particular. I’ll share a few perspectives from professionals whom I’ve looked up to for inspiration. I’d like to openly discuss what projects your members might be engaged with - as well as their feelings towards the impact of their work.

I’m hopeful to leave your members with something to consider – we all should be involved in climate action -

 

in a small way.
