Telling important stories about the struggles that occur through the coexistence of wildlife and humanity is no easy task, yet it is of tremendous importance, especially today. Telling the stories can bridge the gaps between groups that disagree on handling these delicate situations while shedding light on potential solutions that may meet the values that coexist in both groups of people.
Today's guest on the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen Podcast, Morgan Heim, is a master at telling such stories about wildlife and human interaction. She founded Neon Raven Story Labs, a storytelling and strategy platform for conservation, and in 2020 co-launched Her Wild Vision Initiative to raise the voices of diverse women in the craft of conservation visual storytelling.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
How Morgan got into conservation photography and wildlife photojournalism.
Telling the stories about conservation that are close to home.
The coexistence of wildlife and man and telling the stories about those intersections.
How to get started in conservation photography.
How limitations can improve our photography.
Ignoring the "shoulds" that are in our mind.
Telling the human side of the story in conservation.
Showcasing our work in a fine art aesthetic.
How to remove barriers for new and more diverse talent in the photography industry.

As photographers we are often trying to figure out what we should do with our photographs. Of late, it has become more popular to produce a coffee table style book to showcase our work; however, not all photography books of this style are created equal.
