NANPA Celebrates 12 Years of Nature Photography Day
June 15, 2017
About Nature Photography Day A dozen years later, enthusiasm for Nature Photography Day has grown worldwide. This day is designated by NANPA to promote the enjoyment of nature photography, and to explain how images have been used to advance the cause of conservation and protect plants, wildlife, and landscapes locally and worldwide. In 2006, NANPA celebrated the first Nature Photography Day and placed it in McGraw-Hill’s reference work, Chases’s Calendar of Events. Many media and websites took notice. Since then, people throughout the North American continent–from overseas, too–have discovered numerous ways to observe and enjoy the day. NANPA encourages people everywhere to enjoy the day by using a camera to explore the natural world. A backyard, park, or other place close by can be just right. Walking, hiking, and riding a bike to take photos are activities that don’t lead to a carbon footprint. And fresh air can do wonders for the spirit!
