Wildlife photography is an increasingly popular hobby, and time in nature observing wildlife can bring great joy to a photographer. Wildlife images can be powerful tools for conservation and education. At the same time, our time with wildlife impacts the individual animal and potentially the entire ecosystem. Using her own photos to highlight the concepts, Sarah will discuss photography ethics and etiquette – what they are, and why they matter. She will also share tips for photographing our natural world in ways that create impactful images.

Speaker Bio:
Sarah Killingsworth is an award-winning wildlife conservation photographer and filmmaker who has always loved wildlife and exploring wild places.  Passionate about stories of coexistence, especially with native predators, Sarah is inherently curious about the intersection of humans and wildlife habitats, how wildlife adapts to ever-encroaching human development as well as ways we can work to protect species before they become endangered. A certified California Naturalist, Sarah is a member of the Board of the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin and the NANPA Ethics Committee and is also the Program Chair for the Keeping it Wild Youth Education and Outreach Program with Project Coyote.
