Nature Photography for Everyone

Saturday, March 23rd, 2024
1:00pm – 5:00pm
Granite Dells

Let’s go to nature, see what the day brings, and spend the day making pictures. Join artist Taylor McKinnon in the field to discuss composition, light, and the fundamentals of how cameras work. You’ll get the chance to practice isolating interesting and beautiful subjects near and far and finding lovely visual order amidst the scenes of the Mogollon Highlands. If you have a camera, bring it. And if you have a tripod, bring that too. And if you have neither, perhaps only a smartphone, that’ll work, too. All are welcome in this practice of natural history through the lens.

Taylor McKinnon is an artist by accident and an activist by trade. McKinnon is the Southwest Director for the Center for Biological Diversity, overseeing the Center’s work to protect wildlands and endangered species in the Southwest. Mckinnon pursues nature photography as a practice of natural history— of mutually reinforcing, deeply intertwined endeavors of observation, art, love, and activism. There’s a fight to protect most places he shoots. In his advocacy, he works on a variety of fronts and has helped spearhead campaigns to end federal fossil fuel leasing and ban uranium mining around the Grand Canyon.
