Fun Holiday – Nature Photography Day

June 15 is Nature Photography Day. The North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) created the day in 2006 as a way to encourage people to learn and enjoy capturing the beauty of nature through their cameras.

The day also promotes conservation through photography.

Nature photography is a branch of photography that is devoted to taking pictures of natural elements including landscapes, geological formations, and flora and fauna in their natural habitats and in zoos. As a rule, nature photography does not include photographing human subjects, though some exceptions can be made depending on the situation.

Preserving Nature's Bounties

NANPA is a non-profit organization based in the United States that promotes nature photography as a way to preserve and conserve nature and to promote appreciation of the bounties of our natural environment.

How to Celebrate?

  • Join a local nature photography club and participate in any events they may have on this day.
  • Take a nature photography class.
  • Take a hike with your family and friends and take in the nature around you, while capturing the scenes with your camera.
  • Share your favorite outdoorsy picture on social media.
  • Volunteer time and money to a local conservation organization.
