Using Your Photography for More Through EcoPhotography – Jerry Monkman Episode 82

314608_10150434294856970_1731357815_nSo, I have this friend, Adam Woodworth, who emailed me and said, “I have this friend who I think would be awesome for your podcast.” Naturally, I was immediately intrigued and wanted to hear more. Adam directed me to the website of Jerry Monkman. Jerry is an acclaimed photographer who is using his photography to preserve the land he loves and loves being in.

This is what I love about photographers. They realize they have a gift that can help a greater cause and they go out and make it happen. Jerry is the epitome of that. Not only is Jerry filled with relentless drive, he’s also filled with amazing photography knowledge, which in turn leads to tremendous photos!
