Special guest Gabby Salazar joins NANPA President Dawn Wilson and Wild & Exposed co-hosts Mark Raycroft and Jason Loftus to talk about her current research studying what types of images influence people to support conservation. Is it the beautiful image of a dolphin in the wild, a dolphin caught in a net, or a dolphin affected by marine plastic? Gabby may not have answers yet, but she has lots of other great questions to share.

This amazing “33-years-young” photographer tells us about her travels in Mauritius, Indonesia, Guatemala, Madagascar, and India—including her work as a Fulbright Scholar—but confesses that her favorite nature photography experience is something much closer to home.

NANPA President Dawn Wilson and Wild & Exposed‘s Michael Mauro and Mark Raycroft sit down with Canon Explorer of Light Charles Glatzer, one of NANPA’s long-time members, for the inaugural episode.

Chas covers a lot of terrain with his co-hosts—from mishaps in photographing bull elk to responsible wildlife photography behavior, emerging technology pros and cons, the benefits of NANPA membership, and that magical feeling of being in the field in the golden hour. “You’ve got to be dead not to feel that,” Chas says.
