Have We Met Yet?

Hello! I'm Jaymi Heimbuch

From the time I first picked up a camera to document wildlife, I've focused on putting images to work for the benefit of the natural world.

So that pull you feel? The one that drives you to do something that matters with your photos and films?

Yeah, I am right there with you.

Experiencing wilderness and witnessing wildlife is my passion and conservation photography is my purpose. But that goes WAY BEYOND image-making. After 10 years working as a writer and photo editor, I went full-time into conservation photography. And I realized something that changed me…

So many visual storytellers want to make an impact… and have no idea how.

That's when I recognized my own ‘Why': helping my fellow creatives reach their biggest goals in conservation visual storytelling. Because a win for one of us is a win for the entire planet.

I founded Conservation Visual Storytellers Academy to train photographers and filmmakers who have a passion for nature, conservation and science.

Working alongside extraordinary students and members every day fires. me. UP. And I'm thrilled that I now get to work alongside you!
