You're a…

Visual Storytelling Superstar!

You've fully embraced the title of conservation photographer AND you've embraced that the underlying why of all your creative work is to move the needle for the causes you care most about.

You know what you want and where you're headed in the long run.

Sure, you don't always know the steps to get there, but you aren't afraid to keep putting one foot in front of the other no matter what.

You also know that along with making an impact, you want to make an income.

You're ready to find new ways to consistently get your work in front of publications and potential clients so you can earn paychecks while helping to save Planet Earth.

Business structure, time management, community, and mentorship are all on your mind just as much as your shot lists and Lightroom catalog. You might feel comfortable with these things in other fields but… in conservation photography?

You're driven – but not necessarily always confident in your abilities (whether that's behind the camera or behind the steering the wheel of a new big story or project.)

Have We Met Yet?

Hello! I'm Jaymi Heimbuch

Jaymi Heimbuch waving

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!
