Meet the host

Hi, I’m Jaymi Heimbuch

Settle into a front-row seat to the captivating world of conservation photography, guided by an experienced pro who’s been there, done that, and is eager to share her hard-won wisdom with you.

I’m Jaymi, your podcast host and personal mentor in this exciting journey.

With nearly 14 years of experience as a professional conservation photographer and photo editor, I know exactly what it takes to make a difference with your camera.

And that’s because I’ve faced the same doubts, fears, and challenges that you might be experiencing right now.

Battling imposter syndrome. Wondering if my photos are any good. Feeling overwhelmed about how to build a photography practice that’s both fulfilling and pays the bills. I’ve navigated through it all. 

In the years I spent tackling the ins and outs of this field, I’ve learned the power of step-by-step systems and tools.

In fact, turning creative chaos into clear roadmaps is my specialty.

And I started this podcast so I could share it all with you.  

Here, I open up my treasure trove of knowledge and experiences, creating a space where you can learn, grow, and find success far faster than going it alone.

With each episode, you’ll discover:

  • Inspiring stories from my own journey
  • Expert advice on tackling the unique challenges of conservation photography
  • A supportive community where you can share your passion and find encouragement

So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work making a difference, one click at a time.
