Organization celebrates environmental photography

Employment of photographers is expected to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These professionals can choose to work for private studios or publications, or freelance. Their work can be culturally impactful, or used for personal and creative purposes.
In appreciation of photographers whose work addresses important issues, the Alliance for Environmental Education sought to collect natural imagery from across the world. In response, a total of 30 photographs have been selected by Al Weber - photographer and former Friends of Photography trustee - and will be displayed at the Environmental Photography Exhibition. The show runs through November at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado.
The Environmental Photography Exhibition is part of the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, and was formed by the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education in order to further the goals of earth-based organizations.
The project was inspired by William Henry Jackson's photographs of the Yellowstone region, which helped convince the U.S. Congress to create the country's first national park.
