Introduction to Conservation Photography

Join Linda Wilinski as she shares how your lens can become a powerful tool to create impactful stories. Learn how photographs can establish an emotional connection between humans and animals to assist in conservation efforts. Nature enthusiasts, photographers, naturalists and anyone that is passionate about wildlife and nature will enjoy this program as Linda gives tips on ethical photography and how to capture beautiful images. Conservation Photography is storytelling in its purest form and Linda can't wait to share some insights from her own experience on land and underneath the surface.

Linda Wilinski is a conservation photographer with focus on freshwater springs. She is a certified Florida Master Naturalist, attended Crealde’ School of Art and has won several prizes along with exhibiting her photography throughout Florida.

Wilinski uses her art to tell stories of Florida’s incredible wildlife and advocate for its protection. Living on the Rainbow River has enabled her to spend most of her free time kayaking, snorkeling,

and educating others about the importance of Florida’s springs. Her vision is to reconnect people with the outdoors, to bring awareness of Florida’s beauty as well as shedding light onto its hardships.

The purpose of her art is to encourage conservation.

Linda has formed a special bond with some of the local wildlife and is also known as “the otter whisperer”. She volunteers as a board member of Rainbow River Conservation, is part of the Florida Springs Council Communication Advisory Board and donates to non-profit organizations on a regular basis.
