The next day, for my volunteer hours I assisted wildlife photojournalist, Steve Winter on setting up a make-shift camera trap to try and explain his creative and scientific process of photographing extremely rare, wild big cats. I know, I know, big sacrifice, right??
And for fulfilling my volunteer “work “, I was given access to hours and hours of heart breaking, inspiring and exciting films that “showcase nonfiction stories about environmental, cultural, climbing, political and social justice issues that matter.” – Mountain Film Website www.mountainfilm.org
At the 2014 Mountain Film Festival I got to meet Dean Potter and his pup Whisper, an amazing 14 year old climber named Kai Lightner, and attended a seminar that taught tips on how to start and run a successful non-profit at the amazing Wilkinson Public Library as well as watch the amazing films.
THIS YEAR I WAS A STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER!!! Which meant…***drum roll** All access.
