The Power of Place, Conservation Photography and Jerry Monkman

Photographer and filmmaker Jerry Monkman wants us to think about the significance
of natural places when we look at his imagery. For 20+ years he has devoted his work to drawing attention to New England’s streams, forests, fields, bays and other places of
natural beauty.

To date, he has created photography for more than 120 land conservation projects in
New England. And his newest documentary venture, The Power of Place, aims to
“compel decision makers to conserve iconic New Hampshire landscapes at risk due to an electricity transmission project”. To learn more about this 30-minute film, visit Jerry’s Kickstarter page.

He also leads workshops, co-authors books and runs the EcoPhotography stock and photography company with his wife Marcy. Being a conservation, adventure and travel photographer requires Jerry to get out there with his camera gear. So we had to ask him about his current go-to outdoor camera bag!

“My favorite camera bag right now is the Flipside Sport 15L AW, which I like because it carries a good amount of gear comfortably for adventure trips, and I love the ability to flip it over and access my gear while the waist strap is still connected – it’s super convenient. In a nutshell, it makes it easy to hike, ski, or bike with my gear and then quickly gain access to it when photo ops occur.”

Check out Jerry’s portfolio and look into upcoming workshops at his web site.
