Hear from photographers whose incredible images reveal stories about the natural world—both close-to-home and in the farthest reaches of our planet. 

Local stories, when documented and shared, can make big impacts on humans and nature alike. Jaymi Heimbuch, nature photographer and founder of Conservation Visual Storytellers Academy, covers what it means to look locally, how to amplify stories far and wide, and the intrinsic value in following interests and passions.

The Arctic is one of the world’s most rapidly changing regions of the planet. Lianna Nixon, photographer and filmmaker, shares her experience documenting people and places during the MOSAiC Expedition, and about how conservation photography can foster connections with science for the sake of both planet and people.

All NightSchool virtual programming is intended for audiences 21+.
