Summary
The International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) is a U.S. based non-profit organization whose mission is to further environmental and cultural conservation through photography. The world needed to know about the mission of the iLCP.

Challenge
Produce a documentary film exploring a contemporary account of the emerging genre of conservation photography.

Solution
Evermaven traveled to multiple cities throughout North America to interview over 20 leading voices in the conservation photography movement. Our team sat down with Dr. Jane Goodall, National Geographic Editor-at-Large Michael “Nick” Nichols, and iLCP founding president Cristina Mittermeier, among many other prominent creatives who all shared candid thoughts on the power of photography and its value as an effective conservation tool. We coupled the strong emotional narrative with stunning photography from over 40 conservation photographers. Witness: Defining Conservation Photography continues to tour the film circuit throughout the world and has likely been screened at over 50 different venues. Witness also remains one of the most viewed videos commissioned by the iLCP.

This documentary film was inspired by “Conservation Photography”, a thesis by Carlton Ward, Jr.
