How to Shoot Your Passion: Techniques and Ideas for Social, Environmental and Cause-Related Photography

Photographer and conservationist Cristina Mittermeier uses her camera as a passport to document the complex issues where conservation of wild nature and human needs intersect. Her subjects range from indigenous people of the Amazon to climate change and ocean conservation. Cristina uses her passion for photography to influence the fate of our planet’s natural resources and is now a Sony Artisan of Imagery, one of only seven photographers representing Sony’s new cameras.
