Image-Doctors.pngIn this podcast, we talk about our four-day shoot in South Texas, USA. We had a great experiencing shooting from specially-designed photo blinds on private lands as guests of Lens and Land, a consortium of landowners who are opening up their property to photographers in an effort to promote conservation of the Rio Grande Valley region.

We flew to McAllen, Texas for several days of shooting on private ranches as guests of John and Audrey Martin. In an effort to promote conservation, a group called Images for Conservation (ICF) has been formed. Private landowners are encouraged to create photo opportunities on their properties and invite photographers to spend time at their property. The benefits are two-fold: landowners generate a revenue stream by maintaining native habitat, and photographers are rewarded with a shooting experience that just isn't possible in public areas.

To find out more about photographic opportunities in Texas, visit South Texas Lens and Land or Images for Conservation.
