Wild Idea Lab is a membership community designed specifically for emerging and established photographers, filmmakers, and artists working in conservation and science communication.



Find new levels of creativity and strength in a community built especially for you. 


The very nature of our conservation storytelling work means we often find ourselves working alone, or in creatively isolating situations. It's all too easy to feel unsure of the next best step in a story, a project, or in your business as a professional. Worst of all, it's easy to run low on creativity, compassion, optimism or patience.


Wild Idea Lab is your antidote. 


Wild Idea Lab brings together conservation creatives from around the world, with wildly diverse backgrounds in experience, skill sets, ways of approaching stories and advocacy, and unique connections to all aspects of the conservation world. 


Through this platform, we can far more easily:
 

  • make new connections with peers and collaborators across disciplines and creative mediums
  • find answers to tough questions, from ethics to business
  • spark fresh ideas we'd never come up with working solo
  • troubleshoot concepts and projects to find a brilliant path forward
  • learn surprising and helpful skills from one another
  • find extra support during our conservation efforts
  • share opportunities for professional development


Wild Idea Lab is where we come together from across the world and across disciplines to help one another make big, positive impacts through visual storytelling.




No matter where you are in your journey as a conservation visual storyteller, you're in the right place.


Whether part time, full time, amateur, pro, if you're on your first project or on your fiftieth assignment, you need a community that works toward your success.

You need resources for learning fresh aspects of this work, such as access to inspiring masterclasses and informative articles that address topics specific to our unique work as photographers, filmmakers and artists - knowledge found exclusively inside Wild Idea Lab.

You need support from peers and pros as you dive into new stories, navigate through projects, build buzz around your finished work, or launch conservation campaigns. 

You need information for building stronger foundations for your business or new connections for financial success in this field. From facilitated mastermind groups to networking opportunities, you'll find help inside Wild Idea Lab. 

You need a place to bounce your ideas off of other people as you wrestle with a big project - people who speak the same creative language, yet have varied backgrounds and unique insights.

You need a community of people who have the answers to the highly specific questions you come across in your work - answers you can't find anywhere else. 


Wild Idea Lab provides resources specific to the needs of conservation visual storytellers, and helps you rapidly hit new levels of success in your work.
