Coming Soon: The CLIMATE CHANGE PHOTO WORKSHOP SERIES
In collaboration with Leica, Seedlight will soon announce a series of four workshops to be held in 4 climate change "hotspots" around the world. This innovative workshop series will bring together aspiring environmental photographers to tell the story of some of our planet's most critical climate challenges and solutions.Register Now
Following the model of other Seedlight workshops, each 10 day project will team up our photographer participants with environmental organizations who are tackling climate change issues. Together, we will capture these stories with the level of urgency required to inspire adaptive practices at a community level. Throughout the process we will create outreach materials to effect change at a global policy level.
Each workshop location will be revisited for 5 consecutive years as we build our collective body of work on the stories of that region. Our images will contribute to a heightened awareness of climate change by creating powerful tools to visually communicate the environmental stories that have the potential to change the destiny of our planet.

Like Seed Light Workshops, Think Tank Photo believes that storytelling through photography remains one of the most powerful tools for social change. A picture is worth not only a thousand words, it can be worth a thousand minds changed, a thousand votes, a thousand behaviors transformed. To protect the environment we must first educate the species that has the greatest impact on it.
