Conservation photographer and Filmmaker, Kristi Odom, has worked in some of the earth's most remote locations to help document stories that will help protect our planet's biodiversity. She is an internationally awarded photographer, an associate fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers, and a motivational speaker. She believes strongly in the power of photography to help create positive change. From native bees of the Amazon to local fungi, from flower carrying Pikas to some of the world's most fierce creatures, her work focuses on connecting people emotionally to animals and celebrating those who fight to protect the natural world.  

Her accolades include over 60 international photography awards including 2 Nature’s Best Photography awards, which exhibited her images at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. She also was included in National Geographic’s 2021 collection for Best Animal Photos. Her work has appeared either online and/or in print for the following clients: National Geographic, Washington Post, The New York Times, Forbes, Rolling Stone, Nikon, Microsoft and Outside Magazine.

By using the art of photography I want to help people share empathy for one another and make people care more for the natural world.
