When she was 11 years old, Gabby Salazar’s father gave her a camera. Gabby was hooked on nature photography after watching a blue jay through the camera at a friend’s backyard bird garden. Now, 17 years later, she works as a conservation photographer, using her camera to tell stories about rare and endangered species across the globe.

Gabby is a U.S. Fulbright Scholar in Photography, a National Geographic Young Explorer, and a member of the Emerging League of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP). In 2014, Gabby became the youngest ever President of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). Gabby believes in the power of photography to change minds and open eyes. She also teaches photography to children and teenagers around the world as a way to connect them with the natural environment. Her work is represented by National Geographic Creative.
