Photography is loved by people from all walks of life, no matter how old or how young. Two students from Harrison Trimble High School: Nick Poirier and Emma Leger are prime examples.
Both of these young photographers share a great passion for wildlife. At such a young age they have mastered photography skills, understand the importance of conservation, and practice ethical wildlife photography.
Emma and Nick are participating in the current fundraiser, Art for AWI (Atlantic Wildlife Institute) which goes on until Thursday April 29th 2021. The goal of Art for AWI is to help raise money through a social media fine art photo auction. The fundraiser is just in time for Atlantic Wildlife Institutes' busiest time of the year: baby season. All proceeds of the bids will be donated to AWI by the photographers. Their photo prints have brought in bids of $100 on each image. It is endearing to have such talented young artists willing to put the time in and help raise money for a good cause.
Nick has recently started a conservation Instagram account (@WildlifeNB) with the goal to highlight conservation achievements, and issues specifically in New Brunswick. Be sure to check out both of these talented individuals’ work!
