Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures.
Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography.
“Nature photography” overlaps the fields of — and is sometimes considered an overarching category including — “wildlife photography,” “landscape photography,” and “garden photography.”
Nature photographs are published in scientific, travel and cultural magazines such as National Geographic Magazine, National Wildlife Magazine
and Audubon Magazine or other more specific magazines such as Outdoor Photographer and Nature’s Best Photography.
