Ethical Photography

We all love to travel, visit incredible sights and in some cases meet locals but how do practice informed consent or in other words Ethical photography?  Amina is our guide for Turkey September 2023 and throughout her career as a photographer/travel blogger/photo tour operator, she has taught her clients how to take photos and do it ethically so as not to offend the people we are visiting.   

Presented by Amina Mohamed 
Amina has always been passionate about photography, travel, and philanthropy. In 2018 Amina returned to photography full-time, combining her two greatest passions – photography and philanthropy. While on a photo tour with clients in Uganda, she saw the direct impact their dollars make through her Amina’s Cameras For Girls Charity.
