Melissa Groo is a wildlife conservation photographer and writer, who considers herself a “wildlife biographer” as much as photographer. She seeks to capture unfolding stories in animals’ lives that evoke respect and compassion in the viewer. She writes a bimonthly column on wildlife photography for Outdoor Photographer magazine, and is a contributing editor to Audubon magazine. Last year, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology released Melissa’s masterclass course on bird photography.
Melissa advises numerous organizations, publications, and photo contests on ethics in nature photography. She is passionate about promoting ethical fieldcraft that honors wild animals and keeps their welfare and wildness paramount.
Melissa’s photographs and articles have been published in numerous print and online magazines including Smithsonian, Audubon, National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, National Wildlife, and Natural History, and she has received awards and honorable mentions in national and international photography competitions. Her fine art prints have been exhibited in numerous art galleries and museums, including the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. In 2017, the Melissa Groo Gallery was installed at Audubon Greenwich in Greenwich, Connecticut. Melissa is an Associate Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers.
