Girls Who Click Announces First Ever Ambassadors

Petaluma, California, October 30, 2020: Girls Who Click, a non-profit, is pleased to announce their first class of Ambassadors. In the first initiative of its kind, the GWC Ambassador program will propel diverse women into the professional arena and break the glass ceiling that has defined professional nature photography for too long.

“Nature photography is a white, male-dominated profession and we want to change that,” states Suzi Eszterhas, GWC Founder and Executive Director.

Selected from over 150 applicants, the class is made up of 24 talented female-identified nature photographers and videographers. These photographers range from 16-30 years of age and come from a broad spectrum of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds throughout the world. The Ambassadors are motivated to break into the professional nature photography industry while advocating for conservation efforts worldwide. Each Ambassador will benefit from a year of personalised mentorship from an established professional photographer, gaining key insights to the industry and learning how to succeed in a male-dominated industry.

Girls Who Click is a non-profit organisation founded by professional wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas, in 2017, to address the lack of women in professional nature photography. Girls Who Click believes photography is not just about taking beautiful photographs – it’s about making a difference. They aim to inspire a new generation of female nature photographers and conservationists through free nature photography workshops and their Ambassador Program.
