Cristina Mittermeier: Conservation Photographer

Producer/Director: Missy McIntosh

“Courage is a recurring theme in my life because it takes a lot of courage to pivot and it takes a lot of courage to go through a door into something unknown. When you have the courage to walk through that door and you don’t know where it’s gonna lead, it leads to amazing places.”

Cristina Mittermeier is an award-winning conservationist and photographer who has seen her work published in respected publications like National GeographicSmithsonian, and Science throughout her epic career. Starting her life as a scientist, the Mexico City-born photographer began her career evolution later in life, deciding to use her camera to visually capture the changing environment.
