Wild Spaces proudly supports the World Land Trust and we have committed 10% of our revenue to supporting projects focused on protecting and restoring the world's wilderness.
In 2018, whilst on a climbing trip to the Tetons in Wyoming, our founder Matt met a group of independent photographers who had recently returned from a self-funded tour of Alaska and were speaking to local galleries / restaurants / coffee shops to get their recent work exhibited in the hope of driving print sales.
Matt quickly established though speaking with them, that they'd need to sell upwards of 50 prints just to break even from their trip and it became apparent how challenging making a living was for many independent photographers, especially without regular commercial work or any major online presence. Needless to say, the coronavirus pandemic created further challenges with restictions to travel and fewer still commercial photography opportunites.
In December 2020, Wild Spaces was launched with a simple mission: to support talented independent photographers and harness the power of their work to drive appreciation for the remaining wilderness on our planet.
Wild Spaces are committed to supporting outdoor/adventure photographers dedicated to documenting and capturing the world’s wilderness by giving them a specialist platform to share their work, the narrative around it and the opportunity to sell gallery quality archival prints.
