Montana Audubon Conservation Education Center was founded in 1976, with the goal to conserve natural habitats to help native species flourish and ensure that the skies over future generations would continue to be diversely populated. Today, the center continues this work by connecting local community members with nature and teaching them how to protect it. Montana Audubon's recreational and educational programs, such as afterschool lessons and an Earth Day celebration, employ entertaining efforts to engage the public with the issue of wildlife conservation. The center's 72,000-square-mile swath on the Yellowstone River Basin also serves as an outdoor classroom to expose youth to local ecosystems including riparian zones, grasslands, and forests, and staffers place special focus on bringing underserved populations of young people to learn at the center.

The Heart Mountain Relocation Center opened in August 1942 and imprisoned more than 14,000 people throughout three years. It has since been transformed into the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, a world-class museum where visitors learn about the relocation of Japanese and Japanese-American people during World War II through the eyes of the imprisoned. The exhibits, artifacts, and oral histories also explore the underlying issues of prejudice, constitutional law, and social justice. The historic site also includes original camp structures, a war memorial built by internees, and a walking tour.

Married for nine years and a photography team for five, Brian and Jennifer Hartman bring an artistic touch and approach to their on-location photography. Employing a photojournalistic style and dramatic lighting, they capture solo subjects and groups during posed and candid moments, earning critical acclaim from the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and The Knot and placing images in the pages of Elle and Seattle Bride magazines.

Not content to simply point and shoot, the Hartmans light compositions using chiaroscuro or high-exposure natural lighting and often accentuate subjects with extreme angles, forced perspective, or unique natural surroundings. They shoot in vibrant color or black and white, and can edit photos to enhance colors or, by request, replace each subject?s face with Winston Churchill?s. Though the Hartmans use professional tools, they?re glad to help students break into photography via ultra-accessible devices such as the iPhone?following in the footsteps, they note, of Annie Leibovitz, who endorsed the iPhone?s camera on NBC Nightly News in 2011. When not conducting on-location sessions, Brian also leads large-scale workshops in which they pass on their knowledge through graphic slideshows and hands-on training.
