Welcome to IGWP

Welcome to the International Guild of Wilderness Photographers.  This organization was formed as a medium to bring together wildlife and nature photographers of all skill levels, backgrounds and locations around the world in order to better our craft, to learn from others more skilled, knowledgeable and experienced and to socialize and meet new members of our community.

About IGWP

IGWP is a global organization set up to help advance the art of wildlife and nature photography, to provide a social network for those involved in the art and to help bring together photographers from all over the world. This website, built solely for use by members of IGWP, features a host of applications including a full featured social network component (similar to Facebook), article section, photo galleries, events calendar and a full featured forum/message board.  More applications will be added in time such as a classifieds section for those wishing to buy and sell photographic equipment.
