The Power of Purposeful Projects: Elisabeth Brentano on Conservation and Adventure Travel [EP 408]

Hey everyone, welcome back to the Outdoor Biz Podcast and Episode 408 with Elisabeth Brentano, brought to you this week by Four Wheel Campers.

Elisabeth is a writer, photographer, and producer based in Southern California. Her wanderlust has taken her worldwide to capture travel and environmental stories. And as much as she loves shooting natural wonders in far-flung places, these days, she prefers road-tripping through the last remaining patches of the Wild West.

Her love for travel and nature shines through in her work for tourism bureaus, environmental nonprofits, and publishers, and she’s also worked with global brands like Adobe, Marriott, and Samsung. Her goal is to push her clients to invest in more purposeful projects, and she is always looking for ways to incorporate sustainability and conservation practices into her commercial work.
