Jerry Monkman is a conservation, and adventure photographer and filmmaker based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Since 2000, he has created photography for more than 120 land conservation projects in New England, and his images have contributed to raising awareness and funds to protect a diverse collection of wild places, from a small Connecticut trout stream not far from New York City, to New Hampshire’s Great Bay, to Maine’s Katahdin Lake in the Northern Forest. With his wife Marcy he runs EcoPhotography, his stock and assignment business that services editorial, commercial, and non-profit clients.

In March 2015, he released his first feature-length documentary film, The Power of Place.
