My name is Marissa Farra and I am the photographer behind “mfarraphotos” on social media. I am a Conservation Photographer, specializing in plants, wildlife, and natural landscapes.
My goal is to build visual connections between people and nature so that people can gain a new appreciation for the flora and fauna on this incredible planet. I have my Wildlife Conservation & Management degree from Delaware Valley University and have taken classes since in Tree ID, and Tree care (I really love plants!). I have a background in environmental/agriculture education having worked with Peace Valley Nature Center, Fox Chase Farm, Bucks County Audubon Society and also privately as a science teacher!
This blog was created because I not only want to share my photography, but also because I want to use those photos as teaching tools so that people can get a better understanding of natural phenomenons, learn about wildlife & habitats and how they play an important role in the health of the planet, and make the world a better place through personal action (ie. building wildlife brush piles, gardening organically, planting natives, using less plastic, etc…).
In case you were wondering, I do sell my art, with a portion of the proceeds going back to wildlife conservation, habitat protection, and environmental education. If you’re looking to make a purchase, head over to my Products page and then contact me!
I’m looking forward to this endeavor and hope that you are too!
