Welcome to the website of the Nature and Wildlife Photographers of Long Island (NWPLI), a growing community of Nature Photographers whose images are some of the finest Long Island has to offer.

We meet once per month, see calendar for location and dates of our meetings. Meetings are informal yet both educational and fun. Normally we have a lecture or slide show by either one of our members or a guest speaker. This is followed by a monthly photo contest and then a critique session. You don't have to be an experienced photographer to join us.  

Long Island is surrounded by water and as such has many excellent spots for nature photography. Hawks, Snowy Owls, Osprey, Ducks and Songbirds to Seals dot our shores. Our State Parks are abundant as well and include Mink, Red Foxes, Wild Turkeys, Deer, Reptiles and more. The four seasons are all unique and as such we have many different things to seek out for each of the seasons. The best part is, for the most part, the above is free and just waiting for you to squeeze that shutter. We hope you will seek us out as the experts on Long Island for Nature Photography.
