The North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) was officially incorporated in 1994
More than 100 nature photographers initiated NANPA when they met at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown, New York. Roger Tory Peterson, the famous ornithologist, artist, and nature photographer, brought the group together to discuss the future of nature photography.
At that meeting, two important tenets were established that have remained key tenets of the organization: that the new association would be for nature photography, not restricted to photographers, and that it would represent all of North America, not just the United States.
