The NBP Exhibition at Children's National Hospital in D.C. is on display now through the end of 2021.

First of all, we wish you all good health during this time of extreme challenges. In the summer of 2020, we closed our central office in Reston, Virginia, to follow safety measures due to the pandemic. We enjoyed our transition to the Nature's Best Base Camp so much we decided to stay, and now operate fully from our home in McLean, Virginia, along with our staff and contractors who are working with us remotely.

It is an exciting time and all of us at Nature's Best Photography are thrilled to finally get the print publication into your hands. We want to deliver the best quality and are working with new supporters, new partners, and new solutions to bring the very best of nature to your doorstep.

We have never wavered from our early commitment to maintaining the highest standards in printing and presentation. In this modern world of evolving technology, we feel it is more important than ever before to enjoy the simplicity of a single moment in the wild or a compelling story revealed through the printed page and narratives.

—My very best, Steve Freligh, President and CEO, Nature's Best Photography
