Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography.

“Nature photography” overlaps the fields of — and is sometimes considered an overarching category including — “wildlife photography,” “landscape photography,” and “garden photography”.
