Pine Trees in Wolcheon, South Korea.

Some landscape photographers now keep their locations secret.
Many, like Kenna, also donate prints and help raise funds for conservation projects, disaster relief and other charities.
Landscape photos not only capture the beauty of the natural world, but can also help protect it.
Kenna cites one example where his photo of a group of pine trees in Wolcheon, South Korea was used, without his knowledge, by environmental groups to successfully campaign for an industrial development to be built in a different location.
“The trees remain where they are, protected and now quite famous.”
