In the Media
Jenaya, Josiah and the Launstein family have been privileged to be featured in several media pieces about their photography. We are genuinely grateful for this opportunity and humbled that so many reporters and writers have considered our family of nature photographers “newsworthy.”
We have also had enough requests for copies of the various features that we thought it might be helpful to have them all listed in one place for those interested in learning a little more about us and the incredible achievements Jenaya and Josiah have been recognized for. It’s nice to be able to share some of our story with you!
Our apologies that we have not obtained direct links to a few of the items here, but we will update this list as those become available.
