Kids to Parks Day Photo Tips

National Park Trust’s Artist Ambassador, Frank Lee Ruggles, presents helpful tips for capturing the excitement of Kids to Parks Day in a brief instructional video. Frank Lee Ruggles is a former US Army Paratrooper and Military Police Officer turned critically acclaimed photographer. From 2007-2011 he held the esteemed role being the official photographer for the National Park Service, a position held only by a handful of people, most notably Ansel Adams.

Frank Lee Ruggles became the first Artist Ambassador for National Park Trust (NPT) in 2014. Through photography, Frank helps NPT increase the awareness and appreciation of our treasured landscapes and mentor our students who seek to capture their own park experiences. According to Frank, “conservation and art can go hand in hand. It’s a perfect match and a great way for us to celebrate our national parks and nature.”
