Micheli Oliver is a photographer, filmmaker and human rights activist. Her hope is to facilitate connection with the world we all come from and to help folx fall in love with the land we must protect. She centers BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ voices in all that they do and works to create intentional safe space for honest and joyful storytelling. She looks for loud voices that refuse to be silenced, both human and more-than-humans, to paint a story with their light box. When Oliver picks up her camera she wields it with compassion, consent and reciprocity understanding the importance of autonomy in personal story. Everything Oliver does is to bring humans back to a relationship with the land and to uplift voices so often unheard.

Oliver has worked as the still photographer on "Spirit of the Peaks" by WonderCamp and "Who Is a Runner" by Camp4Collective. Their photo and writing work is published in Backcountry Magazine, Powder Magazine, Freeskier Magazine, Sisu Magazine and has been featured with Fujifilm, Patagonia, Hydroflask, Solomon, Backcountry, REI and more.
