Kodua Galieti - International Photojournalist 

For more than a decade Kodua has masterfully captured the complexities and wonders of the human experience as a photojournalist. Kodua is drawn to themes of personal story, culture, and traditions, family, faith, animals, and bees. She has not only raised chimps but her passion for bees has led her to become a beekeeper and Kodua devotes her talent and resources toward the preservation of these incredibly important pollinators.

Kodua's photography adorns the walls of the LA County Fair Bee Booth, was featured on the cover of American Bee Journal and WASP magazine, and can be enjoyed at major bee conventions around the country.

Koda Galieti is a member of the Los Angeles County Bee Association (LACBA) and the Beekeepers Association of Southern California (BASC).

Thank you, Kodua, for all the work you do for bees. And, thank you for providing the LACBA website with awesome photography of the beauty and grace of the honeybee.
