Thursday 27th April - The World of the Wildlife Photographer

This Thursday we welcome our final speaker of the season, David Boag, who will be delivering his talk entitled 'The World Of A Wildlife Photographer' and judging by the images on his website I think we are in for a great evening!

This entertaining lecture spans 35 years of photography and takes us to 5 continents.    The questions I am most often asked are about are my  ‘favourites’!    What are the pictures you are most pleased with – what is the best place you have visited – which subjects do you most enjoy photographing?    These are impossible questions to answer because ones opinion constantly changes.    How can you possibly compare the Queensland tropical rain forest with the desert of Utah; or compare the delicate but vibrant sunbirds with the power and majesty of a bald eagle?    It may be impossible but, in this lecture, I am going to try!    Working my way through my commissions over a span of 30 years, I will bring you right up to date with my latest and most exciting project.

"I lecture throughout the country to a large number of audiences, including National Trust Associations, R.S.P.B. Groups, Camera Clubs and Wildlife Trusts, and have been invited to speak at several major conferences.   I am also a regular cruise ship speaker."

This promises to be a very special evening. We are open to members and non-members alike.
