    David Boag: "The world of a Wildlife Photographer"

    7:30 pmBy Zoom

    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.
