RENOWNED wildlife photographer Steve Parish, now 70, is hosting three events in Canberra this weekend aimed at to capturing the interest of budding photographers, nature lovers and senior.
Steve Parish, the man who went from Navy diver to the founder and creative force behind a multi-million nature and Australiana publishing company, has spent the past 50 years capturing Australia’s greatest natural landscapes and now he wants to inspire others to photograph with a goal in mind – a journalistic piece, photo book, exhibition or multimedia presentation.
People interested in enhancing their photography skills, raising their level of creativity, developing their seeing and design skills along with exploring and expanding computing skills will be offered practical plant and animal photography in natural settings with animal species that are both unique and visually spectacular
In “Nature in Focus, Canberra,” he says, “whether your skills are basic or advanced you will come away excited by the myriad of opportunities for self-expression within nature photography and have a commitment to develop the journey towards the ‘creative you’.”
