Taking Great Wildlife Images
 
Douglas Gimesy
 
Doug will discuss how to take great wildlife photographs including the following topics
  1. What is wildlife / nature photography?


  2. Why images are so powerful?
 - This is something he lectures at Melb Uni, photographers normally find the psychology interesting as of course cuts across many genres.

  3. 5 tactical considerations 
  4. 6 strategic considerations
 
Doug is a professional conservation and wildlife photojournalist who focuses on Australian issues. An Associate Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP), his clients include National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, bioGraphic, Australian Geographic, Audubon, as well various mastheads like The Guardian and NewsCorp. Initially trained as a zoologist and microbiologist, he later completed a Masters of Environment and a Masters of Bioethics. Together, these two qualifications helped shape his thinking as what type of issues he should be focusing on and why – conservation and animal welfare issues.
 
His hope is that the images and information he shares, will inspire people to stop, think, and treat the world more kindly.
