“The World of a Wildlife Photographer”
DAVID BOAG – WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER, AUTHOR AND LECTURER
David is a wildlife photographer and the author/photographer of 18 published books. His first book ‘The Kingfisher’ was published in 1982 and contained a wealth of unique photographs illustrating the life of this remarkable bird.
His next book was about another spectacular bird, and ‘The Atlantic Puffin’ and was published a couple of years later.
For several consecutive years his work became the subject of the television programme ‘Out of Town’ and he has since been involved with both television and radio, either in an advisory capacity or as a knowledgeable guest or presenter.
“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.”
