From Paxton to Patagonia
Fri 17 February 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Laurie Campbell is one of Scotland's leading natural history and landscape photographers. His presentation will be in two parts with the first including many of his best ‘landmark’ images from over thirty years in the business working as Scotland’s first full-time professional nature photographer.
Starting with everyday subjects close to home, a wide variety of other images from some of the remotest parts of Scotland will also be featured, including work from various commissions and book projects. Laurie will also be presenting his latest work, on otters on the Tweed river system and from on an ongoing commission on the North Harris Estate where he is currently working to photograph the wildlife, landscape and a little of the culture of this wild and beautiful part of Scotland. Included in this section, he will be describing his experiences of photographing golden eagles in winter and then from a tiny camouflaged hide on a cliff ledge in early summer where he captured some of the most intimate photographs ever taken of golden eagles at the nest in the UK.
The second part of the presentation will include rarely seen images from a two month commission from National Geographic Television to provide stills to support a major film being shot by a friend about pumas in Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia.
