Mon 15 May 2017, 19:45 – 22:15 BST
WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE LOOSE
Windsor Photographic Society is pleased to welcome Mark Carwardine to the Firestation Arts Centre to speak about his photography.
Mark Carwardine is a zoologist, an award-winning writer and best-selling author, an active and outspoken conservationist, a TV and radio presenter... and a wildlife photographer. He presented the weekly half-hour programme 'Nature' on Radio 4 for many years and BBC's 'Museum of Life', as well as the acclaimed BBC-TV series 'Last Chance to See', with Stephen Fry, where the unlikely duo went in search of endangered animals around the world.
He has written around 50 books, including the best-selling field guide of all time, and also chaired the judging panel of the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition for seven years, until 2011. This evening he will chat about his passion for wildlife photography and his efforts - some successful and some not - to photograph everything from Amazon river dolphins and blue whales to Sumatran rhinos and hummingbirds.
