ONE of Australia’s leading nature, wildlife and landscape photographers will be in Beaudesert on Saturday to share his tips with the region’s growing photography community.

Mr Parish, a naturalist and photographer with more than five decades of experience, has featured in over 2500 books throughout his career which has spanned Australian and the world.

He is known mostly for his landscape and nature photography of Australia’s national parks and some of the country’s finest natural landmarks.

On Saturday, Mr Parish will be in Beaudesert to guide photographers through topics including inspiring creativity, seeing and capturing photographs, digital processing and photo sharing.

The seminar, organised and hosted by Beaudesert camera club Exposure Unlimited, is being held at the Beaudesert RSL. 

Exposure Unlimited president Ian Hinrichsen said it was a coup to have an internationally recognised photographer of Mr Parish’s calibre in town.

“It is fantastic to have Steve Parish share his passion and insight into photography in Beaudesert,” he said.

“Usually we have to travel to a capital city or larger venue to see someone of this calibre.”

Mr Hinrichsen said he hoped the visit by Mr Parish would encourage people to join Exposure Unlimited and help refine their photography skills in a supporting environment.

He said the club meets once a month and features either a guest speaker or a photo critique session where club members have the chance to enter their photos for judging by accredited judges.

Mr Hinrichsen said the club was suitable for all levels of photography experience and any type of camera. 

“We have members who are beginners and members who are professional photographers as well,” he said.

“There are different categories for judging the images and all levels are catered for. It is all about learning and sharing.”

He said new members are always welcome at the club and anyone with any interest in photography is encouraged to join up and learn more about it.
