Jurien Sport and Recreation Centre, Jurien Bay

10:00am - 12:00pm
Art of Wildlife Photography by Diana Andersen

 Meet at the Jurien Sports & Rec at 10:00am for a presentation by Diana Andersen.

Diana is an award-winning professional photographer passionate about animals and animal photography. Her background is in design, both as a practicing and exhibiting designer, and a teacher.

Wildlife photography is one genre that has seen a boom in popularity with advances in digital camera technology. Focus tracking, low light capabilities, and mirrorless have made capturing wildlife images much easier than in the past.

Learning to see the potential for a shot that tells a story and captures the viewer’s attention is the key to creating visually striking images. Using your camera creatively elevates your photographs from simple snapshots, memories, or record shots to art worthy of a place in print on a wall.

Visual Communication for Photographers by Diana Andersen
