BirdLife Photography Congress gets attention!
The 2017 congress, currently known as Digital Photography in the Bush was our biggest achievement this year, held at Deakin University, Geelong, Victoria on the 11th and 12th March, with two days of birding activities, which included the Western Treatment Plant, on either side of the main event.
There were more than 140 registrations, which included both members and non-members. The congress was modelled on that of a scientific conference, with six morning presentations by invited photographers, followed by 42 workshops in the afternoon sessions, across the two days.
The three alternative workshop sessions in each time slot enabled the organisers to specifically cater for beginners, intermediate and advanced photographers. Camera manufacturers and other photographic industry representatives provided equipment displays and specialist workshops.
Conference participants were immersed in a photographic extravaganza, a networking and learning experience that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. If you are a BirdLife Photography member, you can’t afford to miss the 2019
