Friday, 3 May 2019 - 12:00pm

The Photographic group and Friends of the ANBG will honour the memory of David Cox, a Photographic Group member and Friends supporter who passed away last year, with a special lunchtime talk.

The guest presenter will be Brent Wilson, a horticultural photographer from Sydney. Brent has been a botanic photographer for over 30 years, shooting still images for magazines and television programs in Australia as well as overseas.

Television programs include ‘Better Homes and Gardens’, ‘Backyard Blitz’, ‘Renovation Rescue’ and ‘Bourke’s Backyard”. His work has appeared in various publications; ‘Botanica’ and ‘Gardening Australia Magazine’ are but two examples.

His photographs are submitted to GAP Photolibrary (the largest plant and garden photolibrary in the world) based in the United Kingdom, and he is currently providing photographs for ‘Better Homes and Gardens’ magazine and television program. He regularly teaches photographic workshops covering different aspects of photography including Macro Photography.

All friends of the ANBG are invited to attend. The lecture will take place in the ANBG Theatrette.


At the end of May, Canberra’s own 'Kayakcameraman' Paul Jurak will be the guest speaker at the Photographic Group's regular meeting.
