Our guest speaker for the evening will be renowned Tasmanian landscape photographer and passionate environmentalist, Hillary Younger.

Hillary will be sharing with us her passion for the natural world, her inspirations and her vessel for bringing that world to us, her landscape photography.

An excerpt from Hillary’s bio;
There is, at the bottom of it all, a deep reverence for land and life. The wild identity of the land speaks to those who venture into its embrace. To know it in all its seasons, its moods and it’s animals, to communicate a sense of it’s wild spirit and mystery – this motivates my photography.

In the magic hours around dawn and dusk, the play of light and colour over water, rock and landscape reveals beauty often hidden , transforms the mundane into the sacred, creating experiences and images vibrant with the hues and subtleties of the mystery unfolding.

Landscape photography is an expression of the unique relationship of the photographer with the land. My photography is an attempt to communicate intimate moments in that relationship, which stir the emotions and touch the spirit.

Natalie’s Ethos; To me, my camera gear is a tool for good. I’m proud to work with clients who share similar values to me. Just like with consumerism – you vote with your dollars, I vote with my time, and I choose to spend my time with people who have a strong ethos to work environmentally and socially responsibly.
I choose to work with tourism operators who tread lightly on the earth, designers who put sustainability first, paddock-to-plate producers, makers who work slowly with hand-tools and manual techniques, foodies who support local growers and businesses who think globally and act locally.

Entries for the April club competitions are due this month. The theme is OPEN. The judge for this competition will be Robert Groom, President AIPP Tasmania.
