TALK | David Boag "The World of the Wildlife Photographer"

This entertaining lecture spans 35 years of photography and takes us to 5 continents.    David is most frequently asked questions about his ‘favourites’ such as  

  • What are the pictures you are most pleased with?  
  • What is the best place you have visited?  
  • Which subjects do you most enjoy photographing?  

David says, "These are impossible questions to answer because one's opinion constantly changes.    How can you possibly compare the Queensland tropical rain forest with the desert of Utah; or compare the delicate but vibrant sunbirds with the power and majesty of a bald eagle?    It may be impossible but, in this lecture, I am going to try!    Working my way through my commissions over a span of 30 years, I will bring you right up to date with my latest and most exciting project."

David Boag is a wildlife photographer and the author/photographer of 18 published books, the first of were ‘The Kingfisher’ published in 1982 and ‘The Atlantic Puffin’ published a couple of years later.   His work became the subject of the television programme ‘Out of Town’ and he has since been involved with both television and radio, either in an advisory capacity or as a knowledgeable guest or presenter. 

David lectures regularly throughout the country to a wide variety of natural history, photographic and general interest audiences including for organisations such as the National Trust, the RSPB, British Trust for Ornithology and the Royal Photographic Society.     His work is marketed throughout the world by a variety of top agencies which has led him to working throughout Europe, Australia, Africa and in America. 

David has taught photography to both photographic degree and wildlife illustration students and his tutorial DVDs have been extremely popular and successful.
