Photographic Group: Margie McClelland, 'Wildlife Photography'

You are here

Friday, 28 October 2016 - 10:30am

This meeting will start with the AGM and will be followed by a talk on 'Wildlife Photography' by Margie McClelland.

Margie is a self taught and an enthusiastic photographer. Initially, starting on the land in outback NSW, her skills developed from documenting pastoral subjects and life on large station properties. Later on, trips through Africa supporting her husband, an internationally renowned wildlife artist, gave her a fascination for wildlife photography.  This interest was also pursued in Patagonia, the Brazilian Pantanal and the Amazon.

She has worked for the Riverine Grazier newspaper in Hay for the past twelve years and her camera is continuing to capture a broad range of local events from sport to subjects of general interest. Some of her photographs have appeared in city media and in magazines supporting safari lodge reviews undertaken in Africa by her husband. Margie’s photos have also been shown in numerous exhibitions and she is currently a member of the MAP group of mainly professional photographers based in Melbourne (Many Australian Photographers).

Venue: ANBG Theatrette.
