Talk: Canon South Africa Photography Workshop with Richard Flack

I was priveleged to host a photography workshop, sponsored by Canon South Africa, during Birdlife South Africa’s 2023 Flock to the Wilderness event.

I shared on a topic close to my heart; “Building confidence as photographers so we can reach our potential as artists”.

Canon South Africa Photography Workshop with Richard Flack

28 MAY 2023 | 09h00

Protea Room, The Wilderness Hotel

There is only ONE MONTH to go until Flock to the Wilderness, 24 – 28 May 2023!

There are still places available in the Canon South Africa Photography Workshop with world-renowned photographer, Richard Flack.

Richard’s presentation will focus on two main themes

    1. How we can look to build confidence as bird photographers; and
    2. How we can move our photographs from good to great.

These are such exciting topics and Richard will use his 14 years’ experience to build our confidence, encourage us to take risks as well as inspire curiosity in the wonderful world of birds. He will use his own stories and case studies to bring to life some of his biggest breakthroughs and latest learnings.

Crested Guineafowl

“One of the things we battle with as photographers (often regardless of level) is whether our images are good enough. When I started out, I knew absolutely nothing about cameras, composition, post processing or anything else for that matter. I just loved birds!

There was so much to learn, and I bumbled around for many years trying to figure things out. Even when I started to get the hang of things, I was often too scared to post some of my photographs online. It was only thanks to my wife; Eileen’s, encouragement that I eventually did.

14 years into my bird photography journey I am still learning so much and I hope to share with you some of the things that have given me the confidence to grow as an artist and pursue the dreams that I never knew were possible”.
