Bird is the Word Ep06
A laid-back chat about birds, experiences while birding, bird-related topics and much more from around the world. Bird is the Word intends to share a global perspective of the birding experience.
In this episode, we chat with award-winning nature photographer Georgina Steytler. Georgina is a nature photographer with a passion for birds, conservation and ethics. Her interest in photography became a passion over ten years ago when she began volunteer work with BirdLife WA. Since then, she has been working to produce images for use for free by conservation organisations across Australia, as well as teaching the art and ethics of bird photography through workshops, talks and articles. She has won numerous awards, including winning the 2020 Bird Photographer of the Year (Portfolio Prize), Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2018 (Invertebrates: Behaviour ).
Georgina will be talking about her unique approach to photography, ethics in the field, being a certified wildlife rehabber in Australia (furry guest appearances during the episode are very likely), and most importantly her upcoming book entitled “For the Love of Birds” published by Australian Geographic; with author proceeds going to conservation.
