Virtual Meeting: Guest Speaker – Nick Rains “Heart of Australia”

November 26, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Heart of Australia

“In small towns across Australia you will find any number of whacky and wonderful events that regularly bring communities together throughout the year. From the dusty glory of the Deniliquin Ute Muster to Elvis impersonators lining the streets for the Parkes  Elvis Festival, Heart of Australia is a many and varied collection of images that celebrates our community, all within in the covers of one beautifully presented book.”

“Nick Rains is a professional photographer specialising in travel and documentary work. During a career spanning over 35 years his photographs have been featured in publications such as Australian Geographic, Australian Photography Magazine, GEO, Sports Illustrated, Outback Magazine, Reader’s Digest and more. He has photographed a vast range of subjects, including sport, news, celebrities, commercial, industry, travel, wildlife, fashion and portraits. Nick is the author of 15 books, his most recent seven titles have been published by Hardie Grant.

He was named Australian Geographic magazine’s Photographer of the Year in 2001 and in 2014 was named Travel Photographer of the Year at the AIPP’s Australian Professional Photography Awards for his portfolio of Gold award prints.

Nick is a Master Photographer of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, the Leica Akademie Principal Instructor and for the past decade has been helping ‘committed enthusiasts’ take the photos they have been dreaming of on workshops held in far-flung locations around the world.”
