Art in Nature (Limited Edition)

Each year, photographers from around the world are invited to enter the Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year competition. (ANZANG refers to the Australia–New Zealand–Antarctica–New Guinea bioregion.)

Last year, 2013, David Rennie won it. His achievement was made all the more remarkable by the fact that David Rennie’s love affair with photography only began in 2007 at the age of 47.

In this magnificent book, David has included just a taste of the strikingly memorable images that now comprise his vast collection. Most are taken at the Mandurah Wetlands, south of Perth. Encompassing over 26,000 hectares, these wetlands are home to over 140 species of bird, with many migrating every year from as far away as Russia. The result is a book that will captivate not just bird lovers but all who appreciate the art we find in nature.

SPECIFICATIONS: Leatherbound Limited Edition | 260 mm x 260 mm | 144 Pages | full colour photographs |

David Rennie is a late-blooming, self-taught photographer. He jokes that when he started out he thought ISO was a measurement for radioactive materials, photoshop a place where you bought camera gear, and shutter speed an indication of how fast your venetian blinds closed! Today, just six years after his love affair with photography began, he is a highly acclaimed, award-winning nature photographer, with a career that culminated in 2013 with him being crowned Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year. David credits his bipolar disorder with helping him refine his photographic skills. During his manic phases, sleep would evade him for days — and it was during those times that he would spend days at a time watching his subjects and learning their ways, developing new techniques so that he could capture his breathtaking images. He now uses his photography to assist him in his work as a passionate advocate for conserving our wilderness areas, especially our valuable wetlands that are increasingly under threat (including the Ramsar-listed Mandurah Wetlands near his home in Western Australia). As David says, ‘It would be gut-wrenching if our children’s children could only see what we can now through books like this and not out in nature.’

Yours Magazine – February 2015

Surprisingly, the first step when it comes to mastering nature photography doesn’t involve a camera.“Leave the equipment behind, go for a walk to your local park and have a wander,” David says. “Come back with your shoes covered in mud and you’ll start to understand your environment.” From there you can get an idea of the type of images you’d like to capture.

Wild Magazine – February 2015

“This title has as much to give to the appreciators of fine photography as it does aspiring wildlife photographers themselves, as Rennie can’t help but provide the occasional hints, tips, and, perhaps mostly, inspiration along the way.”
