A few days ago I applied for membership to the group Nature Photographers Tasmania. I was very hopeful because my goals of using my work to promote conservation seemed to align well with theirs. They also work closely, and actively with conservation organisations, and the opportunity to be involved with saving and shooting remote, precious habitat is exciting. Also, some very accomplished photographers are among the membership - some of whom I've looked up to.
And so now I've heard back that my application was accepted, and I'm a member! I'm very happy and anticipate there will be more entries in here in the later part of the year, since as the cold is coming, so we are migrating north for a while.
Here's an unrelated pic of melaluca stumps in swamp waters on the north west Tassie coast.
