Keen birders and photographers won't want to miss the forthcoming Birdlife Photography Conference in Fremantle, writes MOGENS JOHANSEN.

Birders who want to spread their wings and improve their photographic skills will have several opportunities at the upcoming Birdlife Photography Conference at the Rydges Hotel in Fremantle on September 21 and 22.

Professional nature and bird photographer Glenn Bartley from British Columbia, in Canada, is among the international and Australian photographers who will share tips and experiences during the conference.

Subjects range from camera set-ups to post-production techniques and sessions on more specific subjects such as Mastering the Light with Mandurah-based photographer Shelley Pearson and Arid Area Bird Photography with Perth photographer Gary Meredith.

There is range of free pre and post-conference excursions for registered attendees. Details and registration here.

If you need a bit of inspiration before the conference, you might want to check out the Team Digital 2019 West Australian Bird Photography Exhibition. The winners will be announced in mid July and the exhibition will be at the Bunker Gallery from August 23 to September 20.
