Eye Spy by Mark Seabury

Nature Conservancy Australia contacted me in June to see  if I’d be interested in being a judge for this year’s Nature Photo Competition. Of course I would! I’ve admired the work of the Nature Conservancy in the US for years. They also spread their activities around the globe and have successfully protected over 48 million hectares of land and thousands of … Read More

Esther BeatonAnnouncements, New South WalesLeave a Comment

Booderee National Park? Who’s heard of that? Well, I knew it as Jervis Bay National Park when I was the photographer there years ago.

Kodak Fosters Nature Photography

Esther BeatonOn the Stage1 Comment

Well, I’ve had a big adventure! I ‘just’ finished my seminar series with Kodak, “Great Recipes for Wildlife Photography”.

Latest Outback Magazine

Esther BeatonBehind the Scenes, In The Media8 Comments

Have you seen the latest issue of Outback magazine? It’s published by the outfitter RM Williams. They manufacture such high quality supplies and clothing for stockmen that the clothes have now made it into mainstream fashion. The magazine is a lovely evocation of the life of country people in Australia. I guess it’s a bit like England’s “Country Life” toned … Read More
