PROGRAM:

NICHOLAS REMY

SEA DRAGONS OF AUSTRALIA
Sea dragons are some of the most beautiful fish roaming our oceans, but these elegant cousins of seahorses are found only in Australia. Join Australia-based pro-shooter Nicolas Remy for an exciting talk about where and how to photograph these majestic creatures. Australia is a big place, but Nicolas will provide tips on where and when to go in Australia to see weedy sea dragons and leafy sea dragons. In addition to travel tips, he will comment on some of his sea dragon images and provide photographic advice, both in terms of equipment and technique.
