Connect with nature and your own creativity this Art in Nature Day at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan. In collaboration with Campbelltown Art Centre and Macarthur Council, the Garden is hosting an afternoon of photography and painting courses with talented local artists on 22 September 2018.
Award-winning local nature photographer Glenn Smith visits the Garden almost every week and is more than happy to share his tips and tricks with those who attend his course.
For example, he’ll most likely begin at a favourite stand of gums near to the PlantBank. “The gum trees there are just full of hollows so there are always birds in and around, either looking out or defending their hollows,” Glenn says.
“There are galahs, lorikeets, red-rumped grass parrots, and pardalotes – and because they usually stay in the one place near their hollows it makes for easier shots to start with.”
