REMINDER --- Members Group Talk -- A Nature Photographer's Year -- By Robert Canis -- Wed. 13th Jan. 2016

This talk should be a real feast of wildlife images from one of the UK's leading wildlife photographers and winner of numerous wild life photography awards. Robert Canis is a professional nature photographer living in Kent, England. Born in 1970, from an early age he has always had a fascination with the natural world and from the moment he first picked up a camera, at the age of 10, he has been hooked!

Upon leaving school he attended Paddington College, in London, where he gained a BTECH National Diploma in Photography and for several years thereafter worked as an assistant photographer and photographic technician. At the age of 19 he gained his ARPS (Associate of the Royal Photographic Society) in the nature category where he was one of the youngest ever to do so. Throughout this time he would spend every free moment with his camera, outdoors, but feeling he needed to devote more time to his nature photography, at the age of 22 he decided to take the plunge and turn freelance.

Robert considers himself to be very much a stay-at-home nature photographer repeatedly visiting the same locations and spending extended periods photographing his subjects since he feels that only by doing so can you really get under the skin of a place or species and reveal it in all its forms.
