Event Details

National Geographic Magazine is famed for its amazing photography and engaging science stories from lands near and far. So, it’s no surprise that to be a photographer for National Geographic you need technical brilliance as well as a large dash of daring. The 2012 Australian Museum Eureka Prize winner and National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards is just that man! Join us as we hear about Jason’s recent Nat Geo assignments, award-winning photography and what it takes to make it into the pages of this hallowed magazine.

About the Speaker:
Jason Edwards began his career as a wildlife and natural history photographer during an 11-year career working as a carnivore and primate husbandry specialist for the Zoological Board of Victoria. Over this extensive career his work has appeared in hundreds of publications, including National Geographic magazine, Australian Geographic, Sports Illustrated, BBC Wildlife magazine, the New Yorker, and Conde Nast Traveler.

Jason is highly regarded for his wildlife and remote landscape photography and also for his images of indigenous peoples. His passion in this arena has seen Jason document displaced Pygmy in the Congo; the lives of the men at the world's largest shipbreaking yards in Alang, India; and the environmental impact by communities on the Amazon rain forest. In many cases multiple assignments over several years are required to complete a story. In 2003 National Geographic presented Jason's Alang material in Perpignan, France, at the prestigious Visa Pour L'Image photojournalism festival.

In 2004 Jason was awarded the inaugural Pursuit of Excellence Award by the Australian Geographic Society, "For his extreme efforts and absolute commitment to obtaining rare and amazing photographs.” The award was created in Jason's honor. In 2012 Jason was awarded an Australian Museum Eureka Prize for his amazing photojournalism.

Date: Wednesday 25 September
Time: Wildlife photographer of the Year exhibition will be open from 6.00pm, the lecture will begin promptly at 7pm.
