PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION

Larry Winslett is an award winning nature photographer who has chronicled the natural world in many parts of the United States and Canada. He has specialized in wildflowers, animals, rivers, and streams.

With 3,200 acres of natural beauty just outside Atlanta, Stone Mountain Park offers numerous outdoor photography opportunities. Larry will present the many photo opportunities at the park and his work there as a photographer over the last 20 years. The park offers endless possibilities for a wide range of subjects from macro to landscape. Larry has produced two books about the park and been associated with several others.

As the current Conservation Chairman for the Georgia Sierra Club, Larry will also discuss how photography can be used as a activist tool for protecting places you care about - something that will be extremely relevant over the next four years! Conservation issues were a driving force to prompt Larry to become involved with photography and continues to be what drives a lot of his photography today.
