Alex Cearns - Tamron Ambassador Event




Join leading Australian animal photographer and Tamron Ambassador Alex Cearns OAM of Houndstooth Studio for an informative and colorful look at how she not only survives but thrives, globally in her niche animal photography market. She will share her inspiring journey as an image maker, which saw her leave behind a 19-year career in audit, compliance, and enforcement roles with the Australian Government, to pursue her love of animal photography.


In addition to presenting seven factors to help you capture remarkable animal portraits, Alex will showcase a selection of her animal portrait images and will divulge the informative and colorful stories behind them. Working with animals can be chaotic and unpredictable. Alex will discuss how she captured that quirky expression, the degree of difficulty or danger involved in getting the shot, and the distractions happening around her at the time.


Alex is a dynamic and inspirational speaker and uses warmth, humor, and uplifting visual storytelling to share her knowledge and experience. This presentation is a must-do for those who want to get the best from their wildlife photography and it will leave you with a sense of wanderlust to photograph animals through new eyes.
