About the Guest Speaker:

Nature photographer Jack Rogers is the guest speaker for the Mead Botanical Garden Life Explorer’s Series on March 16. Rogers is a prize-winning, widely- published nature photographer who has been capturing birds and wildlife in their natural habitats through the lens of a camera for decades. He leads workshops and presents a variety of seminars here in Florida each year and teaches nature photography at Valencia College. He is also a lifetime supporter of Florida’s conservation organizations and his images may be seen on their websites, pamphlets and signposts across the state.

Rogers will showcase his magnificent photos and detail how he started his career in photography and the ways he has been able to use his talent to promote conservation efforts. He will show photos taken from habitats around the area and highlight some of the best spots to capture birds on film, including some special shots from Mead Botanical Garden. He will offer some basic hands-on tips for capturing nature in the wild that we may all be able to put to use…even with an iPhone!
