Central Coast - Meeting & talk: Behind the Lens - Strickland CANCELLED

  • 13 Aug 2022
  • 2:00 PM
Shayne Leslie was to present Behind the Lens - Strickland: An Online Photographic Exhibition.

The in-person meeting has been cancelled due to roof damage at Phillip House. As Shayne's talk is unsuitable for a Zoom meeting, members are instead invited to participate in a trivia quiz by Zoom. Details here.

You may also see Shayne's online exhibition here.

Shayne combines her background as a musician, theatre performer, marketer, writer and small business owner with her photography to create modern and inspired portraits. As a landscape photographer her images are rich and detailed, immersing you into their beauty.

Strickland State Forest is only a seven-minute drive from Shayne’s home in Wyoming. She has taken thousands of pictures of the state forest since 2011. Her online photography exhibition features over 60 photos and is presented in a unique gallery style.

It is easy to see why Strickland State Forest captured Shayne’s imagination. The environment is a living exhibition of exceptionally diverse forest habitats from wildflowers and dry heath woodland, tall eucalypts through to lush rainforest. Shayne will share the story behind the pictures. On the way, you will learn a little about photography.

Shayne likes to go bushwalking and travelling to regional Australia. Shayne and her husband, Nick Chettle, love to fuss about with their Habitat for Wildlife garden and grow organic microgreens, spending long hours toiling away for the reward of a crisp gin and tonic at days' end.
