Duade has a passion, some say addiction, for bird photography and loves nothing more than being out with his camera and enjoying nature. He enjoys all types of bird photography but has a special interest in shorebirds and waterbirds. He gets a lot of joy and satisfaction when his photos are used in campaigns to help protect Australia’s wonderful birds.
Duade is active on his YouTube channel where he shares his tips and tricks for taking photos and is delighted that others learn from the content.
Duade is also the co-author of the new book Australian Birds in Pictures which celebrates the many beautiful photographs taken by himself and the late Matthew Jones.
He is very much looking forward to chatting and engaging with everyone at the conference and is happy to answer any questions people may have.
