Capturing beautiful photos of South Florida native plants requires being both a brilliant photographer and an expert on local flora, and author, photographer and conservationist Kirsten Hines is just such a person.
Hines will present her inspiring talk “Reflecting Nature” at the Audubon Everglades Photography Club meeting on Monday, Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. at St. Michael Lutheran Church (1925 Birkdale Drive, Wellington).
Equipped with a master’s degree in biology and a background as an environmental educator, Hines draws on her many talents to inspire the re-greening of South Florida’s urban corridor. Her photography illustrates her co-authored books Attracting Birds to South Florida Gardens (2015 Florida Book Awards winner, Home & Garden), Birds of Fairchild (2015 Florida Book Awards winner, Coffee Table Book) and the recently published Biscayne National Park. She is also co-author of the award-winning book Key Biscayne and the Institute for Regional Conservation’s online native plant resource, Natives for Your Neighborhood.
Hines’ photography has appeared in Shutterbug, Expressions, Audubon, nature photography showcases, public art programs, and solo and juried exhibitions locally, nationally and internationally.
The Audubon Everglades Photography Club strives to promote wildlife awareness, habitat conservation and photographic ethics through the enjoyment of nature photography.
The club welcomes all nature photography enthusiasts seeking to enhance their skills through workshops, programs and competitions. Club meetings are held at St. Michael on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.). Guests may attend up to two club meetings prior to becoming club members. Membership in the club is required to participate in competitions or attend field trips and workshops.
