Gary Cranitch – Nature Photographer


An award-winning nature and environment photographer, Gary’s work has been published in Australian Geographic, Popular Science (USA), New Scientist, and National Geographic online.

He was heavily involved in the CReefs project, a systematic study of coral reef biodiversity that helped identify more than a thousand new species and will be used in future reef management decision-making. The CReefs project produced the beautiful book The Great Barrier Reef Discovery Guide (available for purchase at Queensland Museum), for which Gary was the Principal Photographer.

Gary will discuss the role of his photography in provoking both intellectual and emotional responses and facilitating the collection and dissemination of scientific information.
