Piper Mackay – Guest Speaker – June 2017 Meeting

Filed in Meetings by on May 10, 2017 0 Comments

Our guest speaker for June 2017 is Piper Mackay.  Her intrepid journey as an African wildlife and cultural photographer has taken her on adventures spanning the African continent; a land she fell in love with when she first stepped foot on its rich red soil. She instantly made the decision to change her life’s direction and created an exit plan to leave behind a successful career in the fashion industry.

She now resides in Kenya where she is driven to create compelling imagery and stories that make a difference.  Her work breaks expectations by moving away from the beaten path, immersed in the cultures and wild environments she is photographing.

She believes compelling work comes when you invest time, living the stories you are trying to tell. Such powerful images help shape the view of the world and play an important role in disseminating how wildlife and cultures are coping with the rapid changes happening in the developing world.

Piper’s photographs are licensed by Getty Images top collections and also have been printed in national publications such as National Geographic Traveler, Outdoor Photographer, Nature Photographer, Wild Planet Magazine, Ranger Finder, and Selamata.
