David Gallan, Australia
In his youth David learnt to use a camera from his uncle, who worked as a newspaper photographer and editor, and would join the press team on assignments during holidays. Now retired from teaching in schools and university, David uses his images for environmental campaigning and education to outline how the loss of forests impacts water catchments, biodiversity, carbon storage and sustainable jobs.
In 2016 David made Understorey, a documentary film on the south east forests of Australia and the forty year campaign to save them from industrial scale logging.
His work has also been supplied to The Australian Museum and published by the Natural History Museum, London.
David was a finalist in Wildlife Photographer of the Year (2018) and a finalist in Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year (2019).
