Dave Watts Nature Photography Gallery

Images of nature imbued with exquisite delicacy taken by one of Australia’s leading wildlife photographers

The impulse that turned Dave Watts into an esteemed nature photographer was his time living in the Tasmanian wilderness, helping the Franklin River blockaders by delivering supplies in his zodiac. That time in the wilderness led Dave to become the first photographer to photograph the critically endangered Orange-bellied parrot. The image was highly commended in a BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. His images of wilderness and its inhabitants have appeared in publications around the world, on products, advertising campaigns and on stamps and coins by Australia Post and the Australian Mint. Dave has published eleven books, including guides to Tasmanian birds and plants and his first, on Tasmanian mammals, is into its second edition.
