Aaron Greenville, Photographer of the Year 2014
Aaron Greenville has been fascinated with wildlife and the environment all his life. He now is a desert ecologist, which takes him to some of the most remote regions of Australia. Aaron is interested in wildlife and landscape photography. More recently, he has taken up astro-photography and spends many nights capturing images to build a final photograph of nebulae or planets. Some of his work has featured in magazines, brochures and books. Aaron hopes to inspire people to conserve our world by capturing the wonder of the natural universe in his photography.
The ESA Ecology in Action Photographic Competition is an annual event attracting amazing images celebrating the diversity of landscapes and ecosystems within Australia and New Zealand. In 2014, a new award was added for Best Portfolio and attracted a cash prize as well as the opportunity for an online photographic exhibition of the winner’s work. The inaugural prize was shared by Dr Aaron Greenville from the University of Sydney and Richard Wylie, based at Monash University, Victoria. Aaron now presents the first of these online exhibitions featuring the images which won him best portfolio in the 2014 competition, as well as some additional images showcasing the full scope of his photographic interests and talent.
