Friends of MGA Supper talk with Andrew Campbell
20 March 2019
Andrew Campbell is a Grand Master of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography. Andrew's obsession began in 2012 when a friend donated him an old Newtonian telescope. Andrew was immediately intrigued by the possibility of attaching a camera and photographing the heavens. This soon led to Andrew purchasing several serious telescopes and an equatorial mount with a cooled mono astronomical camera with LRGB & NB filters. He cautiously tells his wife that his hobby is cheaper than having a boat!
In 2015 Andrew was thrilled to win the Deep Sky Section of the Prestigious CWAS "David Malin Awards", Australia's premier astrophotography competition, judged by the legendary world renowned Astrophotographer David Malin himself. Andrew was also named the 2015 & 2016 AIPP Australian Science, Wildlife and Wild Places Photographer of the Year, and the AIPP Victorian Science, Wildlife and Wild Places Photographer of the Year 2015, 2016 & 2017. Recognised by his peers as a discerning judge of photography, Andrew has judged at the state and national awards for the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) for the last 20 years consecutively.
