1440 seminar: Weather photography

Past Event

Thursday, 12 January 2017 - 6pm to 7pm

There are 1440 minutes in a day. In these minutes photographers capture a moment. Join Sydney Morning Herald photographers and editors in December and January for a series of seminars on their experiences covering politics, overseas assignments and major weather events.

Sydney Morning Herald photographers Nick Moir and Wolter Peeters are renowned for capturing spectacular weather, from bushfires to storms. They will be sharing insights into photographing natural phenomena.

This event has been organised to be presented with an Auslan Interpreter.


Joining the Sydney Morning Herald in 1993 and cutting his teeth on breaking news such as the Ivan Milat Trial and the Thredbo landslide, Nick Moir began focusing on fires and storms in 1998. Winning a World Press photo award for bushfire coverage in 2003, the 2009 ANZANG (landscape and wildlife photographer of the year award), the Environmental Photographer of the Year, a two time finalist in the Moran Portrait Prize and 2002 Walkley Press Photographer of the Year award.

Wolter Peeters has been working for Fairfax Media as a photographer since 1999 and transferred to the Sydney Morning Herald in 2010. Wolter covers every aspect of the paper, from news to features, but he finds photographing breaking events and documenting severe weather particularly rewarding. He has been a finalist for the HeadOn portrait prize and won a Walkley award in 2013 for a sports photograph covering the International Rowing Regatta in Penrith.
