Please join us at the MUN Botanical Garden for an afternoon photography workshop with visiting botanist Sue Meades. We will spend part of the time photographing our plant subjects outside, weather permitting, followed by workshop time indoors.


Susan Meades is a botanist, and along with her husband William, lived in Newfoundland for a number of years, while conducting research and providing consulting services in the field of botany. As a consultant, she described the vegetation of peatlands across Newfoundland and conducted various rare plant surveys in Labrador.  Sue was a founding member and past president of the Wildflower Society of Newfoundland and Labrador, wrote the Natural Regions of Newfoundland and Labrador (1990) and was the primary author of Annotated Checklist of the Vascular Plants of Newfoundland and Labrador (SJ Meades et al. 2000,2015) .  She has worked as an adjunct professor at Algoma University for 11 years, where she developed the Northern Ontario Plant Database website (SJ Meades at al. 2004) and continued doing fieldwork in Newfoundland and Labrador. She and William are the authors of the website The Flora of Newfoundland and Labrador, ( a resource for showcasing the beauty of the province’s flora. Sue did most of the photography for this website. We are delighted that she is back in Newfoundland this summer to share her knowledge in this workshop exclusively for members of BASNL.


Content for the workshop will include:


- What is the best lighting to use when photographing plants/flowers

- How to improve upon less than ideal lighting (in particular outside)

- Ways to deal with clusters of flowers or multi leafed plants.
