Pip Beckerling has dedicated years to observing the birds and animals of the Walpole environments. The exhibition, 'fledging', captures life through the lens of one of Western Australia's most talented nature photographers.

"My hope is that through these photos others may be able to feel some of the same wonder and joy in the beauty of these wild birds that inspires me!

To try to define the power of that moment is not easy. I think it’s about the intense challenge of the fleeting seconds I’m granted with the bird before it leaves . . . I feel a powerful sense of privilege to be in its presence, as well as a sense of barely controlled panic that my time with the bird is so limited, the need to get it right – exposure, focus, background, crop – sometimes in rain, often in wind, from a rocking kayak.

My photographic interest began in my twenties when my father helped me set up my first darkroom, and since then I've always taken pictures, but it was a sideline to my main life as parent, academic, teacher, and then psychologist in schools..”

Pips’ interest in capturing the magic of birds, especially raptors, began in 2010 and since retirement in 2018 she has been able to indulge that fascination in the wild, sparsely populated paradise of Walpole and surrounds.
