Our Harold Diaz leads Photography Contest

Conservation & Education News

Resident Guide Harold Diaz celebrated his success in the recently completed EOG Amateur Bird Photography Competition on December 15, 2009. Harold, a long- time lover/conservator of nature, has within recent years pursued his interest in the photography of native wildlife, especially birds regularly featured in many of the Centre’s publications including this monthly newsletter. His combined interest in nature and photography has been recognised through his accomplishment of winning six out of the twelve positions in the competition.
For his entire life Harold lived within the beautiful rainforest of Aripo Village (much like that which exists at the Centre), and recently developed an interest in and talent for capturing the brilliance of many resident species of wildlife, particularly the bird life in the northern range. Most of his photos display each animal’s true character, often illustrating its behaviour and the multifaceted colours. This is the second annual competition put on by EOG Resources, a multinational oil and natural gas company with offshore natural gas investments in Trinidad and Tobago.
The EOG Amateur Bird Photography Competition emphasises the company’s commitment to the promotion and preservation of Trinidad and Tobago’s flora and fauna, while acknowledging and rewarding the photographic talents of local enthusiasts. All 12 award-winning photographs are images of native birds. Of these six were taken by Harold.
Each of the 12 photos is now featured in the EOG Resources 2010 Calendar. It is a beautiful collection of some of Trinidad and Tobago’s birds with corresponding profiles on each winning photographer. The Board, Management and Staff of the Asa Wright Nature Centre congratulate Harold Diaz on his success and encourage him in his future pursuits in wildlife photography. He has done us proud!
