Join professional photographer, Regis Martin, as he shares his experiences of photographing specimens and objects in a museum context. Regis will reflect on some of the extraordinary natural science specimen photographs on display in the exhibition Capturing nature: early photography at the Australian Museum 1857-93.

Regis Martin works at the Clinical Photographer at the Royal Darwin Hospital (2015-present) and was formerly the Image Resource Officer at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT; 2007-13), where he photographed natural science and history, art and culture collections.

Regis’ childhood ambition was to be a photographer. He obtained a Diploma of Photography from the Cours Technique De L’ Image, Lyon, France in 1989. Early in his career he undertook photographic assignments in the Middle East, Africa and eastern Europe and later worked as a freelance press photographer in France, USA and Australia. In 2004, he was awarded a Bachelor of Arts from RMIT, Melbourne, where he created a photographic body of work that focused on Goths, aged 30 years or older.
