Rob Brown – Wilderness Values in the Mountains

Watch Rob Brown’s talk below:

Rob Brown is a landscape photographer and writer based in Wanaka. Rob has been photographing New Zealand’s wild places from Northland to Stewart Island for over 20 years. Over the years he’s been to most of New Zealand’s wilderness areas as well as nearly all of the more visited National Parks and Conservation Areas. A passionate advocate for wilderness values, he was a member of the West Coast Conservation Board between 1998 and 2007 when the Paparoa and Adams Wilderness Areas were gazetted. He’s also had a long‐term commitment to the Federated Mountain Clubs of New Zealand doing two stints on the executive between 1997 and 2001 and between 2010 and 2015. In between those times he also did two years editing the FMC Bulletin. In a younger life he climbed throughout the Southern Alps, but these days prefers tramping through mountain country and looking at the higher peaks.
