Acclaimed photographer to speak at Mayoral prayer breakfast
Internationally renowned Australian landscape photographer and publisher Ken Duncan OAM is the guest speaker for the 2023 Toowoomba Mayoral Prayer Breakfast.
The 29th community fundraiser will be held on Tuesday, May 9 at Rumours International in Toowoomba from 6am.
Toowoomba Region Mayor Paul Antonio said Mr Duncan, who describes himself as ‘an average photographer with a great God’, would offer an insight into his successful photographic career and how nature and Australia’s wild landscapes have shaped his life and faith.
Mr Duncan is a pioneer in the field of panoramic landscapes and limited-edition photographic prints, which have captured the rugged beauty of Australia’s often isolated locations and wildlife.
Lauded as one of Australia’s most iconic image makers, Mr Duncan’s travels have allowed him to capture equally stunning images on assignments across Europe, the United States, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
He has completed projects for National Geographic, The New York Times and Rolling Stone magazine along with work for corporate groups and other organisations.
Mr Duncan has worked with World Vision to document the group’s efforts to improve lives in developing countries and has produced two books to aid World Vision’s fundraising.
Mayor Antonio said a charity beneficiary would be announced in the coming weeks.
“The Toowoomba Mayoral Prayer Breakfast has the distinction of being one of the few events of its kind in Australia that is completely supported by its home businesses and organisations with proceeds delivered back to a chosen charity,” he said.
“I thank all business people and volunteers for contributing to the function, which has raised almost $310, 000 for more than thirty charities in this Region.”
Prices are $25 for adult tickets and $15 for school-aged children.
Tickets can be purchased at the Regional Council’s Little Street Customer Service Centre in Toowoomba from 8.30am to 5pm on week days.
Tickets also can be bought by calling 131 872 or online.
All credit cards, except Diners Club and American Express, can be used.
