RIP Gunther Schmida

Recommended Posts

It is with great sorrow to announce that Gunther Schmida has passed away. An ANGFA life member and

world renowned wildlife photographer, his superb images of native fish certainly changed the direction of

many an aquarist. His pictures and interests weren't limited to native fish but also to Australian reptiles and

amphibians plus anything creepy crawly.


Gunther was  one of Australia's formost authors and photograghers of native fish and wildlife plus a genuine and

great person who will be sadly missed.

He always had time for a cuppa and a chat on a wide range of topics from animals, to trips, to his photographic

techniques and how he set things up in the simple studio under his house.

RIP Gunther so much information not published it was too soon my friend.
