Guest Presenters for September:

Welcome back to “Club” and the many new photography opportunities we have planned in the coming year,

Tuesday, Sept. 3

“Our first presenter of the year is Anthony Bucci. He’s a wildlife photographer that grew up in Vancouver, BC. His passion for wildlife photography started about six years ago. His idea of wildlife photography is packing his gear into forests where no other people have been before.

His focus started strictly on Birds of Prey and now, more so on Owls.

He has donated numerous prints and other products to various wildlife societies across Canada. He has supported silent auctions and other fund raisers to generate funds for wildlife conservation and animals’ well-being.

“Wildlife Photography, to Anthony, is more than just taking pictures. Thinking about conservation and the well being for all wildlife is always on my mind.”

For a look at Anthony’s work, check out his website.  Anthony Bucci Photography

Tuesday, September 17th

John Whitelaw is our presenter for the evening. He was recommended by one of our members.

John’s subjects in photography have included walls, patterns, constructions, street photography, and birds. Latterly he has focused on a cohort of Neotropical birds that are not so much rare as they are difficult to see because of their dense habitat and furtive behavior. An amateur photographer, he has attended workshops by the renowned American landscape photographer Charles Cramer, by invitation to an advanced workshop by the National Geographic wildlife photographer Frans Lanting, and a one-on-one session with the American master printmaker R. Mac Holbert of Nash Editions.

A Program offering Something New and Different : Tuesday, October 1, 2019

We welcome Sarah Bowman.
Sarah is a fashion, fine art, and creative photographer, specializing in
people and portraits with a style consisting of surreal, ethereal and
whimsical imagery. Based on Vancouver Island, she uses a lot of her
surrounding and most often natural light to create her unique
portraits.
“I first approached photography as an outlet to encourage others to
recognize and appreciate their own beauty. Years passed, as I
became more inspired by ethereal and fantastical concepts, and I
became interested in more creative interpretations. The soft and
whimsical poise of a fairy; darkness, dejection, feelings of loss and sorrow; I adore finding
the allure anywhere on the spectrum. This passion has developed into a desire to offer a
glimpse into the intangible, preternatural domain. I draw much of my inspiration from
folklore, mythology, or strong feelings. On occasion, a distinct face, or person, provokes an
idea. Artistic films or video games may also arouse an image.”
