October 1st Our guest speaker and presenter is Mike Dimock.
“Back in the early days the medium format film camera I used limited me to working with landscapes. Once I was unencumbered and found the flexibility of more modern equipment I found that I really was more interested in photographing wildlife than landscapes. While I love working great sunsets or waterfalls, it is lying in the mud trying to work with a small shorebird or sitting in a meadow with a Savannah Sparrow that really gets me going.”
Mike offered to focus his presentation on shorebirds.
