FOH Nature Photo Club Meeting September 19

At the   September 19 meeting, the technical program  Bird Photography was presented by Mike Cameron. Mike began seriously photographing wildlife and landscapes about twelve years ago.  Over that time he has specialized in documenting bird life, especially in the North Texas region.  He has also worked with local organizations promoting wildlife and nature education through photography, including Prairie and Timbers Audubon and the Urban Naturalist Program for the Parks and Recreation Dept. of Richardson, TX.

There were two sharing themes for the September meeting -- one was, you guessed it, "Water"; the other was "Birds".  

Meetings are open to anyone interested in nature photography; visitors may attend free of charge to see if the club is for them; nominal dues for members, who are encouraged to bring friends.
