The Friends of Hagerman Nature Photo Club meets bimonthly at Hagerman NWR for a technical program and photo sharing. The club is open to anyone interested in nature photograph, regardless of experience or type of equipment. Visitors are welcome; for those who wish to join, dues are just $5 per year, however, membership in the Friends of Hagerman NWR is required.
The Nature Photo Club sponsors photo shoots on the Refuge, and an annual Refuge photo contest. Club members also participate in photography projects on behalf of the Friends and the Refuge.
We atarted off the new year, 2017, with a great turnout for the club on January 21, 2017. Professional photographer Trey Neal spoke on Photographing Owls at HNWR and Staff Biologist Courtney Anderson explained how to take part in the Refuge wildlife photo-documentary project. The sharing theme for the meeting was be "Things Seen in December/January".
For our next meeting, which will be March 18, at 1 pm, the program will be presented by Dr. Michael Keck, biology professor at Grayson College. Mike will present Bird Photography for Beginners - we have seen this program and it has value for anyone wanting to photograph the birds. The sharing theme is Sunrise/Sunset. Photos on this theme taken at HNWR will be featured in the next club album.
