Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday break. It will be good to come back to routine, and I am thrilled that this week we will have our own Catherine Page as our guest speaker! Not only is Catherine one of our active members, she is also heavily involved as a volunteer with our club, and for that we are all grateful.
Catherine has always been found with a camera in hand, but it wasn’t until she retired from her careers as an Occupational Therapist and a Piano Teacher did she have the real opportunity to focus on her photography passion. With her newfound time, Catherine attended the Burwell School of Photography and received her Diploma in Portrait Photography last year, and her Diploma in Nature Photography the year before. She also has the flexibility to travel, which is another one of her interests. She spends both time away with family and on focused photography trips, but in the generous way that Catherine lives her life, she also travels and gives her time to Habitat for Humanity. This provides plenty of opportunities for Catherine to capture the people and locations that bring her photographic stories to life.
During her travels, she has had plenty of opportunity to consider not just the ethical, but also the legal implications of photography at home and abroad. During her presentation, Travel Photography – Photographing While You Travel or Travelling to Photograph, she will discuss some of the things that she has learned that assist her in capturing the images that give her that great satisfaction while travelling in foreign countries and experiencing new cultures.
Please join us on Wednesday evening for Catherine’s informative and enjoyable presentation. We look forward to seeing you there!
