August Monthly Meeting

SPEAKER/JUDGE: Our guest speaker for this month is Greg Ferguson.

Greg FergusonGreg has spoken at the club several times in the past and his presentations on travel/wildlife photography are always well received. Greg is an award winning photographer and has been involved with photography for more than 30 years. He has studied under Neil Chaput de Saintonge, John Shaw, Galen Rowell, George Lepp, Marc Muench, Art Morris, and Moose Peterson. Since 1999 he has studied digital printing with Charles Cramer and Bill Atkinson, two pioneers of this science and masters of this art form. He spends a few days with them every year for critiques, catching up on new technical information, and to hone his craft of digital printing. He is a founding member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) www.nanpa.org, and a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), www.photoshopuser.com.
In 2008 Greg received a Highly Honored award in Nature's Best Magazine's 2008 Photograpy Contest and his work was published in the Fall 2008 edition of the magazine. His  work has also been published in the 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010 editions of the North American Nature Photography's annual showcase Expressions magazine. Greg is a frequent speaker and presenter at camera clubs in the southeast.
Greg pursues photography with a passion; it is his avocation in the purest sense of the word since it is not his primary source of income.  He has traveled extensively on business around the United States all his adult life. When he travels on business he often spends a few extra days to enjoy his photography in wilderness areas nearby, thus enjoying the best of both worlds.

      Greg has a very disciplined approach to photography.
      I can relate since the approach and structure are based on successful business practices.

      Discipline and practice are very important in learning and getting better. I need a lot of these and maybe the presentation will push me towards that direction.
