September 18: Members: “Show & Tell"
And find out where and how they caught them!
At this month’s dinner meeting we will have our traditional “What I Did On My Summer Vacation” program. This is when fellow WFF members show us photos of all the wonderful places they’ve been, the great people they’ve met and maybe even some of the terrific fish they caught. Or at least a good story about the one that got away!
October 18: Brian O'Keef: “Fly Fishing Photography"
Fishing bum with a camera!
"I have had so much fun pretending to call fly fishing photography work, that I still describe this endeavor as a 'hobby out of control'. I sold my first fly fishing photograph when I was 16 years old, and let me tell you, that was a fairly long time ago. Since then, it has been my absolute pleasure to work with some of the finest publishers, magazine and photo editors and graphic artists in the world.
My style is basically editorial in nature and natural. I do not use professional models or fancy lighting. If I did, I couldn't call this a hobby out of control. I have a very deep collection of images. From my backyard pond, here in Oregon, to far flung destinations like Alaska, the Bahamas, Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, Tonga, England, Mexico, Belize, Sierra Leone, Christmas Island and many more."
