It is our pleasure to offer a photographic look at landscape photography and share a wide ranging perspective on capturing both the natural world and the built up landscapes that we have explored ourselves. Photography offers an almost infinite number of ways to capture and appreciate the world around us and it will be our challenge to introduce a selection of images that may provide a wider and more inclusive way of looking at this very exciting and introspective field of photography. Bring your ideas and experiences to our gathering and share your notions of where and how and when to capture the landscapes of the world in order to share those moments with others now, and in the future. We look forward to an evening of new horizons!
Greg has been involved with photography for over thirty years and has traveled to six continents pursuing both subjects from nature and the architecture and social landscapes in both familiar places and far off lands. He has taught college for over ten years, and has worked in construction on the Navajo Reservation, in the Middle East and Africa, as well as the Southwest.
For the past decade he has worked to develop a small publishing business and a unique photo tour company, American Photo Tours, that allows him to share extensive field experiences with other enthusiastic photographers throughout the US and Canada. Greg’s wife Phyllis has become more of a partner in their business in the past few years, and with her natural photographic talent has been very active in accompanying Greg and other photographers on extended tours every year.
This year may be the one where Greg finally makes it to Antarctica and the spectacular beauty of the seventh continent. Greg is notoriously independent and his skills and accomplishments in photography have been essentially self-taught with a tremendous boost from a library full of exceptional books and images that have provided invaluable insight into this fascinating field of creative and interpretive art.
The objective of the Enchanted Lens Camera Club is to provide enjoyment and knowledge of photography to its members through their participation and efforts in club activities.
