Monday, October 2, 7:30 PM

Join professional nature photographer and workshop leader Roman Kurywczak for this exciting updated educational program covering everything you will need to know about photographing wildlife in the field. The photographic journey will cover exotic locations such as Tanzania but also include many tips for pho-tographing wildlife closer to home in some unexpected places. Minimum gear requirements will be dis-cussed for both the safety of the wildlife and the photographer as well as some exciting newer options. Camera settings will be covered including what mode to use as well as choosing the right ISO for wildlife portrait work as well as action photography. There will be plenty of image examples showing how those settings will provide im-pact to your images. The program concludes with an in-depth segment on photographing birds in flight.

Our speaker has presented at GLPA on several past occasions. This year he is combining it with a macro workshop on Sunday October 1st at the club. He has been a professional nature photogra-pher for over 20 years who conducts lectures and workshops across the globe. His boutique tour company, Roamin’ with Roman Photo Tours, caters to small groups of only 4 to provide the ultimate learning experience for participants. Whether he is out in Tanzania or standing before a roaring wa-terfall in Iceland, Roman’s energy and passion for nature photography are clearly evident. You can often find him out in Arches or Yellowstone national park late at night photographing the nighttime landscapes and calling it fun! Closer to home, Roman will spend countless hours doing macro pho-tography. While he enjoys photographing insects, his favorite subject is flowers, which he buys for his wife and he is sticking to that story. Roman is equally comfortable photographing landscapes, macro subjects, and wildlife whether he is at some exotic location or close to home.

His down to earth and easy to follow teaching style make him a highly sought after lecturer. He has given countless lectures and workshops across the country. A proud member of the Tamron Crea-tive Collaborative, as well as the author of several instructional eBooks on nature photography, Ro-man strives to share his passion for photography as others have shared with him. After 56 years as a New Jersey resident, just 13 miles outside New York City, Roman and his wife, Pura of 31 years have recently relocated to SW Florida.
