Wednesday, April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This will be a regular club meeting where guests are welcome.
Our April 8 presentation is “British Columbia: Paradise for a Nature Photographer”. From the Rockies to the rugged Pacific coastline, BC’s wild spaces are home to an incredible diversity of life. Join award-winning nature photographer Liron Gertsman for a photo presentation of our beautiful province, exploring his adventures searching for wildlife, astonishing natural scenes, and the techniques used to photograph them.
At 19 years old, Liron Gertsman is already an accomplished nature photographer. His work has been experienced by millions in some of the largest museums across the world, including the Natural History Museum in London and the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. You may have seen him on CBC’s “The National”, heard his voice on CBC Radio One, or seen his work in publications such Canadian Geographic magazine, The Guardian, GEO magazine, and others. Liron uses his photos to educate on the importance of preserving the natural world for the continued health and existence of all who live on our planet. As a naturalist and photographer, he feels it is his duty to show people the essence of Earth, by thinking outside the box to create eye-catching images that connect people with the environment. Liron’s work has been widely recognized and awarded, sweeping the youth category of the 2018 Audubon Photography Awards and earning a highly commended designation in the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Liron currently studies biology at the University of British Columbia as he continues to build upon his passion and commitment to the environment.
