The Fontenelle Forest Bird Club is inviting Photo Club members to their March 6th meeting. Some of you will remember Tim White at the judge of several of our annual contests. He is an excellent photographer and felt that we would enjoy his program. Tim photographed in Maine with Steve Kress and his Project Puffin. He also spent time here in the plains photographing Cranes
“From Maine to the Plains”
A Photographer’s Journey
Photography and Music by Timothy White
The program is in two parts with the first being a photo tour and stories from my twenty-five years of photographing in Maine. There, I also led eight day Photo Safaris which travelled from the Coast to inland lakes and deep woods. We photographed puffins, whales, seals, and moose, as well as lighthouses, coastline,and many other scenic locations. Proceeds from my image sales and a program about Puffins helped raise funds to support the National Audubon Society’s “Puffin Project” headed by Dr. Steve Kress.The second part of the program features unique Nebraska wildlife. It covers my return to my native Nebraska where I have been photographing native wildlife and in particular Sandhill Cranes, Sharp-tailed Grouse, and Greater Prairie Chickens. Immigrant pioneers also play a part in this photographic tribute to our great state. My photography is combined with music I composed for this show. I hope my experiences and efforts will help others appreciate the natural world around us. It’s important to know that we can still have some of the same wildlife experiences asour ancestors. Photography gives us the opportunity to preserve these experiences for future generations.
