Our October meeting will be held at 7:30 PM on October 18, 2021, via Zoom. We are fortunate to have Stanly Bysshe Stan is an award-winning nature photographer and he will discuss “Winter in Yellowstone”. His 14 trips to Yellowstone make him the perfect speaker.
Stan’s photographic journey started in the 1960s with a hand me down Nikkormat. But because of his love for scuba diving and marine tropical reef ecology, his equipment and images became dedicated to underwater nature. By 2010 it was time to hang up the fins and when he joined Northern Virginia Photographic Society, Stan was exposed to a whole new world of land based photography. Still nature remained a driving force behind his images.
At NVPS Stan has served on multiple committees and is a Past President. He has given multiple talks to the club and to several local photo clubs as well. In the past he enjoyed teaching underwater photography but over the past six years he has helped lead photo tours to Florida, New Mexico, Washington State, Alaska and Yellowstone National Park. Of his fourteen trips to Yellowstone, five have been during the winter, including this past January. The winter season rapidly became his favorite time of the year to visit the park. While this is by far and away the most challenging season to be in Yellowstone, it can be the most rewarding. Stan will talk about why Yellowstone in the winter is such a magical place, how and where you can get the best images, some techniques for shooting in the winter and how to try and stay warm in a region that routinely records the lowest temperatures in the lower forty eight States.
