Jess Findlay Nov 26 -Guest Speaker

Weds Nov 26 7pm Langley Camera Club presents Jess Findaly

This is a public event, no charge admission, everyone is welcome.

In 2011 Jess was awarded the International Youth Photographer of the Year award from Nature’s Best, prompting him to take this serious hobby to the next level. Since then, photography has brought Jess deep into the British Columbia backcountry, the far reaches of the Aleutian Islands, the high Alaskan Arctic, Central and South America.  Jess has developed a unique style, combining elements from both landscape and animal photography, creating contextual images that speak to the animal’s and environment’s story.

***POSTPONED***  Dee’s presentation has been postponed – please stay tuned for the new date. Thank you

Dee Lippingwell presents on Weds Nov 26 7pm Langley Community Hall, this is a public, no charge event – everyone is welcome!

Vancouver born, award winning Dee Lippingwell started her journalistic photography career some 40 years ago, concentrating her attention and her lens on the entertainment industry. Her love of music propelled her toward shooting local musicians and her success on that level led her into shooting the most famous of all rock idols of the 70′, 80’s, 90’s and on into a new century.

First 3 songs no flash“…. Being in ‘the pit’ and knowing that you have the opportunity to capture a moment in time is exhilarating but it’s also stressful. I get butterflies in my stomach even still and worry if the lights are good enough to shoot. I would imagine it feels similar to what a performer would feel just before going on stage. I anticipate the perfect shot like the performer anticipates the perfect performance so it’s all built on the same stuff.”

“I put out my first book ‘The Best Seat In The House’ in 1987 and everyone at that time asked me if I met or interacted with the stars, and if I did what happened. Everyone was so interested in the stories. They encouraged me to write them down, so I did, which resulted in 40 years worth of stories and photographs in one big pile.

A few years ago I started working through that pile and editing those stories adding photos to each one and before I knew it, I had my second book…….”FIRST THREE SONGS…NO FLASH!”
