Join us Monday September 21st at 7 PM for “The Photographer’s Guide to Colorado’s National Parks and Monuments”. Few states in the continental United States offer the range of geography and topography that Colorado does. The variety of scenic locations draw millions of annual visitors, most hoping to document their visit in photographs.
Bob recently released a guidebook on this topic. This guide offers aid to photographers who wish to do their own exploring rather than engage the help of a guide. It provides all the information photographers need to be in the right place, at the right time, with the right lens. Each chapter introduces the special features unique to each location, providing in-depth and reader-friendly details on geology, history, and more, to enhance your understanding and add to your sense of wonder. Along with this vital information, photographer Bob Maynard and naturalist Cindy Maynard share their extensive personal experience, entertaining anecdotes, and a selection of Bob’s photographs. This guide can help you turn your next visit to Colorado into an adventure in learning.
Check out their photo tours and workshops

More about Dale Ralph
I got my first camera, a used Kodak Brownie, while in Day Camp way back when. I have been taking photos in one form or another ever since. However, I became more serious about photography about ten years ago taking photos of landscapes and nature while on business trips. However, it wasn’t until I retired from corporate America at the end of 2013 that I was able to fully immerse myself. Retirement was when I discovered the works of Brooke Shaden and fell in love with conceptual composition photography. I have been hooked ever since.
Although I have taken many in-person and on-line courses, I find that my best teacher is necessity. I know what I want to do. I then research the internet and books. (U-Tube is a great resource!) Trial and error are also a significant elements of my process. I keep trying until I find something that works.
It’s all great fun!

More about Terry Mieger
A retired educator, I taught high school Biology and Chemistry for 40 years in Milwaukee Wisconsin and Aurora Colorado. Photography became a part of my life, in the early 1950s, with an Argus C-3 camera and a roll of Kodachrome film. As a student at Colorado State University in the mid 1960s’, I studied large format photography and macrophotography working with biological and architectural subjects. In 2013 I formed Chaos Photo to teach photography and digital darkroom with workshops and personal consultation specializing in Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Topaz plugins. I do many presentations for photography clubs specializing in Workflow, Lightroom and Photoshop. Other topics include High Dynamic Range Photography, Macro Photography and Focus Stacking. During the last few years, I have judged many club competitions and the Arapahoe County Fair Adult Photography Division. I consider myself as a resource and an educator with very broad tastes in photography.

About Mike Berensen:
Mike Berenson is a talented photographer based in Littleton, Colorado who combines his love for the starry night sky with his love for landscape photography. Mike says it feels a little strange telling people that his passion for night photography actually started deep underwater in the tropical waters of the Caribbean. But that’s where he found his love for sharing wonders of the world with those who aren’t able to see for themselves. And once he transitioned to the mountains of Colorado under starry night skies and started applying some innovative techniques, he knew he’d found his calling.
These days, Mike enjoys sharing techniques (both out in-the-field and in post-processing) with night photography workshop students in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. Mike has the honor of having won Best of Show awards in the Littleton Eye Of The Camera and the Lone Tree Photography Show, both in 2013.
