May 2020 Program Meeting

May 8 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Scott Wilson on ‘A personal journey towards photo advocacy’

Landscape & wildlife photographer, Scott Wilson, shares his self-taught love affair with photography, starting with a Nottinghamshire (UK) camera club, tackling multiple genres and ‘breaking through’, before making a dream move to Colorado, in 2015. That dream turned nightmare with a stage 4 colon cancer diagnosis that threatened his life and his landscape photography pursuits, due to chemo-induced photosensitivity. So, Scott shot wildlife from the protective shade of his car and turned his new nature portfolio into a platform for cancer advocacy.
