Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Russ Burden on Cherished Spectacles of Nature
On October 6th, Focus Camera Club’s very own Russ Burden will present “Cherished Spectacles Of Nature.” This musically accompanied show is a compilation of images from locations where Russ travels on both his nature photography tours and on his own. The show includes wildlife that range from macro insects to large mammals and scenics that range from intimate landscapes to majestic mountains. The show will be a relaxing escape into the world of nature’s beauty and wonder.
Russ has a knack for finding serenity amongst chaos by chiseling away the unnecessary to make his photographs simple and to the point. For Russ, deciding what to exclude is equally as important as knowing what to include. Finding drama in the ordinary is his key to capturing an image with impact.
Russ is an internationally published photographer. His images have appeared on calendars published by Inner Reflections, Kodak, Audubon, Sierra Club, and National Wildlife. He is a multiple time award winner in the annual Windland Smith Rice International Nature’s Best competition and as a result, many of his photographs have hung in the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. Russ runs nature photography tours to many locations around the US in the spring, fall and winter. Destinations include the Tetons and Yellowstone, Oregon Coast, Bryce and Zion in the fall, Monument Valley, White Sands NM and Bosque Del Apache, and many other locations. For years he has been writing weekly HOW TO columns for TakeGreatPictures.com and currently has a number of How To articles on the Outdoor Photographer website. His work is marketed through Photo Library and often shows up in magazines and advertisements around the world. Russ has two books to his credit – Amphoto’s Complete Guide to Photography and The Best of Nature by Amherst Media.
