The Sun Lakes Camera Club kicks off the new year

Adventures in the sky

The Sun Lakes Camera Club kicked off the year with a fabulous presentation by local professional photographer Lisa Langell. Lisa has been active with photography since picking up a camera during her childhood. Active in nature photography, the years of honing her craft have offered her insight into her subject matter that is reflected in her images. Lisa offered inspiration on how to bring a personal style to shooting and to remember the end product when out in the field. A sought-after instructor around the world, her workshops come highly recommended and her cordial hands-on teaching is bound to leave you inspired. She has a workshop to the Galapagos that is like no other. Please visit for details and other photography instruction of interest such as trips to Alaska, Florida and Costa Rica, to name a few. Thank you, Lisa.
