Most of you love the exhibits of wildlife photographers at the art fairs. Seeing the result of the photographers’ FOUR P’s, be prepared, be patient, be persistent, be passionate, brings incredible excitement. We will have a chance to experience that excitement at our April ASK meeting when wildlife photographer Bill Heyd brings his photos and stories of his craft and passion.

Bill is not a professional wildlife photographer. But it certainly is a passion. Bill was a chemist with Upjohn for 30 years, and retired from Pfizer. In retirement Bill turned more fully to wildlife, nature, and candid photography. Bill says, “I prepare for wildlife photography by envisioning what I would like to see, learning my desired subject’s behaviors, choosing times and locations conducive to finding what I seek, and reacting quickly to what I see.” His Canon EOS1DX SLR camera allows him to photograph flying birds, dragonflies, butterflies, and bobcats.

You may have seen exhibits of Bill’s photos around Kalamazoo already, but you won’t want to miss this chance to see them again and hear the stories that go with them.

Our program starts at 7:30 PM and is preceded by a social time with light refreshments at 7:00 PM. Guests and the general public are encouraged to attend. Handicap parking and access is at either the front or rear entrance of the building. Please remember to bring your own coffee mug to reduce our dishwashing.
