Wild Things and Wild Places by Geryl Mortensen
Co-founder and photo editor for Birds Afield, Mortensen has an abiding love for wild things and wild places. When the arctic wind howls causing the great flight to take wing, he often travels the North American flyways, with a vintage Airstream following him down the road, chasing nature images, documenting wetland habitat, and mentoring aspiring photographers desiring to master bird-in-flight photography.

A Dallas native with over 100 stamps in his passport, Mortensen honed the craft shooting fashion, travel and sports. As a devoted waterfowl conservationist and naturalist, he focuses on inspiring others to embrace the natural lure of nature through images and musings of his journey afield. A lifelong student of flight, light and art, for the March presentation, he’ll share his passion for bird-in-flight photography, from the thrill of the chase along with the knowledge and techniques that help hone the craft into art. Drawing from personal experience as a flyboy, amateur astronomer and naturalist, he’ll share insights that resonate with nature photographers and kindred spirits.

Come early to the meeting for a presentation at 6:15pm in the Music Room!
