7:15 pm: Club Program by Sharlott Hasty - "Wintertime Photography From Birds to Glaciers"

Sharlott Hasty is a member of both the Plano Photography Club and the Heard Nature Photographers Club. She was the 2018 PPC Co-Photographer of the Year.

Her nature and wildlife photos have won numerous awards in both those clubs as well as in Denton Photography Contests and the Gulf States Camera Club Council. They have also been published in Photographic Society of America (PSA) Magazine. The July 2017 issue of CoServ Magazine featured a cover story with photos about Sharlott and her husband Ron.

Sharlott retired as an educator from the Little Elm ISD. Wildlife photography is a serious hobby and she has traveled to more than sixty countries. She is an honorary life member of the Nature Conservancy, which has over one million members and has protected 120,000,000 acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide.

The theme of Sharlott's presentation will be wintertime photography from birds to glaciers; from Iceland, Wyoming, and our back yards in Texas to Japan.

She will be talking about tips, techniques, and settings with images as well as protecting you and your gear in cold weather.
