Well-received photographer/presenter, Jeffery Allred returns

We can truly say, and back by popular demand, the club is very pleased to welcome Jeffery Allred who was enthusiastically applauded for his presentation two years ago. This time Jeffery will show some of his documentary travel and photo essay work while including some suggestions on composition and shooting techniques.

Jeffrey Allred has spent 27 years as a photojournalist for the The New York Times, USA Today, Associated Press, Getty Images,  Deseret News and  the Salt Lake Tribune.  Some of his recent stories of note include covering the 2013 Final Four basketball tournament, the Haiti earthquake in 2010,  the 2009 Sugar Bowl,  a Mexican immigration series in 2008, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002.   The Haiti earthquake coverage garnered him a Pulitzer Prize nomination.

Ogden Valley Fall Colors Field Trip - Saturday, 28-Sep, 6:00am

Join us the last Saturday of the month for a trip into upper Ogden valley for some Fall time shooting. MSN.com rated the upper Ogden Valley one of the 10 most Scenic areas for fall colors. The centerpiece of the Valley is Pineview Reservoir, with mountain peaks rising more than 9,700 feet, encircling a pastoral setting.  The valley to the east of Snowbasin resort is a lovely combination of grassy knoll, Scrub Oak, and Mtn. Maple.  We will start with a sunrise shoot of the peaks at Snowbasin and try to catch that first light of the day hitting them. Then we'll spend the rest of the morning shooting different areas in the valley where we can find the best color. 

Meet at the Greenery Restaurant at the mouth of Ogden canyon at 6:00AM and we can car pool from there. There is a ski bus parking lot right next to the restaurant we can use, located here: http://goo.gl/maps/DN8Qt  Sunrise is at 7:20, this will give us plenty of time to get to and scout for a desirable shooting location.

Or, if you're not quite as early, meet us on a pullout on Trappers Loop Rd. (rte 167) approximately 1.5 miles south of Snowbasin Rd. (rte 226) here: http://goo.gl/maps/CDCFB

Saturday, September 28th, 6:00 AM at The Greenery Restaurant.

Please RSVP: here.

Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot on the Calendar

On Saturday, October 5th the club will be on Bonneville Salt Flats for a very unusual photographic opportunity. Called the Bonneville Salt Flats Photoshoot this project draws on the creativity of all participants to produce a huge number of visual delights worthy of great image making. In addition to club photographers, we invite models, dancers, actors, musicians, yoga practitioners and others to be subject in front of our cameras. All are invited to bring clothing and/or props to support their vision for image-making. Some examples include large picture frames, lawn furniture, a bicycle, a canoe, and miscellaneous statuary. Your imagination should be your guide.

Take all this creative energy and combine it with one of the most visually fascinating landscapes in Utah and expectations are high we’ll make some very cool photographs.

In addition, pictureline and Profoto will be joining us with plenty of gear for participants to use and try out. They'll have two different lighting stations set up with D1 Air kits and other Profoto products that you can use with your talent to create some cool lighting effects. Profoto will have soft boxes and other light shaping tools on hand for you to try out and get creative with. The Profoto expert will be on hand along with a handful of knowledgeable pictureline employees.

Here are the details.








Travel Photography Workshop

After finding himself high atop a mountain in Korea at a sacred pagoda without so much as a simple point‐and‐shoot camera, Ray had an epiphany. Never again would he travel without a camera. That was 23 years ago.

Now after traveling over 30 times to exotic locations all over the world, including 3 trips to the Arctic, New Zealand, 3 trips to China, Thailand, Nepal, 2 trips to Ireland, twice to England, Spain, Italy, 8 trips to four different countries in Africa, multiple times to Canada, twice to Mexico, twice to Costa Rica and Korea. Ray has some pretty good ideas about travel photography.



Topics he will cover are:

  • Where should I go?
  • What should I take?
  • How should I pack?
  • How to approach foreign subjects.
  • What makes a great travel photo?
  • And more!

Ray’s presentations are informative, fun, packed with great photos and stories, and of course educational.

Join Ray and travel the world through his photography.

When: Tuesday, September 10th at 7pm

Where: Downtown SL Library, Conference Room B
