Program: “Road Trip!” by Rikk Flohr –http://www.fleetingglimpse.com/

Rikk gave himself an assignment of sorts in September when he was scheduled to attend a wedding in Las Vegas.  He decided to drive there and take the long-slow way back.  The road trip that ensued lasted more than two weeks and covered a number of well known and lesser known national parks in the Western states of Nevada, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.  It ended with images Rikk took on the last leg of his trip in Austin Texas before driving back to Minnesota.

Rikk decided to take images from the same location as a tourist might at the parks, but to do so when the the light and conditions favored creating better images than the casual tourist might produce.  He is going to present images from this “road trip” to the club along with some of the stories he accumulated from persons he met along the way.  The stories and images may include photo shoots with models he met through Model Mayhem together with back stories about how these photo shoots were arranged.

Rikk Flohr is a professional photographer who also conducts workshops in Costa Rica and the south Dakota badlands.  He also teaches courses throughout the entire US on Adobe Lightroom.  He is currently preparing courses in Lightroom he intends to offer here in the twin cities at a substantial discount to camera club members.  Three club members recently attended his May badlands seminar and it was a great success.  One of our members is signed up for the December badlands seminar and there is only one space left for that on a first come basis.
