NOVEMBER PROGRAM 2019: Gary Bairy, Birds in Nature


Outdoor Photographer, Gary Baird, has traveled much of our country, from The Olympic Peninsula in Washington to The Everglades in Florida capturing images of wildlife in their natural environment, and now he is coming to the Sandhills Photo Club to show members and guests the basics of bird photography. He will cover the equipment and techniques he uses to capture his award-winning images and the best places in the Carolinas and nationally to look for birds.

As an elementary school teacher and administrator for 40 years, Gary loves teaching. “I know from experience, if the learners are board, I’m in trouble.” He said. “So, I work hard to make my presentations entertaining as well as educational.” His aim is to leave participants with some fresh insights on bird photography and feeling like their time was well spent.

Now retired, Gary and is wife/photo assistant Sue, travel the country enjoying the outdoors and pursing their passion for photography. “The nice thing about being a nature photographer is that every time you go out to shoot, you are almost guaranteed to see something new or amazing. There are awe-inspiring events taking place every day in nature. It is up to each photographer to bring his or her vision and skill to capture those moments.”
