March 19 - Awards and Installation DinnerApril 2 - 7 p.m.“Lessons I Learned on Route 66,” with Sandi WheatonCanadian photographer Sandi Wheaton will share her story and photos in this special RCC program. After being downsized from General Motors during the 2009 recession, Sandi set out on a life-changing photographic journey across Route 66 and ultimately went from unemployment to working as a freelance photographer, blogger, tour director, forensic photography instructor and cruise-ship moviemaking lecturer (her “career reinvention” story was featured in the 2014 bestseller The Happiness of Pursuit). Based in Windsor/Detroit, Sandi travels the globe, but she has also been photographing the California desert for over 20 years. She travels here annually to document the changing landscape at the Salton Sea, and to lead workshops in nearby photography hotspots.April 16 - 7 p.m. Photographing Africa with Deborah Seibly, Christine PenceTwo well-traveled members will share information, tips and images from their experiences on photo outings and safaris in Africa. What are the trips like? What’s included in the trip package. Is it safe? What is the recommended camera equipment? Is it OK to pet the leopards? Take selfies with the wart hogs? Clearly, bagging great Africa wildlife shots requires more than showing up! Deb, who has made two trips, and Christine, whose Africa outings include river rafting and photographing mountain gorillas, will help us see what’s possible (and not) with a camera on safari, and why Africa should be on our short list of photo destinations.
