Linda Rutherford serves as a Director at the Coastal Arts League, when she isn't traveling the world to find exotic wildlife and unusual fish. A Bay Area native, she hikes in search of wildflowers and wildlife, and also scuba dives for underwater photography.
A local to the Bay Area, Jim Miglian has been inspired by the beautiful coastal cities, the foothills, and the high Sierras. Jim says that as technology and his skills improved, the ability to capture the moment became more of a reality. The passion for capturing the illusive moment remains his driving force.
Charlie Ginsburgh, President of the Peninsula Camera Club, has a special affinity for macrophotography. He strives to make the common, uncommon, showing a side of life that is always there but rarely seen. Charlie moderates the macrophotography study session for the Photography Association of America (PSA). He also judges competitions and presents classes.
Marlene's interest in photography goes back to 1976 when living in Paris. Life in the French capital and setting up her own darkroom provided opportunities for creativity. She rediscovered her passion for photography in 2014 as she adapted to the digital environment. Now she participates in several arts organizations and exhibits her work throughout the Bay Area. www.mcohen25.wix.com/portfolio-2015
About Peninsula Camera Club
Founded in 1950, the PCC is the oldest camera club in the Bay Area. Many photographers along the Coast and throughout San Mateo County have joined this club in order to socialize with other shutterbugs, receive knowledgeable critique of their images, attend classes, join in field trips, participate in gallery exhibits, and share their techniques and experience with other club members. The club hosts members of all skill levels and almost all are quite willing to share their expertise and excitement.
Anyone with an interest in photography is welcome to attend the Peninsula Camera Club to learn more about club activities. The group meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Central Park Recreation Center in San Mateo. You can find more information about PCC at www.peninsulacameraclub.com
On a monthly basis, a different photography expert attends the local club sessions to provide their comments and suggestions about club member photos, in Bay Area sponsored competitions. If this sounds interesting to you, please contact our President, Charlie Ginsburgh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This is the first public exhibition for Tito Guerrero, who has been taking pictures in both digital and analog film for many years. Through his images, he shares his sense of satisfaction and pleasure with the viewer. We are fortunate that Tito chose the Coastal Arts League for his debut. See his work on his website.
Nik started his photographic journey with black and white film, before his digital experimentation with light and color. To get the perfect photo, he will climb mountains, defy the ocean waves, or hike for miles before daylight to the perfect sunrise spot. He also finds inspiration in San Francisco's architecture and diverse communities. Find more images at www.nikfavretto.com
Butch or Bhupesh Patel, a professional architectural photographer says, “I joined PCC to keep my motivation in photography alive. I learn from the judges of competitions about common mistakes and how to improve. The club is a place where I can discuss many photography topics, from camera equipment to artistic techniques.
A biochemist by training, Sree Alavattam is a photographer at heart. "Nature provides incredible drama at every turn, and capture that one special moment has mesmerized me. Photography has allowed me to see things differently and pay attention to finer details. Here I showcase some of the amazing moments from Masai Mara, Kenya."
