Sharing passion for nature

The Shuswap Photo Arts Club will have a special guest in award-winning, B.C. nature photographer Norm Dougan

The Shuswap Photo Arts Club will have a special guest in award-winning, B.C. nature photographer Norm Dougan.

Dougan will present some of his outstanding nature and wildlife photographs from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 24 at the Seniors’ Fifth Avenue Activity Centre.

Dougan is passionate about nature and loves the outdoors.

Just over nine years ago he purchased his first digital camera. Now retired, he uses much of his time to pursue this passion.

Patience and a good understanding of photographic principles has allowed him to capture photos of many natural events and animals in settings most of us never see.

His wife, Carrie, is his constant companion and not only encourages his pursuits, but is frequently the catalyst that makes many of these photos happen.

While a member of the Kamloops Photo Arts Club, Norm received a prestigious ‘Honourable Mention’ in the ‘Great Backyard Bird Count 2012 for his image of a common redpoll and a Second Place Honours in the composition category.

This North American competition is sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Audubon and Bird Studies of Canada. There were 6,000 entries.

In 2013 he received another international award, placing second in the Nature category in the 4-Nations Competition.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
