Betty Sederquist, writer, educator, and award winning photographer will highlight the essentials of travel photography at the Nevada County Camera Club meeting on Monday evening, April 25. “This will be a pragmatic look at what photographers can expect when going to Tanzania. I’ll be talking about travel logistics, shots and medications, clothes, packing, typical animals to be seen and how to photograph them, and some preferred photo gear. Of course I’ll also be showing a lot of beautiful photos of animals and landscapes in this amazing part of the world,” said Sederquist.
After purchasing her first Nikon camera in Japan while she was in her early 20s, Sederquist moved to Alaska and bought a dark room set up. This led to a job as a darkroom assistant with a commercial photographer where her photography skills developed. Since then, her photographs and writing have been published by Alaska magazine, National Geographic books, National Wildlife Federation, and Sunset magazine. In addition, she has published nine of her own books. She was associate editor/staff photographer of Alaska magazine as well as editor of Sacramento Magazine. Her images have been chosen for the last three years for the prestigious Showcase Gallery, North American Nature Photographers Association. She describes herself as a “compulsive educator” after 20 years of teaching college photography and giving many of workshops and speaking engagements throughout northern California. “Teaching has become my greatest calling, my way of giving back for the many opportunities I have had,” stated Sederquist.
Betty lives in Eldorado County and her photographs are displayed in the Art Studio 360 and Iron Willow Gallery in Placerville.
