Wildlife photographer Rick Rasmussen will be at the Nebraska Nature & Visitor Center Thursday, February 11 at 6:30 p.m. to speak at our camera club. Rick has traveled all over the world capturing images of nature. He'll share what equipment he uses and highlight his technique in an open discussion format. No cost for this one, just join us and enjoy!
Rick's favorite place to photograph is in his lifetime residence of Central Nebraska where he has shared the diverse wildlife opportunities with many photographers from around the United States. Traveling to other locations to experience other fascinating wildlife and landscapes has been a dream come true. Some of these destinations include: Alaska, Yellowstone and Antarctica.
