Upcoming Speaker Profile – Rod Frketich – Shooting the…

The Guelph Photographers Guild is pleased to host Rod Frketich, photo editor for the Waterloo Region Record, on Wednesday November 21, 2018!   A little bit about our speaker and his presentation:

Presenter Rod Frketich photo editor of the Waterloo Region Record will talk about a ‘typical’ day for a newspaper photographer is like. 

There really isn’t anything typical everyday—a newspaper photographer can expect anything from a hockey game, a business portrait to an accident, depending where the news takes them. 

He will touch on assigning, shooting an assignment to editing. 

Since graduating from the Loyalist college photojournalism program in 1991 Frketich has been a photographer at small weekly papers and dailies throughout Ontario. Later he switched to photo editing working at The Canadian Press, The Globe and Mail and The Record. 

Come out and join us for this great talk on November 21!

October 2018 Fall Colours Outing to Rattlesnake Point

Thirteen GPG members enjoyed a very colourful Saturday morning along Rattlesnake Point’s escarpment trails.  We shot the colourful vistas from each of the excellent lookouts along this section of the Bruce Trail. The valley below, with Mt. Nemo and Lake Ontario in the background, were subjects in their own right. They also created an excellent background for shooting the gnarly tree stumps and rocky crags in the foreground.

Afterwards, we enjoyed expresso/coffee/tea/and excellent hot chocolate with treats at Campbellville’s Flying Monkey Bike Shop and Coffee Bar (their date squares were very popular).
