NEXT MEETING – FEBRUARY 12, 2019 – 6:30 PM
Presentation by Joe Tucker and Judge For 1/25/19 Digital Contest
The HSV Camera Club is pleased to have Joe Tucker of Cabot, Arkansas, as its guest speaker on Tuesday, February 12. A well-traveled photographer, Tucker will give a slide presentation of his experiences in Antarctica and Easter Island. Prior to the meeting, he will have judged the Club’s digital contest and will also give comments on the submissions.
Tucker grew up in Tennessee and before moving to Cabot in 1995, he also lived in South Carolina, Georgia, Oklahoma, Alaska, and Texas. At 8 years old in the summer of 1955, he was given his first camera--a Kodak box camera that he quickly learned to load with 620 roll film. Off to Wyoming the family went, and thus began Tucker's love of travel and photographing nature and landscapes. He obtained his first 35mm camera in high school, having progressed through a series of roll file bellows models. Blessed with two uncles who were professional photographers (one from each parent), he received early expert instruction. His parents were both supportive of his love for photography and chemistry. Joe earned college degrees in Chemistry and Education while honing his photographic skills in the hills, caves, and mountains of Tennessee.
Tucker enrolled in the New York City School of Modern Photography in the 70's and taught photography classes at public schools and boy and girl scouting programs. He has progressed through the Nikon models and lenses since 1966 to today's D800 digital and other bodies. Professionally, he used his skills performing forensic photography. Now retired from a 35-year career in commercial casualty risk, claim and litigation management, he is exploring more of our planet. Joe has traveled extensively in every state of our nation, every province of Canada, and numerous countries. He and his wife Linda of 49 years recently returned from Antarctica and Easter Island, rounding out their visits to all seven continents. Joe’s passion is photography, and he says that he is honored to share this with the Club.
