Guest Speaker - Phil Leider

is not Required
PHOTOGRAPHER PHIL LEIDER will be guest speaker of the Memphis Camera Club (MCC) on May 10, 2018. A prolific photographer and inveterate road tripper, Leider will share his images and memories of "The Ultimate Road Trip: Alaska."
Road tripping has long been a part of Leider's life. During his early days on the East Coast, he often would head west or north to Canada with his canoeing friends "to explore wild and remote rivers." Leider shared his love of nature and exploring with his daughters, Erin and Beth, and took them on annual treks backpacking or "touring new and exciting places."
Prior to his Alaska venture, his longest road trip was a 2,800 mile journey from Memphis to Cabo San Lucas in Baja Mexico.
Leider's presentation for MCC will include images of the bears and eagles of the Chilkoot River in southeast Alaska and his photography of the Rainbow Glacier on nearby Chilkat Inlet.
We meet at the Longinotti auditorium in the St. Francis medical complex, see this map.
