Our next meeting’s program:
Rob Floerke – Madagascar
Few people ever have the opportunity to travel to someplace as wildly remote as Madagascar. The next best thing may be joining wildlife photographer Rob Floerke’s presentation, as he shares images from his journey to what is sometimes called “the big, red island.” We’ll also hear about his experiences in the rural countryside, capturing the unique romance of the landscape in what has been recognized as one of the world’s top ten hotspots of biodiversity.
Rob Floerke is a long-time resident of Davis, CA and past President of the Photography Club of Davis. Rob began taking photographs during his teenage years and continues to do so to the present specializing in landscape, wildlife and travel photography. He retired from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife after 35 years of service in December 2007 and continues to support conservation education as a volunteer docent at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area teaching children the value of wetland conservation and leading public tours of the wildlife area. Rob has taught photography classes for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) and the Davis Art Center. Rob has attended the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, Aspen Photo Workshops and many digital photography classes. Rob has also exhibited his work in gallery shows in Bistro 33, Gallery 1855, International House, View Point Gallery and the Presidio of San Francisco and has wildlife photos published in Outdoor California magazine; Crown Jewels: Five Great National Parks Around the World and the Challenges They Face; and
various children’s books in the United Kingdom.
