Presented by David Levasheff
David will present photographs of birds he has encountered during his 14-year birding career. You’ll see some of his worst photographs and many of his best, as he recounts his challenges and highlights, and he describes which methods work for him. He will present a selection of birds from the Western United States, Florida, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Europe, Tanzania, China, Tibet, Tasmania, Peru, Ecuador, the Galapagos, Belize, Guatemala and Costa Rica. David finds foreign travel a way to continue the excitement he gets in observing our feathered jewels for the first time.
An avid amateur photographer since the mid-1960s, David spent his working career in high technology in the aerospace industry here in the Santa Barbara area while also raising a family. In 2004 he made the leap from film to digital photography. Free from the darkrooms, print labs and the costs of film processing, he stumbled upon birds as a subject. David retired from his career in 2011 and volunteered to be webmaster for the Santa Barbara Audubon Society, a position he still maintains today.
