  • Announcements
  • Guest Speaker: Lee Nordbye – Lee Nordbye Photography
    "Listening to the ice crunch as I dig my crampons into the ice, my mind wanders for a just a second.  When my attention returns to the moment, I find myself quickly sliding down the face of the steep ice face on Little Athabasca Glacier.  A  jerk of the rope and I come to an abrupt stop.  Without hesitation, I get up and start to climb up the face.  I reach my guide, he asks if I am ok, I say yes, we have a bit of a laugh and on we go to our target, Boundary Peak."  Lee will recount stories like this one from his adventures in the Rockies and will pair the stories with his bold visual stories.  Lee will detail what energizes him to take up adventures like the one above and the inspiration for each of his bold visual stories in the presentation.  Lee will share some tips and tricks he uses to capture his images.  Lee is excited to chat with you about photography and your journey.
