Crebbin’s presentation is entitled “Street Photography in Cuba.” When Crebbin retired from broadcast television production in 2001, she opened Jo Crebbin Photography. She has been focusing on wildlife and travel photography from all over the world because she is passionate about endangered animals.

Crebbin exhibits her work in local galleries from North Carolina to Florida, is a supplier for digital stock photography companies and lectures enthusiastically about travel photography. She recently gave a presentation entitled “From Jaguars to Polar Bears: Endangered Wildlife Photography” at the Transylvania County Library.

Miller’s presentation is entitled “Artistic Ren-

dering.” Miller is the owner of Mountain Lens Photography, where he teaches photography classes and workshops in Asheville. His mission is to use “immersion” in photography: field trips, consulting, critiquing, offering digital imaging and printing services. Miller has given presentations on technical and artistic photography.

He has had cover photos on several magazines, prints on display in hotels, office and restaurants. His photography has been featured on websites, regional, state and national publications. His photos have been exhibited in numerous galleries, including the Biltmore in Asheville.

Guests are welcome. The club is open to all photographers, beginner or advanced. For more information, call (828) 884-3156.
