World-renowned nature photographer Lewis Kemper will offer a nature photography workshop as a fundraising activity for the Yolo Basin Foundation in Davis. On Saturday, Feb. 2, Kemper will explore the essentials of composition and light in a classroom setting.

As the sun sets, the participants will be at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area east of Davis for a field session to practice what was taught in class. After a light dinner at the Wildlife Area Headquarters, group members will review their photographs and present a selection for group discussion. This class is appropriate for photographers of all levels.

Kemper has been photographing nature in America for more than 30 years, including 11 years in Yosemite National Park. He is one of Canon USA’s Explorers of Light, an elite group of photographers, and he leads photography workshops around the country. His work has been published in magazines, books and calendars worldwide.

The workshop is part of the Yolo Basin Foundation’s fundraising series, a “Gaggle of Gatherings,” which consists of a variety of field trips, classes and workshops offered throughout the year. The nature photography workshop costs $100 per person, runs from 1 to 9 p.m. and includes dinner. All proceeds will go to the Yolo Basin Foundation’s wetlands education programs.

To reserve a spot on the tour, go to the website at www.yolobasin.org and click on “Gaggle of Gatherings” or call the Yolo Basin Foundation at 530-758-0530. Yolo Basin is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the appreciation and stewardship of wetlands and wildlife through education and innovative partnerships.
