March 19 - Paul Rentz,
Paul Rentz has a
longstanding interest in photography,
which intensified during the 23 years
that he co-owned and owned Rush
Hour Photo (NW Third and Harrison for
those who remember). After selling the
business in 2008, he met several friends
who hooked him on birds, at the same
time that his photographic skills were
continuing to develop. The first part of
Paul’s program will be a photographic
and video tour of Northwestern wildlife
refuges, and in the second part—tips
on bird photography from an expert.
