GENERAL MEETING & PRESENTATION - "Fly Fishing Photography for Everyone" with Brian O'Keefe

It’s a familiar scenario. You finally net that big fish and just have to get a bragging rights photo - except you’re on your own, you can’t easily find your phone or camera, your hands are cold, and your buddy is nowhere to be seen. It happens to us all and we wind up with a shot that is more net than fish, often drop our phone/camera in the river and make the fish suffer needlessly. If that has ever happened to you, do not miss Brian O’Keefe’s excellent program on how to get great shots on your smart phone with or without your buddy’s help. Brian is a world-renowned photographer with many books and articles to his credit (including the recent cover of FLY FISHERMAN), and a club favorite. He describes the show:

“This presentation is on fly fishing photography tips. No high tech, professional speak, just useful tips on taking better photos. We all share photos now, and/or post photos on social media, or give fly club presentations, or just brag to your friends. I will show you dozens of easy and simple ways to take great looking pictures. I emphasize being fast and easy on the fish. I’ll cover the most important features on your phone/camera and easy tricks that will impress all your friends. I’ll cover point and shoot cameras, waterproof options and almost all my tips apply no matter what kind of camera you use. Beside a lot of easy to understand, useful information, my example photos are from all over the world, with nice fish, scenery, action, etc. I encourage everyone to have their phones handy, as we will be doing some ‘hands on’ work. Also, if you don’t know how to do a screen grab, learn how (Google/YouTube) as that can be handy and faster than taking notes on your cocktail napkin.”

“I have combined a lifetime of fly-fishing photography with a lot of serious fly fishing. I published my first fly fishing photo when I was 16. That was 51 years ago! In that time, I have been very busy trying to fish and photo as many interesting places as possible. My angling travels have taken me to distant destinations like Cuba, Tonga, Bikini Atoll, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Kashmir, England, Brazil, Nicaragua and many more. As much as I like trips to the Bahamas, Belize, the Yucatan, I am just as much a home water fisherman. I moved to Central Oregon in 1975 and guided on the Deschutes, North Umpqua and Klamath in California through the late 70’s. I have been fortunate to live on steelhead rivers, the Metolius River and now, on the Snake River. I have recently moved to Eastern Idaho near the Henry’s Fork.

Fly fishing is a lifestyle!”
