Well-known local photographer David McKay will be the featured speaker for the Nevada County Camera Club on April 27 from 6:30-9 p.m. He will be sharing his methodologies for creating his panoramic images.

With 40 years as an award-winning professional photographer and teacher since 1976, McKay has explored every aspect of the photographic realm and had his work featured in local newspapers, magazines brochures and books. He also published his book, “Yuba Seasons: Images from the Wild and Scenic South Yuba River.”

“I am a photographer of the environment. Whether it is a cityscape or landscape, I immerse myself in my surroundings and capture them in creative ways through my lens. You can’t force creativity. You have to allow it, by being a part of where you are, not as a detached observer. I become something different when I pick up a camera and look through that magical window. Photography has been the ‘carrot-on-the-stick’ that has motivated me to learn things I wouldn’t have otherwise, to explore places I had never been, to communicate with people I didn’t know, and to be a great observer,” states his website.



McKay also has been mayor of Nevada City, owned a silkscreen and design business, and has been a strong supporter of the arts in the community.

During the second half of the meeting, camera club members will showcase their photos, as judges critique their submissions to help improve their photography. Categories for submitted photos include: black and white, color, nature — landscapes, nature — wildlife, travel, technical, photojournalism, and the monthly feature — black and white buildings.




The club meets at Unity in the Gold Country Spiritual Center, 180 Cambridge Court, Grass Valley. The public is welcome and there is no cost for first-time guests.

Currently, the club has over 100 members and aims to help members refine their skills.
