Wildlife: From Yellowstone to Patagonia Program: April 7, 2022

Larry Petterborg

One need not go to Alaska or Africa to photograph wild animals, but that is fun and rewarding. Wildlife is everywhere. Wherever you find yourself, you will encounter wild creatures and you will be able to document those moments.

Says Larry: “In this presentation, I will talk about photographing wildlife in all its various forms from Yellowstone National Park in North America down to Patagonia in South America with stops in between at wildlife refuges, parks and private ranches.”  

He is president of Dallas Camera Club, a member of Plano Photography Club and a member of the Heard Nature Photographers Club.  He uses Olympus equipment.

Larry was born and raised in Utah. He earned two degrees in biology from the University of Utah, served in the U.S. Army, and then moved to Texas to pursue another degree at the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio. While there, he joined the Woodlawn Camera Club, now the Greater San Antonio Camera Club, and since has been actively involved in club photography. He is a retired instructor from Texas Woman’s University School of Physical Therapy.
