South Africa Photo Safari
Presented by Richard and June Siggins

Come join us as we share photos and stories from our December 2019 Photo Safari to South Africa. We spent a day at a bird sanctuary and seven days in the 100,000-acre Welgevonden Game Preserve. December is summer in Africa, the time of green growth, lots of birds, and baby animals in the bush. You will see photos and videos of dozens of birds, big game, and even some exotic reptiles and insects. We saw 120 different species while in Welgevonden. You may even see a video of Richard participating in the South African sport of Bokdrol Spoeg.

An avid outdoor and wildlife photographer, Richard has been traveling and taking photos of nature since 2006. He has made award winning photos of subjects in national parks in the US, Canada and even South Korea. He has even made a few in our region and his own backyard. Photography is his favorite subject and he is always happy to share his experiences to help other photographers. June has recently taken up photography and is making excellent photos.

Tom Raymond Travelogue, Feb 10 2020 6:30 pm Eastman Banquet Lodge 6:30 PM 406 Bays Mountain Park Rd Kingsport Tn. 37660

Tom Raymond began his career in photography as a college undergraduate working for school publications at the University of Tennessee, winning several statewide awards for photojournalism. Photography was then set aside while he pursued a career in academic medicine. Following an M.S. degree in biology from East Carolina University, and a PhD degree in biochemistry and pathology the Wake Forest University School of Medicine, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Universities of Iowa, Oregon and M.I. T., after which he joined the faculty of East Tennessee State University College of Medicine in 1978. His academic research resulted in numerous publications in peer review journals and grant funding in excess of four hundred thousand dollars.
In 1987 he resigned the tenured position of Associate Professor of Medicine to start Fresh Air Photo. A transition that was profiled in the March 1989 issue of Photo District News, entitled, “Is There a Doctor in the Studio”.
Over a career spanning 35 years serving both Fortune 500 and regional clientele, Fresh Air Photo maintained a large studio with 2-3 full time employees plus an intern program with ETSU. We assisted numerous clients in winning recognition from their peer organizations, such as ASID, AIA, AGC, NAHB, Graphis Press, etc. Tom was a recipient of the Best of ASMP in 2008, and received the Silver Award for lifetime achievement in advertising by AAAA in 2014. His work as official photographer of the National Storytelling Festival, with over 25,000 original images, is now housed in the Tom Raymond collection at the U.S. Library of Congress. In 1991, Tom was put under contract with DuPont to document the career of NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon; a project that continued for the next 19 years.
Tom resides with his wife , Cynthia Reynolds, a retired chiropractor, on their horse farm in Jonesborough. Although he closed his studio in late 2017, he continues to create stock imagery and perform pro bono work for ETSU.
