Jeff joined the camera club finally two years ago to connect with likeminded people.

Jerry Stevens has been a longtime employee of SaskEnergy. Six years ago Jerry’s received a camera for Christmas. Jerry used to hunt and fish a lot but soon his passion shifted to photography. He enjoyed the fact that pictures can be taken year round, and that he was able to explore nature and capture its beauty during all seasons. Jerry shares: “There so many ways to take a picture, there are night shots, light painting, in the sun, in the shade, after a rain. Best of all, after you collect all your photos you can review them during the winter and still feel the heat of summer.”
