JeffPresident Jeff Shilling

Originally from Birch Hills (just south of PA), Jeff moved to  to Moose Jaw after graduating from high school to attend SIAST (CADD program) and he never strayed very far after finishing.

He bought his first Nikon DSLR a little over 6 years ago and discovered something amazing. Jeff loves photography, being able to capture the world around him as he sees it and being able to share his vision. As the years have gone by he has worked at developing his skills through trial and error but also through  classes to become more technically proficient.

Jeff joined the camera club finally four years ago to connect with like-minded people.

Vice-President,
Murray Rimmer

Murray first began to explore photography with a Minolta 110 format camera and over the subsequent years has eventually settled with a Canon 7D with upgraded better lenses for image quality.
His passion for photography spans over 40 years, during which he has enjoyed photographing people, landscape and lately some unusual subjects in challenging lighting situations.
Murray embraces the challenges of shooting at night and/or using a black backdrop. Among the mature members Murray is also known as McGuyver… make sure to ask him about this alias when you see him next.
Murray says: “Belonging to the camera club allows me to see what others are doing and to learn from them. I also love to share my experiences and techniques.”

Facebook Group Moderator Jerry Stevens

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.”
