Sotterley Presents: People and Perspectives with Dean Newman

August 7 @ 7:00 pm

August 7, 2024 – Nature photography is not the serene, life-prolonging experience most magazine articles say it is. In fact, it’s anything but the “Zen” experience they espouse. Come listen to Dean Newman, a nature photographer from our area, tell the “behind-the-scenes” stories of the images you see in publications. Dean has been bitten, scratched, kicked, spat on and along with any other ways birds, animals and reptiles can injure you, all in the name of “getting the shot”. You’ll never look at another magazine photograph the same.


This is a FREE in-person event, but registration is required.

Since leaving that farm he has lived across Europe in Iceland, Italy, Spain and Portugal. Dean is a retired Navy veteran who spent much of his career in aviation and, thanks to a very understanding wife, Sandy, now travels 20+ weeks a year in the U.S., Africa and South America chasing the natural world.
