John Humphrey, a wildlife photographer, is the featured artist at Copeland Gallery. His snaps could be seen from Monday through 30th March with an artists reception from 5pm to 7 pm on 6th Feb. there will be refreshments, and the exhibit it is free to the public.
Humphrey, born in Florida, was raised in Southern California. When he retired from the Verizon Communications, he along with his wife went to Carson Valley. Humphrey told that his love has always been the wildlife as well as the outdoors, from viewing, to capturing to protecting, those snaps that he envision, and to share those snaps for others to relish and learn from.
He further added that for the last forty years he has played with photography, shooting military air shows, family, wildlife as well as several special events, but for the last 6 years he has concentrated on the wildlife across the Carson Valley when stepping up his photography endeavors to include wildlife tours to click pictures of eagles, wild horses, owls and others.
Much of his wildlife exposure has been in the Yellowstone National Park, working with biologist, geologist, rangers, researchers and naturalists for more than thirty years.
Copeland Gallery is at the 1572 Highway 395 in Minden. The photo gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm from Monday through Saturday.
