Travel Photography: An adventure down the Grand Canyon- Jonh Gayler

Location:  River of Life Christian Church, Fellowship Hall,
                  1177 Laurelwood Road, Santa Clara, CA 95054

When:  Tuesday.  February 12, 2019 from 7:00PM - 9:30PM



Topic:   Travel photography – An adventure down the Grand Canyon

Have you ever got back from a trip and wondered how you could possibly fully explain what you saw or what you did with your friends and family?

Sharing a journey can be an inspiration to those who are curious, for those who want to enjoy a vicarious journey, or as a trip down memory lane for those who have been and seen already. Telling a story in words has inherent limitations, and even a single image struggles to fully provide the background, context and emotion, especially for expansive or dynamic events. A travel presentation can take the time to develop the visual story. The narrator guides you along the route creating an immersive experience where you are an observer who becomes a participant. Anticipation builds as you adventure into parts unknown, you share the wonder of being introduced to new cultural experiences, and the excitement of surprise discoveries delights along the way.

This presentation explains the planning, logistics and execution of a river trip through the Grand Canyon, but it’s not all about the water. Side canyon hikes, wildlife, geology, prehistoric and modern culture, natural beauty and an immense scale of time and space all play a part in the story as well.

About Speaker  

John Gayler learned to kayak about the same time as he picked up his first camera, as a teenager growing up in the UK. Always up for a challenge he learned to read the river, navigate whitewater, and do an eskimo roll his kayak. Moving to the East Coast of the US he started leading instructional kayak trips for the American Youth Hostel association, the Boy Scouts of America and the World Scout Association, teaching hundreds of beginner and intermediate students to enjoy safe paddling techniques on whitewater rivers. On arriving in the Bay Area five years ago the nearest whitewater was along the coast, so he took his camera and his whitewater kayak to play in the surf and rock gardens, caves and arches along the Northern California coast from Monterey to Mendocino. Running the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon has always been an ultimate journey on his bucket list.

A lifelong traveler, his longer journeys include London to Istanbul by minibus, Frankfurt to Thessaloniki and Oslo to Helsinki via Nordkapp by car, the length of France by bicycle, wilderness backpacking in New Mexico, and weeks in a kayak on rivers in Northern Ontario. He has hiked the highest mountains in England, Scotland, Slovenia, Greece, Germany, and Norway, and recently circumnavigated Iceland by campervan and mountain bike.  Preserving the experience and character of each trip in photographs has allowed him to share his travels, reflect on the experiences, and encourage people to plan their own adventures.

Admission is $25 at the door.  Free for 101 photo club members.
