"The Natural World Always Puts On A Show"

Celebrating What’s Right With The World!

Join us for an evening of beauty. Professional Photographer, Alan Bauer, will share some of his favorite photographs. “Celebrate what’s right with the world! Sometimes we just have to slow down or look more closely, but there is always something fascinating to appreciate right around us. Come spend an evening with professional photographer Alan L. Bauer as he shares an image intensive presentation sharing many of his personal celebrations. From hiking to birding to just standing still looking at what’s nearby, everywhere is something worth celebrating and making each day a better experience!”

"The greatest value of my photographic art is using it as a tool of communication to better educate people about the beauty surrounding us."
