Club plans to show video about bird photography

WELLSBORO — Grand Canyon Photography Club President David Ralph has arranged a YouTube video showing of “Birds in Flight” by “Roamin’ Roman” Kurywczak.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday during the club’s monthly meeting at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center, 134 Main St.

Coincidentally, Kurywczak will present two days of instruction for the Two Rivers Photo Club in Binghamton, New York, on April 7-8. For details, see

Kurywczak started his “Roamin’ with Roman” photo tours about 12 years ago and has led tours all over the country since.

“As a nature photographer,” he said, “I got my start as a landscape photographer but over the last 30 years I have expanded my skills to include the world of macro, bird and wildlife photography.”

He stresses that his workshops cater to photographers who don’t want to get lost in the crowd and he strives to “provide a unique photographic experience with a high level of fun and energy for those who share my passion for photography.”

Kurywczak was born and raised in New Jersey where he continues to live with his wife, Pura, and two sons. He travels across the country, giving countless lectures and hands-on workshops as a member of the Sigma Pro Team. He has two ebooks, one on night photography and another more recent one on macro photography.
