Bill Conway Club Secretary

Bill has been taking pictures for over 50 years, starting as an instrumentation engineer in the aerospace industry using both still and video film cameras to record images and events. His interest in photography continued in his personal life taking shots with his Nikons while traveling and using a Nikonos for his SCUBA adventures. With the advent of digital cameras, Bill has found the myriad of options and settings daunting and is still discovering many of the features that his new cameras offer. Joining the Indian River Photo Club has offered the opportunity for him to join like-minded enthusiasts in looking at, and presenting, the world through the artist's lens.

Nick has had a passion for landscape and architectural photography for over 40 years. He developed and printed his own black and whites refusing to accept the world of Digital, when it seemed everyone else was moving in that direction and the fact that it was becoming increasingly difficult to develop and print in color he decided to give it a try and so he bought his first digital and quickly fell in love with it.

Nick and his wife Juliann decided to make the move to Vero Beach from the North East several years ago and despite the HOT summers they love it down here. Juliann has stepped into the world of art with her new passion of painting with oils; together they have transformed their home into an art studio and gallery.

Retired from a Communications Company and currently work part time as a manager of a storage facility.

I've been a hiker for 20 years hiking through England, New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands and many places in the US.

I've been interested photography for many years just taking snapshots, but after joining the IRPC it opened my eyes to many other levels of creativity and expression.

I enjoy the challenges the club offers and have just begun to enter contest outside the club venue.

I volunteer at the Visiting Nurse Association thrift shop 1 day a week as well as manage the position of Treasurer of the Indian River Photo Club.
