On Tuesday, November 9, 2010, at 6:30 pm the Crandon Public Library will be holding a meet and greet with nationally-known photographer Jeff Richter. Mr. Richter will tell stories, share photo tips and present information about the beautiful and elusive albino deer.
Capturing incredible shots of nature that many people will never see in their lifetimes, Jeff Richter shares with Crandon a small glimpse into a true hunt, a hunt for the rarely seen white deer. His book includes photos taken from all over Wisconsin in his many quests to find this incredibly rare creature, and an attempt to explain the natural phenomenon of albinism in Wisconsin forests.
Probably no one has spent as much time following these white “ghosts of the forest” as nationally-known photographer Jeff Richter. Richter has been privileged to hunt the deer with his camera on lands where they seem to have concentrated by some fluke of nature. Jeff has worked full-time as a professional photographer for over a decade. His work has appeared extensively in Wisconsin Trails magazine, and in The Nature Conservancy, Audubon, and other prestigious publications.
This slideshow presentation is sure to be both educational and entertaining. This book, along with his other titles Pure Superior and True North will be available for purchase and signing … just in time for the holidays! Please call the Crandon Public Library at 478-3784 with any questions.
