Don johnson presents flower photography (7:30 PM EDT)
Don Johnson has been a serious amateur photographer since the mid-1980s. He first learned the basic elements of photographic design, composition, and equipment taking a photography course while in college. After graduation in 1971, Don pursued other important activities such as career building and raising a family, but he always maintained an avid interest in photography. In the mid-1980’s, Don returned to his hobby of photography on a more serious basis. His wife reignited his interest in the activity after giving him a new camera one year for the holidays. Much to her chagrin, this stimulated further photography equipment purchases, but also helped Don produce much better images. Over the years, Don has had a number of his photographs published. He has been published in Natures Best, Popular Photography, Photoshop Elements Techniques, AOPA Pilot magazine, Ballooning: The Journal of the Balloon Federation of America, Zooger, and Hallowed Ground, the magazine for the Civil War Trust (now the American Battlefield Trust), among others. He has also been published in books and calendars and has been displayed in many galleries, including the Smithsonian Institution in DC. Don likes to photograph zoo animals, flowers, and almost anything that “catches his eye.” Don is a former President of the Frederick Camera Clique, a photography club located in Frederick Maryland, former President of the Gaithersburg Camera Club, located in Gaithersburg, Maryland, as well as a member of the National Zoo FONZ Photo Club. Don uses Nikon equipment and is currently exploring the world of digital photography with a Nikon D610 digital camera. Don is retired and lives in Gaithersburg Maryland with his wife. He has three grown children and five grandchildren.
