National acclaimed nature photography Bill Lea will be presenting “Winter magic in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone” to the Photography Club of Beaufort on Monday, Nov. 13,h in the Technical College of the Lowcountry in the Auditorium.

Photographing wildlife, wildflowers, landscapes and a variety of other natural subjects from the Canadian Rockies to South Florida has long been a passion for Lea.  

He may be best known for his portrayal of black bears, the Great Smoky Mountains and the Florida Everglades.  

Photographing black bears for more than two decades has provided Lea with extraordinary opportunities to learn about bears. For nearly 20 years he has been presenting educational programs throughout western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee in an effort to dispel the many myths and un-truths about bears.  

He has appeared on Dateline NBC, National Public Radio, Midwest Outdoors, Animal Planet, local radio stations, news stations and a variety of other programs. 

The Photography Club of Beaufort meets the second Monday each month at 7 p.m. at the Technical College of the Lowcountry, 921 Ribaut Road.

The meeting is free and the public is invited to attend.
