Charlotte CNPA May Meeting – Photographing Insects and other Arthropods

May 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Kefyn’s presentation provides a unique opportunity to learn more about insect and spider biology using images as a point of entry into the engrossing world of arthropods. It focuses on the intersection of art and science as exemplified by the task of making successful photographs of insects and other arthropods in the field. The aim is to share knowledge, techniques and skills that produce images that are rewarding works of art and pieces of scientific data that can be shared as citizen scientists online.

A portfolio of his images can be found at: www.hiddennatureimages.com

Kefyn M Catley is Professor Emeritus of Biology at Western Carolina University where he taught and conducted research in organismal evolutionary biology and science education. He holds a PhD in arthropod systematics from Cornell and was a research scientist at the American Museum of Natural History, New York, NY. Traveling extensively, he has studied spiders on four continents and held faculty positions at Rutgers and Vanderbilt universities. A naturalist, passionate photographer, and lifelong observer of the tiny creatures “that run the world”, Kefyn gives talks and workshops at photographic, gardening and natural history societies to increase awareness of the role of arthropods in the biosphere. His research has been published extensively in a wide range of scientific journals and his photographs have been exhibited in galleries, appeared in magazines, and online.
