“Seeing Your Angel”

Award-winning photographer and former Escondido mayor, Ernie Cowan, speaks about desert photography.

Ernie Cowan began his love affair with the desert as a young reporter for the Evening Tribune, covering Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. He's captured thousands of images of the desert's unique beauty, which have been used in state park brochures, greeting cards, and numerous publications including Desert Magazine, Western Outdoor News, and the North County Times. As a resident of Escondido, Cowan got involved in local politics and was elected to the City Council and served as Mayor. But he never lost touch with the desert and continued his photographic journey.

In the release of the new edition of Anza-Borrego: A Photographic Journey, Cowan captures the essence of this California state park through stunning images that impress the viewer with the sheer scope of size, moods, and seasonal variations found within Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. This is an arm-chair adventure into one of the nation’s finest desert parks that leaves one wanting more.

Monthly Presenters
Each meeting, we have a presenter who is a leader in the photographic community. Our presenters cover virtually all aspects of photography, from landscape, to studio, to wildlife and nature, to lighting; you name it.
After a short break, our Club then does MemberShare. This is where anybody can share up to 10 - 12 images with the rest of the audience. All you need is your properly formatted photos put on a flash/thumb drive. We look forward to seeing your work.

Please read and be sure to follow these directions carefully so your images are named and sized correctly. Thank you!

- Resize images to 1024 x 768 (pixels) at 72 dpi
- Please have your initials at the begining of the filname so that all of your images stay together.
eg: Sam_01.jpg, Sam_02.jpg, Sam_03.jpg etc.
- Please try and limit to 10-12 images (I know it's hard).
