keith hill

Keith has been a member of the club since 2008. He studied design and photography at Utah State University. (Yes, he used film!)  He began his digital photography efforts in 2004 with the purchase of a Canon D60. From there he has photographed a variety of subjects for both work and personal purposes. Today, he continues to experiment with a variety of subjects from portraits to landscapes and street photography to "altered reality" images.

He also maintains a blog about the inner workings of the club, titled the President's View, at http://presidentsview.wordpress.com

Vice President, Chief Technology Officer & Exhibits Director - Jeff Clay

After working as a chemist, information technology director, and project manager, Jeff has finally decided what he wants to be when he grows up: a photographer. Consequently he has started two photographic businesses: Clayhaus Photography which explores fine-art color and B&W landscapes, architecture, and travel photography. Whether you find him in the canyons of southern Utah, the streets of Manhattan, the epic ruins of SE Asia, or a medieval village in France (sipping a fine wine, no doubt), Jeff is the guy with three cameras around his neck and a tripod in hand.

Field Trips - Rick Cohen

Rick Cohen is a Southern California boy at heart, having spent half of his life there.  But he's grown to love the Wasatch Front over the last 30 years.  He is a retired computer programmer of 45 years.  Rick shoots landscapes, animals and sports with Nikon crop-sensor cameras.  When he isn't shooting or processing he is likely to be found on a tennis court.

Rick looks forward to organizing regular photo day trips and meeting many more club members.
