Bill Ingalls – My Life as a NASA Contract Photographer

Bill has been a professional photographer for over three decades and has served as the Senior Contract Photographer for NASA Headquarters since 1989.  Bill holds two Bachelor of Art degrees in English and Visual Communications.

Bill has traveled the world photographing missions for NASA.  His assignments have taken him from familiar locations, such as the Kennedy Space Center, to the inside of an active volcano in Alaska; the Oval Office; the inside of a DC-8, flying through a hurricane; the hearing rooms of Capitol Hill, to the brutally cold Kazakh steppes.

Bill’s photographs have appeared on television and in hundreds of magazines, newspapers and books throughout the world, including National Geographic, Newsweek, TIME, The Washington Post, Fortune, People, The New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times.  Bill is recognized amongst his peers for capturing some of our country’s historic moments including the first launch of a US citizen on a Russian rocket, JFK, Jr’s last visit to the White House, and the burial at sea of Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Bill is only the second photographer ever to receive the prestigious National Space Club, Press Award. The award was first given to legendary broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow.

“Computational Photography”

by Shawn Baker

Shawn Baker is a local engineer, photographer, and CCB member. Shawn’s presentation will discuss how Artificial Intelligence is incorporated into our digital cameras… DSLRs, Mirrorless, and our Smart Phones. This will be a fascinating program discussing the earliest incorporation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into our cameras to the very sophisticated use of AI in our Smart Phones.

Travel Photography – What to Look for When You Travel

by Beth Reynolds

Beth Reynolds, Director of Photography for the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, is our April presenter.  Beth presented a beautiful program for CCB members early last year, and we just had to invite her back for a 2020 program.  She enthusiastically agreed to return.  This is great news for CCB members. The topic of Beth’s presentation is Travel Photography- What to Look for When you Travel.  This is an exceptional opportunity to learn what makes a notable travel portfolio. Beth leads a dynamic photography project every year entitled “One Day Tampa Bay” where 100 photographers document Tampa during a 24-hour period. She knows what makes a travel photo stand out above the others. Plan to attend the April program to find out how you can create remarkable travel images.
