Mike Shea will examine different ways of presenting photographs, covering an assortment of options attendees can take advantage of to display and share their work.


An on-and- off again photographer since the age of ten, Mike has been a member of the Nevada County Camera Club for the past 10 years. As a multifaceted photographer, Mike has won recognition in many different genres, from panoramic to fashion. Mike's full page photo of Kenny Neal was included in the April 2017 issue of Blue Music Magazine; his “Corn Lily” image was nominated in the still life category of the Black and White Spider Awards; he was juried into the Riverfront Art Gallery in Petaluma; and he has won numerous awards from Nevada County Camera Club including best of the month and year. Mike has been described as one of the “top blues chroniclers” by Guitar International Magazine, and his photographs of blues and jazz musicians have appeared on the pages of Blues Music Magazine, Blues Revue, Downbeat, Elmore, and in Debra DeSalvo's book, The Language of the Blues: From Alcorub to Zuzu.
In June, Mike was Artist of the Month at Nevada City Winery at the “Light of Day” exhibit, featuring studies of both natural and man-made subjects, with emphasis on color, form, and texture. You can check out Mike’s website, which features years of stunning images at
