Nature Night

Chair: Virginia Hayes

Judge: Allen Bargen

I am a lifelong proponent of the belief that to succeed in life, one needs to dedicate a fair portion of it in service to your community and country. We all have personal interests, where we find the greatest opportunities to give back. This is certainly true of photography.

A large part of my professional life is dedicated to the art of photography, and therefore to the agencies, clubs and people who involve themselves with it. On the national and international level, I have devoted countless hours to the support and growth of CAPA, the Canadian Association for Photographic Art. It is my privilege to have worked on the National executive where I served as President of the Association.

It is my pleasure to be deeply involved with ongoing training and education in CAPA, and have written and present several different lectures, courses and educational topics across Canada to support CAPA’s goals. I have been awarded their highest honours, FCAPA and Hon FCAPA for service and photographic achievement. I am a CAPA Certified Judge (CCJ), a Canon CPS photographer and an Honorary Life Member of Lions Gate Camera Club.

My photography is mainly about the natural world and my ongoing travels have taken me to many exotic locations in the world. I am frequently invited to lecture on photographic topics locally and abroad.

While Nature occupies most of my attention, I am also very much involved in Sport Photography and People. You can see samples of these principle areas of my work here, www.allenbargen.com, or follow me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/AllenBargen.
