Jeff Bergeson got involved in the Mountaineers when he decided that he was going to be a landscape photographer. He wanted to find like-minded people. He gets outside and takes photos to escape from daily life for a while. He works hard to get awesome shots just right.

Jeff's favorite memory from The Mountaineers Seattle Photography Committee is from 2011, when he went on a field trip to Glacier National Park. He really enjoyed all the comradery, making it a really great trip!

On the technical side, all things about equal, Jeff's strength is his patience in waiting for a shot to develop. Whether it's lighting or something else important for the shot. He's definitely not a "pray and spray" shooter!

While Jeff is more of a follower, he did lead photography trips in the past under the leadership of a former chair, Sunny Walker.

Attend our monthly potluck, which is the third Wednesday of each month. We socialize and share food, then we have announcements and show photos of what we have seen during the past month or year.
