About the Photographers 

Bonnie McCaffery, a resident of Lords Valley has been a professional photographer for over 10 years. Her passion is photographing people including Headshots, Senior Photos, Portraits and most recently sports photography where she captures action photos of the local kids in sports. Her other passion is taking several photos to composite into a work of art like a Fantasy styled painting - only it's made of photos that she has taken.


Donna Redman is the founder of The Secret Genius Project, which is based on her background in behavioral science and research into creativity and self-expression.  The Secret Genius Project explores creativity and the connection between art, science and nature.  Her life-long interest in photography has been part of her journey in exploring these connections.  Her photography has been included in a variety of exhibits and publications.

Jeffrey Sidle has called Wayne and Pike Counties home since 1972. Always intrigued and fascinated by nature, he began teaching himself photography in 2007 after purchasing his first digital interchangeable lens camera. Jeff’s portfolio includes many local images, but his love of travel has added images from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, North Carolina and Florida to his photo library  His award-winning work focuses mainly on wildlife and nature which he enjoys sharing on social media:

Liz DiMenno, a Milford, PA resident says, “My camera has been my constant companion for most of my life. Beauty and inspiration can be found everywhere! I welcome the opportunity to share my photos, my passion with you!” You can see more of her work on her website:

Deborah Stevenson, a resident of Greeley, creates floral photographic artwork that highlights the hidden beauty of flowers and other botanicals.  Her inspiration comes from the flowers and plants in her own gardens as well as from other gardens that she visits throughout the United States. While her primary focus is on macro photography, she uses a variety of creative techniques to share her vision and tell the story of what she sees. Capturing what would otherwise go unnoticed so that people can experience nature’s artistry is her passion.  You can connect with her on social media at:

Marna Gersonde, “I have always taken photographs of nature which provides me great peace. It wasn’t until these past few years in retirement that I have been able to enjoy my passion for traveling, most importantly traveling to the ocean. The water draws me to it and there is no better feeling than a camera in my hand and my toes in the sand.”

The Pike Photography Club maintains a Facebook page: Pike Photography The Covid Pandemic forced the club to cease formal meetings; however, several get-togethers continued and a new temporary venue has been found and the group hopes that meetings will resume in the Fall of 2023.
