Ride Description:

 It isn’t everyday that you meet a practicing photographer qualified for the f/64 Group. Chuck Scheer is such a photographer. Digital photography has made it possible for nearly anyone to create a decent exposture. But what separates a snapshot from a stunning photograph? What is it that great photographer’s see and capture that most of us just long for? Join us for an evening of fun and learning as Chuck shares some of his tried and tested methods.

Chuck’s early years were spent fishing for rainbows on the Boise River, casting for panfish and Smallmouth bass, hunting ducks on the Snake River and chasing mule deer in the Owyhee Mountains. He pursued his interest in art and after graduating from Boise High School, Boise Junior College and the University of Idaho, he taught art and photography in the Boise Public Schools. Chuck’s training and education had been toward Fine Arts having been schooled in printmaking, drawing, watercolor and oil painting.
By chance in his final semester at the University of Idaho, he was fortunate to view an exhibit of photos by Howard Huff who was completing his Master’s project. Upon his return to Boise to teach, Chuck immediately enrolled in an evening class taught by Huff who was then on the faculty at Boise State College. Chuck enrolled in graduate classes for several summers at Utah State University which had an outstanding Masters of Photography program and continued in the public schools and taught as adjunct faculty at Boise State until 1974 when he accepted a position as photographer there. While on staff at Boise State, he taught painting, black and white photography and color photography as an adjunct faculty member. As the University grew, so did his obligations and he had to fore go teaching to fulfill his professional responsibilities.
In 2002, in advance of the digital photography revolution, he decided to retire from Boise State to pursue personal interests, dual sport riding among them.
