Meet One of Our Judges - Brian O'Keefe
Photograher Brian O’Keefe who is offering a Complimentary Photography Seminar to all participants of our Women’s Fly Fishing Photography Contest.
In his words, “I have combined a lifetime of fly fishing photography with a lot of serious fly fishing. I published my first fly fishing photo when I was 16. That was 52 years ago! In that time, I have been very busy trying to fish and photograph as many interesting places as possible. My angling travels have taken me to distant destinations like Cuba, Tonga, Bikini Atoll, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Kashmir, England, Brazil, Nicaragua and many more.
As much as I enjoy trips to the Bahamas, Belize, the Yucatan, etc, I am just as much a home water fisherman. I moved to Bend, Oregon in 1975 and guided on the Deschutes, North Umpqua and Klamath in California through the late 70’s. I have been fortunate to live on steelhead rivers, bass lakes, plus trout streams like the Metolius River. Currently, I live in Eastern Idaho, near the South Fork of the Snake River, the Teton River and the Henry’s Fork. Fly fishing is a great lifestyle! I have enjoyed a good working relationship with many fly fishing magazines, newspapers and tackle catalogs, books, websites and seven years as co-owner of Catch Magazine. I have a website at www.brianokeefephotography.com. I look forward to seeing everyone’s photos.
