Larry Dean Photographer of the Year Award – Color Print
This year the Gaithersburg Camera Club lost a valued member of our club, Larry Dean.
Larry was a very active member of the Gaithersburg Camera Club for many years. He served in multiple positions including President, Vice President, and Treasurer. He was known for his wonderful photographs which won many awards both within the club and in the wider community, such as the county fair.
Larry was an enthusiastic travel photographer, equally adept at making portraits of people encountered and grand landscapes. He was also known for his willingness to share his knowledge and help other photographers. His willingness to help others extended well beyond photography and the camera club. Larry was a family man and dedicated to helping his community.
Since Larry was so prolific in the print competition category with numerous wins, the Gaithersburg Camera Club Board of Directors voted to change the name of the Color Print – Photographer of the Year Award to the Larry Dean Photographer of the Year Award – Color Print.
