Alex Kent, Director of Education for Bedford Camera and Video, will be speaking about traveling smart and safe while taking photos in the wilderness. Kent has followed his interests in nature and travel photography for the past 15+ years. Realizing that spending time outdoors and traveling to new places had inherent risks, he continued his education to become a more competent traveler. He is currently a Wilderness First Responder from the Wilderness Medical Institute, a Level IV Whitewater Canoe Instructor from the American Canoe Association, and a Master Educator for the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics. Kent has also studied and volunteered with the Arkansas Master Naturalists as well as the Ozark Tracker Society.
