Go Here 1/6-1/13 | Go Here | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

With the holidays behind us, ample snow in the mountains, and perhaps a new (or even old) camera in hand, there are a few upcoming seminars and lectures that may enhance your outdoor photographic skills. And, the winter skies also present an excellent opportunity to gaze at the sun, moon, and stars.

Stargazing in Sunriver

Depending on weather conditions, the Oregon Observatory at Sunriver will offer two sessions for stargazers during the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend. On Saturday, Jan. 16, there will be a solar viewing from 11 am to 2 pm and an evening viewing from 8 to 10 pm. Admission to the daytime solar viewing is free. Evening session: $8 for adults and $6 for children. The Oregon Observatory has the largest collection of telescopes for public use in the United States. For more information, check their website at oregonobservatory.org.

Next Level GoPro

REI is offering an evening GoPro Editing Seminar on Jan. 19 at 5:30 pm at its store in the Old Mill. GoPro has recently revamped its editing software, and GoPro experts will guide you through the editing process and share techniques to improve your videos. You are invited to bring your laptop with GoPro Studio and video files to edit. There is a $20 fee for REI members and a $40 fee for non-members.

National Geographic Expertise

The Cascade Center of Photography offers numerous opportunities to fine-tune your outdoor photography skills including worldwide excursions with professional photographers offering their expertise. There are also Central Oregon outings available, half-day and full-day outdoor classes, and online courses.

On Jan. 22, from 6 to 8 pm, The Cascade Center of Photography is offering a free evening session featuring Bend resident and National Geographic photographer Jonathan Kingston, who will share his insights and highlight some of his most popular works. Kingston attended the Brooks Institute School of Photography in Santa Barbara, he has taught in India, and he is currently one of 17 photographers represented in the National Geographic Fine Art Galleries. Reservations are not necessary for this event, but seating is limited. For more information, call CCOP at 541-241-2266 or visit them online at ccophoto.com/jonathan-kingston-free-presentation.
