Firefighters Exhibit Opening April 10th

Written by on April 6, 2017

Press Release – Tina Dickey, a long-time Gillette Wyoming resident, studied under the teachings of Anita Nichols, a lifelong native of Sheridan Wyoming. Tina had an eye for photography before taking her classes, but learned so much about what a camera can do and the art she could create through the lens of a camera. Tina became the Campbell County Fire Department Photographer in 2003. She tells people that’s when she “legally” got to begin chasing around the fire trucks!

According to Tina, “I got to capture all of it on film, and I got to capture “Life” as it was happening. There were no actors, and every feeling that was being felt was something I got to witness and be humbled by.”

Caleb Munger is a third-generation volunteer fire fighter, as well as a seasonal fire fighter with the US Forest Service, majoring in photography at Black Hills State University. His body of work demonstrates the relationship firemen have with fire and showcases photos taken at several firefighter training sessions in Gillette and Newcastle.

View their incredible photos and read the stories of our courageous firefighters at the Campbell County Rockpile Museums exhibit opening of Firefighters: A Life of Dedication and Courage.
