We are pleased to present Art Wolfe as our guest blogger!
Greetings to my friends, fellow photographers and nature lovers!
I’m very much looking forward to traveling to Manassas in the beginning of November to teach my highly praised Art of Composition seminar and deliver my keynote presentation Between Heaven and Earth at this year’s Nature Visions Expo. I always love coming to the Mid-Atlantic that time of the year and enjoying the late fall colors.
On the Friday, November 11th, I will be teaching my Art of Composition photography seminar at the same place the Expo will be held – the Hylton Perfoming Arts Center. In this seminar I will draw from some 36 years of international travel and will delve into a vast range of subjects; from discovering the subject to elements of design and even new works such as time lapses. Imagery of nature, wildlife and the world’s varied landscapes will round out the curriculum to provide the most comprehensive and imaginative class available. In short, I will teach you a new way to see your photos. This seminar will be highly beneficial to the photographer of any skill level with any level of digital camera.
The following day I have the opportunity to deliver the keynote presentation entitled Between Heaven and Earth. I have worked my best to create a highly stimulating multimedia presentation that will hopefully leave you inspired about the world and about the photographic art. This presentation centers on the Himalaya region of China, India, Nepal and Bhutan and reflects my most personal statement to date. Between Heaven and Earth is a 90-minute grand adventure tracing my formative years and development as an artist. These locations triggered my imagination and wonder and pointed me on the path of blending my creativity and artistic vision with photography while documenting the wild world.
I look forward to seeing you in my seminar and at the Nature Visions Expo!
