The speaker for the month is Olivier Du Tre. As photographers, our art provides us with a very personal way of expressing ourselves. It lets us describe the way we see and feel our world around us. We refer to it as our 'vision', our 'style', or our 'voice'. I used to think it was defined by subject matter, variations in tonalities or our use of colour. But now I know, it runs much deeper than that.
If you ask yourself the question 'what should I photograph?' you are really asking the wrong question. The right question would be 'why do I photograph?'. In the answer to that question lie clues on how we can become a better artist.
In my talk I will tell you my story. How I approach the lulls in creativity. Why I chose black and white as my medium and why I went back to photographing on film.
Olivier Du Tre is a Belgian/Canadian landscape photographer based out of Cochrane, AB.
