Join us for the presentation with John L. Goldberg of John Goldberg Photography for an inspiring talk and slide show about photographing one of the last herds of wild mustangs in California, the mustangs of Montgomery Pass.
For many of us, the wild mustangs represent freedom and the Old West. Imagine seeing them run like the wind in the open range. Imagine watching the newborn foals stand for the first time and following their mothers as the herd roams. Imagine witnessing the stallions defending their herds. Imagine being able to capture all of this in your own images.
This will be a rare opportunity to learn how to photograph wild prey animals in their natural environment. You will learn some of John’s techniques for finding these animals, approaching them, setting up your image and creating it. We will also discuss lighting, weather and working on both private and public property
About John L. Golberg:
John Goldberg has captured the incredible beauty of our environment in his images for more than thirty years. His photographs showcase our deserts, mountains, forests and coastlines along with the plants, insects and animals that inhabit them. In recent years, he has included the California coastal urban environment in his work.
John has a deep love of the outdoors that he expresses in his imagery. His favorite areas to photograph are in the backcountry of the west and southwest, particularly the Mono Lake region of eastern California, the Sierra Nevada and the deserts of the Great Basin and the American southwest.
John’s objective is to provide people with a different view of the world around them. He hopes his photographs will influence people to gain a better appreciation and understanding of their natural environment by seeing it through his camera.
John was formerly a long-time volunteer with the California State Parks in Santa Cruz, CA, an instructor for the California State Parks PORTS distance learning program and currently leads workshops on a variety of topics. Additionally, he recently completed a three-year project photographing wild mustangs in eastern California and western Nevada.
Newspapers, magazines, non-profit organizations and corporations have published John's imagery. His work has also been exhibited in multiple galleries and shows. John’s photographs of monarch butterflies have been used as the basis of a television show about the monarchs and he has donated many images of them to Natural Bridges State Beach for use in interpretive talks for visitors.
