Please Buy Your Ticket in Advance!!!  :D


Conservation Photography Workshop
Making Images with Intention

Gary Sharlow
Photographer & Education Manager

Sunday, May 12th 1:00-4:00 pm
In this classroom-based workshop, we will explore a variety of techniques for telling a story through the use of digital images. The beauty of the digital era of photography presents itself in the enormous opportunities for creativity in photographing the subject matter of your choice. As nature photographers, we are surrounded by the beauty of wildlife and colorful landscapes painted by the brush of the natural world. Join us in this workshop to take a look at some of the tools and techniques available today that can be used to express your vision of the natural world with your personal artistic spin. We’ll look at techniques and tools that cover such things as high dynamic range (HDR), double exposures, multiple exposures, time lapse, multimedia expression and unique perspectives in the field. We will also look at how you can tell your story through a short portfolio of images as well as look at various techniques for integrating still images into a multimedia format for a more visually dynamic delivery of the story you wish to tell. Images can be powerful tools for conservation of the natural world.

Please Note:We will meet at the Business Reception Desk at the backdoor of the Academy at 12:45pm.

Reservations: Members: $40, General: $50 Space is limited. To reserve a place today, buy a ticket online or over the phone at[masked]

    Loved it! I attended the same type of class a year or so ago and it met my expectations again! Did you read that Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline today?

    This workshop covered a vast array of topics concerning making images with intention as well as conservation photography. I thought Gary did an excellent job conveying his passion around this subject, sharing ideas, and demonstrating what it takes to get going. I went to the workshop hoping to find creative uses for my photos and left with so much more. Not only did I gain knowledge of types of tools and techniques, I found a new community of conservation photographers. It was well worth my time!

    This was a wonderful meetup and I learned a lot. It should really help me as I move forward on my eBook project for Hidden Villa.
