Please join us for an evening of Visual Story Telling and a discussion of the techniques behind the images by freelance and portrait photographer, Herbert Law.

Minute Sixteen Photography: Visual Story Telling

"Life in Focus", it's more than just our motto. We want every portrait session we do to tell a story in a dynamic way.

Herbert Law combines his experience in journalism with his love for the natural beauty of Alaska to capture the intimacy of daily life and the spirit of the people. A Virginia native, Herbert Law has lived in Alaska for the last nine years. Working as a freelance photographer for the Juneau Empire and Ketchikan Daily News, and as an Emergency Scene Photographer for the Petersburg Volunteer Fire Department and Capital City Fire and Rescue, he has become known and respected for his sports photographs and his innate ability to capture motion. Herbert brings a fresh outlook and unique perspective to everything he captures on film.

"On top of a mountain, on water, in a helicopter hangar, in the middle of the night, indoors or out, we will make our own studio around us."

Naturally, this unique perspective carries over into his portraits. Herbert uses his instincts and the feel of the moment to attain something distinctive and thoroughly his own.

Herbert will do an informal portfolio presentation and discuss the techniques and thoughts behind his photographs. The session will focus primarily on sports photography and dynamic, storytelling portraiture in the great outdoors. However the discussion may go wherever the group would like it to go as well.

Q& A to follow.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 6 at the Gutierrez Photography Studio in Eagle River.
