A Fotoseptimbre event: Robert Michaelson – Every time I put on my boots and grab my photography gear to head out into the woods with my dogs I enter a world of enchantment. I am intrigued by parts of the world untouched by humans just yet, filled with unimaginable colors and shapes, often undetected by the naked eye. I am transported to another realm of existence; I am a passive observer mesmerized by an utterly foreign universe going about its daily chores. I use photography as a means to document the world around me and share it with others. I admire every little detail of the smallest creature and am trying to highlight it in my pictures. I want people to be aware and appreciate the astonishing variety of life in the environments around us. My goal is to unconsciously arouse an emotional response to the unseen and unknown and try to convey the uncommon in the common. I want to share these images and introduce the people of San Antonio to this beautiful world we live in.
Jim Sparkman – My journey into underwater photography was first fueled by my desire to share the awe inspiring sights of our undersea world to non-diving friends and other divers. This evolved into a continuing quest to learn and explore underwater photography and is my greatest passion as I travel and dive around the world. I get to see many wonderful things in our underwater world along with a vast array of unique and varied sea creatures. In my travels I explore pristine reef systems with many varieties of beautiful hard and soft corals. I truly enjoy the sport of scuba diving, teaching scuba diving, and being underwater. There are still many places I want to see and photograph. Through my photography I try to capture the beauty of life underwater so people develop a higher concern for how we use and protect the seas of our colorful world.
This events will be similar to the last art opening. Come early for good parking. We do plan for food trucks and live Music. Let's plan to meet on the area left of the building (when facing it). That's closer to suite 102.
