Here in my home town I am offering a special meet and greet that will take place at my house. There will be hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and a special slide show! I will also include a copy of one of my popular how-to books. The following day, we will rendezvous at the Frye Art Museum for the seminar. For those of you who attended the debut of this seminar at Kenmore Camera over a year ago, please be aware that it has been extensively updated.
Hop on this perennial favorite! I myself have decided to do just that and will co-lead this workshop with Gavriel Jecan, Yuri Choufour, and Libby Pfeiffer. We will explore this internationally recognized biosphere that is in our backyard–this is a wonderland where the scent of saltwater and fir hang in the air and the horizon sometimes seems to make the entire world appear to be shades of blue and green.
C4C17 is the 5th annual visual storytelling event put on by Blue Earth Alliance. They have brought together socially conscious businesses, non-profits, educators, public agencies and content creators for two days of inspiration, exploration, and partnership building. I will be presenting the opening keynote, “All in a Life’s Work: The Creative Process of Art Wolfe” on Friday, May 5th at 9:00 AM.
In this full-day seminar, you’ll learn that the beauty, emotion and versatility expressed through photography are matched only by the limits of your imagination. Using art history as a reference point, the seminar highlights common visual elements, from shape and space to texture and light, and shows you how to apply them to enhance your own compositions. You’ll explore innovative ways to translate conceptual ideas into creative results, learn how to spot the non-obvious, and uncover new ways to expand your visual imagination.
This is fast becoming my second most popular workshop. Situated at the mouth of the mighty Columbia River, Astoria is a fascinating and revitalizing port city with a history tied to the early territorial aspirations of the United States. My goal is work closely with each participant to truly transform and refine their skills while exploring the nature of creativity itself.
Nothing says I love you quite like an Art Wolfe gift certificate. Seriously, though, it is a thoughtful item for the art collectors, photography enthusiasts, and ambitious travelers in your circle of family and friends. We have multiple denominations to choose from.
Buy a gift certificate now through Cyber Monday and get a $5 store credit posted to your account on Tuesday. (Limit one credit per customer.) They can be redeemed for any retail item in the Art Wolfe Store including workshops.
I have been working with Amber Lotus for many many years. They are a great company to work with, and I thought I would share their mission:
Amber Lotus Publishing’s wall calendars are like a book that you read one page a month. This vehicle can be very valuable in promoting inspirational ideas because the messages, quotes and concepts are repeatedly transmitted throughout the month. These inspirations sink into the reader’s consciousness while they are engaged in something as prosaic as checking what is scheduled for the next day. Therefore, they are inserting the infinite into the finite realm of time. We are committed to supporting Environmental Awareness, Earth Stewardship and Mindful Living through the pages of these calendars.
We have always been concerned about the environment. We were one of the first calendar companies to use recycled paper and were an early member of Green America. We started our program of offsetting our tree usage and carbon footprint by planting trees and contributing funds to NativeEnergy. We continue that initial focus by using FSC certified paper and partnering with Trees for the Future. As of 2013, Amber Lotus Publishing has helped plant more than 330,000 trees and Trees for the Future has certified that we are now significantly carbon negative as a company.
You can purchase a copy of the 2014 Travels to the Edge calendar on my store.
