Montreal Welcomes Art Wolfe May 22

BLOG: Between Heaven and Earth – Images by Art Wolfe

Photographe de renommée internationale et animateur de série télévisée, Art Wolfe sera à Montréal le 22 mai prochain pour présenter la conférence multimédia « Between Heaven and Earth ».

Organisée conjointement par Studio4Fun et les magazines Photo Life et Photo Solution, cette conférence sera présentée pour la première fois en sol québécois. Sa formule intime permettra aux spectateurs de vivre une expérience inégalée auprès de cette superstar de la photographie de nature!

Avec « Between Heaven and Earth », l’artiste présente le fruit de son aventure dans la région de l’Himalaya qui abrite les plus hautes montagnes du monde, une région littéralement entre ciel et terre. Cette série d’images constitue le travail le plus personnel que le photographe ait réalisé jusqu’à maintenant. La présentation retrace les années de formation de Wolfe et son développement en tant qu’artiste. Elle explore les régions himalayennes de l’Inde, de la Chine, du Népal et du Bhutan; autant de lieux qui ont stimulé l’imaginaire et l’émerveillement du photographe et l’ont conduit à documenter la nature sauvage de façon créative et sensible.

Une période d’échange avec le public suivra la présentation; une occasion unique d’en apprendre plus sur ce grand maître de la photographie de nature.

Les places sont limitées! Réservez la vôtre maintenant!
La conférence est présentée en anglais.

PODAS Palouse Workshop Just Announced!


In conjunction with Phase One Digital Artists Series (PODAS), Michael Reichmann and I will be leading a much-anticipated workshop to Washington’s Palouse region this summer. The Palouse is a remarkable agricultural area in eastern Washington, and one of my favorites places to photograph in my home state. The landscapes are varied, full of sagelands, wheatfields, empty roads, and deep horizons.

This is a rare opportunity as this is the only field workshop that Michael will be doing this year. And since it is a PODAS workshop, each participant will be provided with a IQ160 60 Megapixel back, a Phase One DF camera body, and a 75– 150mm lens. Other lenses from 28mm – 300mm will be available to participants as well.

You can learn more about the workshop and PODAS here:

Olympic Workshop Day 1

BLOG: Olympic Workshop April 2011 Day 1 – Images by Art Wolfe

Yesterday I arrived on the Olympic Peninsula to prepare for my workshop this weekend. Jay Goodrich, Gavriel Jecan, and I headed up to the top of Hurricane Ridge on a scouting mission to see if this would be a good location to bring students to in the coming days. I did find some remarkable subjects, but also found the deepest snowpack that I have ever seen in my 40 years of photographing in this region. There was a ton of rockfall, huge avalanche run-outs, and below freezing temperatures as we approached closer and closer to the summit. I decided that this wouldn’t be the greatest location to bring a group of 25, but was rewarded with a great photo session of a raven.

Today we will be heading to the Sol Duc and then tomorrow to the Hoh Rain Forest and the coast for sunset. More coming soon.

What a great way to celebrate Earth Day 2011!

Workshop participant:Michael Rainwater

Michael Rainwater just got back from China with Art. His reflections:

Over thirteen days, we travelled to some of the most spectacular scenery in southeastern China – from the Yellow Mountains (Huang Shan) to the rice terraces of Yuan Yang to the Li River, near Guilin. We all came back with images that we are very happy with. I, for one, am ready to go back again, especially to the Yellow Mountains. Though we were able to catch glimpses of rural life in the hill tribe communities, it is obvious that China is changing and modernizing much faster than any of us expected. The time is approaching when it will be difficult to find the “old” China at all. This has been a wonderful experience that was greatly enriched by the instruction and guidance we received from both Art and Jay. These guys are masters.
