Art book publisher extraordinaire (Johsel Namkung – A Retrospective) and photographer Dick Busher is having a small show of his personal images at the Sand Point Grill in Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood. The prints will be on display during August and September.

This will be his first show of personal work in many years, a “coming out again” event, so to speak, now that he is retired from the world of commercial photography.

The images are nature/landscape in genre, mostly close ups. The sizes range from 20 x 16 to 44 x 55 inches. Digital inkjet prints made from scans of 4 x 5 inch color transparencies.

The Sand Point Grill is a wonderful restaurant. The Bartlesons are the owners/chefs. He does the entrees, and she does the deserts. They also have a full bar. Hours are 5 – 10pm, Monday to Sunday. The food is fantastic. The address is 5412 Sand Point Way NE, about a mile NE from Children’s Hospital.

Palouse Workshop

It’s August and I am teaching workshops! The Palouse is another terrific place for photographers in Washington State. The wheat fields are iconic for this region, sculpted from silt dunes that were deposited during the last ice age.

My next Palouse workshop will be July 17-19, 2015

David Slater and the Monkey “Selfie”

David Slater is currently embroiled in an argument with Wikimedia over the now famous ‘monkey selfie’ images.

Like other conservation photographers at the iLCP, I support David Slater’s copyright to the now famous ‘selfies’ of the critically endangered crested black macaque.

Read the iLCP press release and learn more about David Slater & help support Sulawesi Crested Macaque Conservation.

Photos from Oregon Coast Workshop

The field workshop I lead on the Oregon coast is always one of the most relaxing. The locations are gorgeous–Cannon Beach, Cape Meares, Astoria, and the Columbia River. There is always something new to see!

The next one is scheduled for July 10-12, 2015.

On Location: Katmai National Park

This past week I was in Katmai National Park photographing brown bears with filmmaker Abraham Joffe. The bears were wonderful, cooperative models for us & I can’t wait to see the resulting TV special.

New Human Canvas Shoot

©Gavriel Jecan

I was very excited to get back in the studio for the first time in two years to continue my exploration of the Human Canvas project–this time with a Leica. It germinated in my mind over 20 years ago and I’m not nearly through with it yet. Abraham Joffe and his crew were in from Australia to film the day’s work as well,which was long, tiring and wonderful.
