Snowy Owls III

<!–<!–
BLOG: Snowy Owls Feb 2012 – Images by Art Wolfe

I just finished my weekend workshop called “Composing Effective Images – Field Edition”. I love teaching and inspiring others. In the process of the workshop, I get inspired, too.

I just had to make one more trek up to the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in British Columbia yesterday.
I know I am indulging a bit with the Snowy Owls, but in all fairness, they are magnificent creatures and this event happens so infrequently, that I just can’t resist.

Thank you to all the students this weekend for your participation, enthusiasm and inspiration. Enjoy this days shooting.

Listen to what people are saying about Art’s seminars and workshops:

I have pursued photography for over 51 years and finally feel someone has shared insights into composition and the mental portion of photography that have eluded me for these many years. My camera has not left my hand since I awoke at our mountain cabin this morning. I am as energized as I was when I received my first camera and loaded my first roll of 620 film.
I cannot thank Art enough for sharing that cloudy day in Atlanta.

~Bob Goodyear

Although Wolfe is known mainly for his landscape, nature and wildlife photography, this workshop was about the Art of Composition, and applies to virtually all photographic subjects.
Without hesitation it was the best photography workshop I have ever attended. By best I mean he combines the finest qualities of artist, photographer and teacher (including the ability to entertain), which is a rare combination today.

~Laurie Naiman

It starts with a Bang! Welcome Reception at Art’s House on May 27th – 6pm to 8pm. Light appetizers & hors d’oeuvres. Then two days with Art fine tuning your vision.

Just listen to participant Carol Ann Morris if you need help making up your mind about this workshop:

I attended Art’s Composing Effective Images workshop in Seattle in January…it was just what I needed. If you’re thinking of doing it, just do it! His enthusiasm and passion for his art is so inspiring; the momentum he creates when he teaches pushes you to new heights. It is SO worth it. Right after the seminar, I signed up for his workshop on the Olympic Peninsula.
