In this lecture renowned photographer Sam Abell answers the question, 'What makes a lasting photograph?' In compelling slide-by-slide sequences Sam shows how many of his world famous photographs were made. This is not a 'greatest hits' slide show but a hands on, step-by-step demonstration of how--through simplified technique and critical vision--lasting photographs are made.

The talk will address seeing your final photographs as you shoot. Keeping in mind the viewers who will see your final photograph, you will be thinking about framing and fundamentals, setting your camera to the prevailing conditions- ISO, speed, etc. - so that you may concentrate on making the final image. The better the original image the less time is required in post production. There will be a slide show that will illustrate most of these points. I will also discuss the responsibility that comes with being a photographer. And elements of my former talk, 'Shooting Digital With a Film Mindset' -- instead of shooting far too many images because you know that they can be deleted, to help you shoot those images that you want to keep.

"For those who associate Art Wolfe solely with nature photography, be prepared for a startling revelation. Drawing from 36 years of international travel, Art will delve into a vast range of subjects; from discovering the subject to elements of design and even new works. Imagery of nature, wildlife, and the world's varied landscapes will round out the curriculum to provide the most comprehensive and imaginative class available. Utilizing his formal training as a teacher, Art dissects visual images, exploring what makes a compelling and emotionally engaging photograph. Attendees will come away with inspiration and tangible ideas for moving their photography forward. About the Photographer: Art Wolfe is one of the most internationally acclaimed and highly published nature photographers of our time. Over the course of his 30-year career, Art Wolfe has worked on every continent and in hundreds of locations. His stunning images interpret and record the world's fast disappearing wildlife, landscapes and native cultures, and are a lasting inspiration to those who seek to preserve them all. Wolfe's photographs are recognized throughout the world for their mastery of color, composition and perspective. In 1978 he published his first book, Indian Baskets of the Northwest Coast ,with the late Dr. Allan Lobb, a close friend and mentor, who also gave Wolfe a start by putting the young photographer's work into patients' rooms at Swedish Medical Center. Wolfe was soon photographing for the world's top magazines such as National Geographic, Smithsonian, Audubon, GEO, and Terre Sauvage. Wolfe has taken an estimated one million images in his lifetime and has released over sixty books. In May 2007 Art made his public television debut with the high definition series "Travels to the Edge with Art Wolfe." He currently spends nearly nine months a year traveling. Wolfe is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and serves on the advisory boards for the Wildlife Conservation Society, Nature's Best Foundation, Bridges to Understanding, and is a Fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. Wolfe maintains his gallery, stock agency, production company, and digital photography school in Seattle's Pioneer Square district. It is in the wild places, where the edge of the earth meets the corners of the sky, the human spirit is fed. —Art Wolfe"
