2018 Seminar Announcement
Wednesday, November 29, 2017
The 2018 Seminar will be held at the Ethical Society on Saturday, March 10th 2018. The speaker is Karen Kasmauski who to date has produced 25 major stories for National Geographic. She leads photography workshops for them, teaches journalism and photography at prestigious universities, as well as going on assignments all over the world for clients. She has published two books, both of which have been nominated for a Pulitzer prize.
Karen shoots landscapes, nature, travel and photojournalism images, as well as fine art pictures. She will bring examples of all these and talk about why she shot them the way she did, and what she had to consider and do to get the picture she wanted. She will also talk about making a photograph of something which seems to be unattractive at first glance but which needs to be presented in such a way that viewers would notice it and spend time looking at it. New and experienced photographers will find plenty to think about and to learn after listening to her speak of her own experiences and challenges. She has covered earthquakes in Japan, been arrested in Africa, and exposed to radiation in Russia.
