Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Gene Tewksbury on Travel Photography for the Non-Professional
Photographic basics don’t change just because you’ve dragged your camera overseas and pointed it at a new culture. In our August 4th program, Gene Tewksbury will provide a presentation that moves away from the “how to use your camera” topics in order to focus on the unique aspects of the travel genre.
Travel photography tends to be fast moving, often chaotic with minimal control over subjects and lighting. Even when shooting for your own enjoyment, travel photography tends to be more editorial in nature. As such you may find yourself needing different tools and methods than you work with at home. This is why Gene will cover topics such as; finding unique imagery, dealing with cultural and authority issues, equipment options, problem solving, compositions that work and publishing your images. Gene’s “story behind the photo” style presentation will integrate these topics into an interesting lecture with real world applications.
Gene’s love of travel and adventure began early in life; his childhood home in Virginia, USA was named “Gypsy Hollow” to reflect his family’s wanderlust. His earliest memories are traveling for a year thru Central and South America with his parents via a VW microbus. Having discovered a talent with a camera, Gene established his photography businesses in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with a focus on tours and education; however, bills must be paid – so during “off seasons” he takes on commercial clients, mostly corporate events and product photography.
