Be careful what you ask for! Being an adventure photographer puts you in some interesting situations, sometimes outrageous, sometimes humorous, and other times just plain miserable. Tom will discuss his latest work from photographing a wedding on the side of a cliff to shooting northern lights at 30 below in the high arctic. He will share some tips and tricks to get the shot no matter what happens in the field. And don’t miss how to meet the neighbors by hosing down models in your driveway from the roof!

In today's hustle and bustle, it's often easier and more convenient to get to your destination a little quicker. However, there are benefits to taking the back roads, the roads less traveled if you will, and your photography can benefit from these side roads. Kristen has spent the last two years traveling to those "must see" destinations in the west, and has discovered that sometimes the real journey began with the question, "where does that road go?" Pack your atlas, get your camera gear ready and your sense of adventure. We're going to put a little gravel in our travel!

This video is a group of photographs taken by Ken Beres, Burton Diephius and Ralph Phillips on trip to Taos, New Mexico. Most of the missions are very old and historic and not usually visited by tourists. Many date back to the 1700’s and are still used by decedents of the original Hispanic settlers from Spain. Our purpose is to show that a video can be produced on most present computers from old photographs locked in your hard drive and shown to friends as a movie. This one was made with iMovie from a Mac computer

Ralph Phillips
Friday, March 10th, 2017 4:00 PM - 4:15 PM

Have you ever seen photographs that have a rather painterly effect to them but are afraid of the word “paint” or “layer”? Perhaps you are liking the subject matter in your photograph but are wishing the background was not so busy with power lines, messy branches, litter, dull lighting or just speaking to you about that something’s-missing-here factor? A potentially artful piece is waiting for you and it’s right around the corner. Join me as I explore the world of Texture. With just a few simple steps on your computer in Photoshop, you will be surprised at the transformation your image will acquire. Soft & dreamy or bold & dramatic; it is whatever you want it to be. It’s time for your creativity to flow and I think you will be pleasantly surprised at what surges from your heart to your fingertips!

What are you rights as a photographer? Do you need a model or property release for a particular shoot? Do you know how to register your images to protect your copyright? If you don't know the answer to any of these questions, then this talk is perfect for you.

The talk will take the viewers through the stages of my life as a photographer. I will cover early beginnings and background info, my interest in fine art photography, freelance and teaching career, images of what I do every day as a news photographer and my travel imagery which will someday become a book. The talk will have some humor and be very visually interesting and informative.

Understanding how to create a technically perfect photograph is only part of the equation. Realizing your creative vision, understanding your subject and conveying that to your viewer is another skill entirely. Join Rachid Dahnoun as he breaks down several of his most recent assignments to help you better understand how to approach your photography from a creative perspective, successfully evoke emotion in your photographs and convey the story of your subject to the viewer.

*Shadows In The Grass* chronicles Larry’s encounters with the magnificent wild creatures of Tanzania’s national parks in 2013 and 2016. His artistic photographic style is richly infused with the imagination of a child raised in the 1960’s on the television adventure series *Wild Kingdom,* wild animal trading cards, and the art of Mary Baker, Walter Weber, Francis Lee Jacques, and Robert Bateman.

Having come full circle; we started shooting rodeos at our first Shooting the Fair in Winnemucca. From there it was boots and britches to high school rodeo. We will share the highlights, lowlights, and the tools of the trade as we have covered high school rodeo in Northern Nevada. These cowboys and cowgirls give it their all at every performance, and we are there to capture it all. Get out of the chutes, and into the arena of high school rodeo.

In the summer of 2015 Cindy hosted a film crew for the BBC while they were filming a segment featuring stacking hay in the Big Hole Valley in Montana.. “America’s Wild West” is a 3 part series featuring America’s Western mountains, coastlines and deserts. It will be released soon in the US. Stacking hay with the Beaverslide is a subject well known to Cindy, who has actually worked on the hay crews and published many resulting images. You will see her images of stacking hay in giant 20 ton stacks as well as the segment from the BBC.

We're amazingly fortunate to witness the natural wonders our world provides. It's our responsibility to bring back that story about the critters to share with others and influence our world. How do you find the critters, get them in the viewfinder and accomplish this? We're talk lenses and settings, biology, stories about failure and success. This is a quest I started forty years ago and that I'm still on. Come join me as I suck you into the magical and incredibly rewarding world of wildlife photography.

Oroville, California photographer Cindy Quigley has always been immersed in the colors and textures of living in the West. Every day has been an opportunity to experience a life of leather, wood, water and the landscape of ranching and raising a family where the Feather River flows down from the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Photography allows her to share with great clarity and detail the world she sees. Her special gift is in capturing the simplicities and complexities of things around her, that others may simply pass by.

Cindy Quigley
Saturday, March 11th, 2017 3:30 PM - 4:00 PM
