An Evening With Robert Holmes (6/20/13)

Mountains of Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile

When: Thursday, June 20th, 6:00pm-9:00pm

Where: Seawood Photo

Price: $49.00

Bob Holmes has been a professional photographer for over 30 years.

Ansel Adams invited him to California in 1977 and he moved here to live in Marin in 1979.   His first major assignment in 1980 was to Northern Pakistan for National Geographic magazine and he has since traveled the world on assignment for dozens of magazines and to illustrate over 50 books.

The Society of American Travel Writers has given him their Travel Photographer of the Year award three times.

Over his 30+ year career he has learned not just to look but to see.  In this presentation Bob will share his methods that he considers fundamental to becoming a better photographer whether you use an iPhone or $5,000 DSLR.

Without light there would be no photographs.  Bob will illustrate how to look at light and harness it to make prize-winning images.  He is a “natural light” photographer but uses flash when necessary and he will show you how to modify light without it looking artificial.

This will be Seawood’s third presentation with Bob and is always a favorite. This event always sells out quickly, so make your reservation today! This presentation will transform your photography.  It will be educational, funny, entertaining and most of all, inspiring.

Classic Camera Corner

Digital cameras are amazing, yet we love old cameras here at Seawood! 

This section of our world is dedicated to those machines, how they work, what you can do with them, and why they are still viable tools despite technological advances in digital photography.

Hope you enjoy it!
