I’m delighted to announce I’ll be giving my presentation “Photographing California; Two books, Two Approaches” at several upcoming venues here in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first event is next week, and the second is in mid-September.
In this presentation I discuss the shooting & production of my two latest books, Greetings from California, and the award-winning Photographing California, Vol. 1 – North. Each book was produced by two different publishers for a completely different set of readers. I outline and highlight the thought processes and choices regarding different editorial and commercial considerations each project required, and how those played into the role of researching subjects, locations, ideal shooting conditions, and editing images to eventually be included in the books. If you ever wanted to know some of the realities behind the making a book project long before it reaches the press, this will be a great presentation to attend. Afterwards, I will be happy to answer questions about images, gear, processing techniques, or the publication processes.
On Wednesday, August 28th, I’ll be speaking at a Meetup for The Bay Area Photography & Exploration Society, which will be held at the Sports Basement’s “Grotto Room” located at 1590 Bryant Street in San Francisco. The Meetup starts at 6:45pm. and seating is limited.
On Thursday, September 19th, I’m equally excited to give this same presentation for the Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area (PPGBA). The event will be held at the Grovesnor Best Western Hotel in South San Francisco, near the San Francisco Airport. Since this is a professional association, there is an admission fee for students (w/ ID) and non-members. However, with a room full of professional photographers, the presentation and for sure the follow-up questions will be slanted to have a greater emphasis on the professional & business aspects of shooting or doing book projects vs. gear, technique, & locations.
