2015 April 19: Beyond the Lens: A Photographer’s Journey

Keynote Speaker Bruce Dale

April 19, 2015 (Sunday)

8:30am-4:30pm
Rosborough Cultural Arts Center
Asbury Methodist Village
Gaithersburg, Maryland

The North Bethesda Camera Club (NBCC) celebrates its 50th birthday in 2015. You are cordially invited to join us on Sunday, April 19, for a full-day celebration of the past, present, and future of photography. This program, called “Through the Lens: A Photographer’s Journey,” will feature Bruce Dale, an award-winning National Geographic Photographer, as the keynote speaker. The program will also include a panel discussion on challenges to photographic creativity, with input from not only Bruce but also Elizabeth Krist (chief photo editor at the National Geographic) and others. Major sponsors of the event at this point include Mac Business Systems, Nikon, Epson, Ace Photo, and Fuji.

Our keynote speaker will be renowned National Geographic photographer Bruce Dale, who will take us behind the lens and share the stories behind capturing some of the magazine’s most stunning cover images. Bruce’s pioneering work has distinguished him as one of the leading photographers of our time. One of the first western photographers to visit China, he has since returned at least a dozen times and worked in over 80 other countries.

For 30 years, Bruce worked exclusively for National Geographic. His vision and creativity twice earned him the title Magazine Photographer of the Year as well as White House Photographer of the Year. In addition to many other awards, one of his photographs now journeys beyond the solar system on board NASA’s Voyager Spacecraft, as testimony about planet Earth. Another was selected to grace a U.S. postage stamp.

Besides the sheer glorious beauty he captures, Bruce Dale’s adaptation of technology to highly complex composition challenges has always stretched the boundaries of the field. Dale was the man behind the lens of National Geographic’s famous centennial issue in 1988 featuring a hologram of planet earth. His cover photo showing the perspective of a jumbo jet from a tail-mounted pair of cameras was recently named one of National Geographic’s “50 Greatest Photographs.”

Bruce Dale’s presentation will feature fantastic photographs and engaging, inspiring stories. A Q&A period will follow. The day will also feature a panel discussion about the future of photography. A complete agenda will be posted prior to the event.

Tickets for this special event are $35, and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Ticket price includes your seat for the presentations; food (morning coffee and pastries, snack breaks, and lunch); access to the vendor hall; and a chance to win exciting door prizes.

2014 Nov. 8: Editorial beauty and retouching workshop

Ryan

Saturday, November 8th from 5-8pm

Seeing as our field trip to Steamtown has been cancelled I thought I’d offer an alternative. A good model-friend of mine is going to be in the Baltimore area next weekend. Would anyone be interested in a ~3 hour workshop on editorial beauty photography and post-production/retouching? I’ll bring in a hair stylist and makeup artist to do an editorial fashion look and spend about 90 minutes teaching posing and lighting. Everyone will have an opportunity to shoot the looks we create. We will then import the images into the computer and cover post-production and retouching in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Cost will be in the neighborhood of $40-70, enough to cover the cost of hair, makeup, and the model. I’d like to keep the size down to 6-10 people, so the more who sign up the cheaper it’ll be. Let me know if you’re interested.

I’ve included a pic of the model, Ryan, in a shameless attempt to sway your decision in my favor 🙂 If interested email president@arundelcameraclub.org
