Our second of four image critique sessions will be on FaceBook Live on 7 October 2021 and will be led by Greg Holden.
Greg Holden is a photographer from Longmont, Co who uses his photography to share with others how he sees the world. He enjoys creative photos of little scenes often overlooked by others rather than postcard landscapes. Although he won’t pass by a chance to photograph a beautiful landscape or a tranquil sunset, he’d rather be exploring abandoned places and capturing the details of the layers of paint and rust on a discarded automobile. He finds inspiration from master photographers and a wide range of subjects, such as: the close-up beach studies by Minor White, the early portraiture of Steichen and Stieglitz, and street scenes by Andre Kertesz. He enjoys teaching others and sharing his passion for photography and continues to speak and judge, virtually, at clubs throughout the MD and VA areas. You can see Greg’s work on his website imagesunderfoot.com
Fun Facts about Greg for club introduction:
- Greg moved to Denver, CO in Jan 2019 and works as an Aerospace Engineer at Ball Aerospace (the same company as the Ball jar and canning corporation)
- Before moving to Colorado, Greg was active in camera clubs in MD, taught at Capital Photography in DC and was a regular judge and speaker at clubs throughout MD and VA.
- Greg has over 100 books on and about photography, but less than 10% of them are about camera instruction. Most are portfolios of well-known photographers from the early to mid 1900s, such as: Alfred Stieglitz, Minor White, Eliot Porter, Man Ray and MD native A. Aubrey Bodine
- I enjoy searching used bookstores for photo collections by lesser-known photographers such as Joseph Sudek (Czechoslovakia), Harry Callahan and Paul Caponigro.
- Greg’s favorite contemporary photographer is David duChemin
- Greg is president of his camera club in Colorado, the St. Vrain Photographic Society https://go-svps.com/
- Greg prefers to create interesting photos that make you think, rather than “pretty pictures”
- Greg has been a serious photographer for over 14 years since my wife bought me my first DSLR for Christmas, a Nikon D50. Within a year, I was already talking about upgrading my camera!
- Greg now has 3 tripods, 3 camera bodies, 11 lenses, 5 camera bags, 2 carbon fiber tripods and a drawer full of accessories I just “really needed” once upon a time.
- Other than my light painting composites, I don’t use Photoshop for my editing. I currently use Lightroom with On One and DxO’s Nik Collection plug-ins.
