For our readers in Israel, I will be teaching a class on landscape photography next Thursday, May 4th at Galitz School of Photography at 6:30 PM. It will be a free event that is open to everyone, so if you would like to participate, please make sure to sign up right here. The auditorium has limited space, so I encourage to sign up sooner than later! In this lecture, I will be going over light, framing and composition, so the material is a bit more advanced. However, I will do my best to keep everything as simple as possible, so that photographers of all levels can benefit from the presented material. In addition to the lecture, I will also be doing a photo walk the following day on Friday, on May 5th to meet our readers from Israel and have a chance to take pictures and dine at a local restaurant after the walk. It is also a free event, so everyone is welcome to come and join us!
I am a nature photographer. The implication being that the bulk of my work concentrates on documenting and working with the natural world around me. Now one can make the claim that human beings are very much a natural part of the environment. But over time, our uniqueness as a species and our unique way of life has created a strong distinction between ourselves and the natural world which we inhabit (and so often destroy in the process). My work as a professional photographer means that I usually find myself far from civilization and in rather remote locations, working with subjects that are either natural landscapes or wildlife. Once in a while, I get the opportunity to visit places that are very much the embodiment of human society and history like the Mayan Pyramids in the Yucatan, ancient Greek cities in Greece, or Roman ruins in Turkey.
