For the first time, Wolfe presents the three subjects at the heart of his work—landscapes, wildlife, and cultures on the edge of extinction—in a single masterpiece that takes us through the world’s ecosystems and geographical regions in a vivid display of the fragility and interconnectivity of life on Earth, while simultaneously exploring his evolution as an artist and the techniques he uses to capture the nuances and rhythms of nature. 

To be released this fall, Wild Elephants and Human Canvas feature work inspired by conservation for both critically endangered wildlife and traditions of art in indigenous cultures. Wolfe weaves the story of these three intertwined themes into stunning focus.

From the days she thought she would be a doctor, to the day she became a Nikon Ambassador, Charmi Patel-Peña’s journey to making positive changes in the world was always personally questioned: "Am I really making a difference in the lives of other people? Am I making the world BETTER?" 

Discover what she’s known deep down all along: Creating with intention DOES change lives. Learn how to create value with your clients, influence social change, and provide hope for future photographers.

-----------------

Charmi Peña is not one of those photographers that was born with a camera in my hand. She came from a family where the acceptable career choices were: doctor, lawyer, investment banker… you get the idea. While medicine appealed to her for a long time, she double majored in economics and IT at Rutgers University just because… Then, she met the love of her life and her whole world changed. He gifted her with a camera to keep her busy while she figured out what the career should be. – A gift ended up changing the trajectory of her life.

The Art and Science of Black and White Photography

10:30am - 12pm

Thibault Roland - Sony Artisan                                                                                                                         ROOM 1E

Colors are an essential part of the world. The infinite shades of blues in the sky and the ocean, the delicate greens of vegetation in the Spring, the gold and reds of foliage in the Fall...

But what happens when these colors are removed? Suddenly we step away from reality and enter an unfamiliar world where patterns, geometrical shapes and contrasts emerge stronger. 

During this lecture, Sony Artisan of Imagery Thibault Roland will discuss Black and White Photography. How to create and use leading lines, textures and light in order to build dynamic and original photographs. He will illustrate how important it is to visualize and build an image even before pressing the shutter button, and how your overall photography work (including color) can benefit from the rigorous process of creating in B&W.

---------------

Thibault is originally from France and currently based in Portland OR, USA. He was trained in physics and worked as a researcher at Cornell and Harvard University, where he studied fundamental biological mechanisms using optics and microscopy.

At college, he became instantly fascinated by the theory of relativity, which is a domain of physics that predicts that time and distance are relative and entirely dependent on the location and conditions of observations, just like with photography. Another aspect of physics that always stuck with Thibault is the Observer's Effect. This term relates to the fact that in science, the simple act of making a measurement (or capturing photons in order to create a photograph) can in itself modify the state of the object of interest (or what was captured by the camera).

Adventure of Photography: Shooting Outdoor, Action and Travel with the Fujifilm X Series

10:30am - 12:00pm

Dan Bailey:  Fujifilm X Photographer                                                                                                                 ROOM 1F

After shooting with DLSR gear for over 20 years, Dan Bailey made the move to mirrorless and has transitioned to using Fujifilm X Series cameras exclusively in his work. Not only does mirrorless gear lighten your load in the outdoors, mirrorless cameras offer some distinct advantages over traditional DSLRs. In this presentation, Dan will show how you can use these advantages to expand your creative boundaries with photography and he’ll shed light on the specific gear and methods he uses in his own fast moving style of outdoor, adventure and travel photography. He’ll also present tips on light, lenses and composition so you can get the most from your camera, no matter what kind of gear you use.
