He is a teacher of photography at Simon Fraser University in BC, and  leads multi-day photo-workshops throughout Europe and North America. Rick‘s photography is informed from his background as a professional Architect and Urban Designer. His teachings reflect his knowledge of both the History of the 2-Dimensional Arts of Drawing and Painting along with the Science of Human Vision. Rick’s presentation is designed to appeal to all photographers regardless of their level of experience and expertise. NOTE: This virtual event is for members only.
Summer Photo Talk - Beyond the Rules with Elizabeth Nodwell (7:00 PM PDT)
Beyond "the Rules": Neither rules nor perfect technique make an exciting photograph. But what does? While perfect technical execution can make a photograph stunning, that in itself doesn’t make a great photo. And are there rules that need to be followed? If the photo doesn’t also have something else going for it, something that gives it a presence, makes it engaging or captures the imagination, we may pass over it quickly. Sometimes that something else is elusive, hard to pinpoint, but we usually know it when we see it.   I will be showing some of my photos in which I have sometimes consciously and sometimes serendipitously abandoned perfection in the search for an interesting photograph, and we will discuss what might make a great photo. Bio The joy of photography for me comes from seeing, experiencing and expressing the world around me. I always photograph spontaneously, rarely posing or setting up the subject. The resulting image itself can be a surprise - when it holds the moment that spoke to me, or when it has captured something even more.  I aim to tell a story, or to evoke a mood or feeling.   Evelyn has had several solo exhibits, as well as participated in joint exhibits, featuring work ranging from photojournalistic to abstract high key. She has had photos published, and has given numerous photography workshops and presentations.  Evelyn’s photographs have won awards, including a category first place in the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition: As an anthropologist and independent filmmaker, Evelyn has worked in British Columbia and India.  Based on her research in both places, she produced two television documentaries in collaboration with Knowledge Network.  website: This event is for members only.
