Who doesn’t love to travel and bring home souvenir photographs from their adventures? But capturing not only the highlights, but the essence of a city can be a challenge at times. In this Workshop, we will go over how to capture the soul of a city in a photograph. We will define travel photography and what it means to you. We will review theory such as lighting, composition and decisive moments/gestures. We will go over different types of gear that you might consider taking on your next trip for photography. Camera settings will be briefly covered. Lastly, we will cover approaches on people, landscapes, cityscapes and street photography in a city. You will come away from this Workshop with a new perspective on what to look for when shooting photos on vacation or any sort of trip as well as tips on what minimal gear is necessary to capture those photographs. Point and Shoot and Camera Phone users are welcome!
About the Presenter:
Clifford Pickett is professional commercial photographer, event photographer and educator based in NYC. He first picked up a camera while spending a year traveling through Europe after having earned his MBA early. Like many travelers, that passion for seeing and experiencing the world is precisely what ignited the spark for photography. Clifford has spent all of his time since learning how to see and capture the world with the fresh eyes that traveling affords. He hasn't been shooting for 40 years, he hasn't been alive for 40 years. He hasn't been classically trained in the fine arts either. He is entirely self taught, through books, workshops, seminars, DVD's and real life, it is this that perhaps may be his greatest asset, the ability to relate to the amateur photographer. Not having been so far removed, it is this understanding that allows him to help his students see through the cloud of misinformation and confusion and marketing spins to find real answers to questions from those who share the same passion for the world, and need to capture and share it, that he does. Leveraging both the business and photographic skills he has developed while managing a private testing laboratory, he recently is the owner of a photography company specializing in the construction industry and a commercial video production company. His corporate clients include Estée Lauder, Sephora and Clinique.
