Famed photographer Edward Weston said this about photographic composition: “Composition is the strongest way of seeing.” Ansel Adams, the most famous landscape photographer of all times said, “The so-called rules of photographic are, in my opinion, invalid, irrelevant, immaterial.” Rick Sammon says, “I did not write the rules of composition, why the heck should I follow them?” In this class, Rick will share his favorite images from his worldwide travels that illustrate his photo philosophy when it comes to composition.
Award-winning photographer Rick Sammon loves his day job. A tireless, prolific and inspirational image-maker, Rick, called by some “The Godfather of Photography,” is one of the most active photographers on the planet – dividing his time between creating images, leading photo workshops, and making personal appearances. Rick’s enthusiasm for digital imaging is contagious. He is a man on a mission – a mission to make digital photography fun, creative, exciting and rewarding for others.
