Bio

Roman Kurywczak is a professional nature photographer for over 15 years who conducts lectures and workshops across the globe. His boutique tour company, Roamin’ with Roman Photo Tours, caters to small groups to provide the ultimate learning experience for participants. Whether he is out in Tanzania or standing before a roaring waterfall in Iceland, Roman’s energy and passion for nature photography are clearly evident. You can often find him out in Arches or Yellowstone national park late at night photographing the nighttime landscapes and calling it fun! Closer to home, Roman will spend countless hours doing macro photography. While he enjoys photographing insects, his favorite subject is flowers, which he buys for his wife and he is sticking to that story. Roman is equally comfortable photographing landscapes, macro subjects, and wildlife whether he is at some exotic location or close to home.

His down to earth and easy to follow teaching style make him a highly sought after lecturer. He has given countless lectures and workshops across the country. The author of several instructional eBooks on nature photography, Roman strives to share his passion for photography as others have shared with him. He lives in NJ and is married with two sons.

A proud member of the Sigma Pro team, you can find his galleries, blog, tour schedule, and more on his website: www.roaminwithroman.com


Seminar Details

Fast Glass for Night Photography

This educational how-to program is designed to open up your eyes to the possibility of photographing landscapes after dark. Whether it is the natural landscape with the star filled sky as a backdrop or even venturing out to photograph the landscapes or city lights from a helicopter, Sigma Pro Roman Kurywczak will cover everything from equipment, camera settings, tips, and techniques so participants can create stunning night images of their own. He will discuss “light painting” of a foreground subject as well as overcoming obstacles when the conditions are less than ideal. His e-book on the subject; “A Digital Guide to Photographing the Night Sky” was released in Feb. 2011 and is available as a download on his website: www.roaminwithroman.com

Photographing Wildlife – from Portraits to Action

This exciting educational program will cover everything you will need to know about photographing wildlife in the field. The photographic journey will cover exotic locations such as Tanzania but also include many tips for photographing wildlife closer to home in some unexpected places. Minimum gear requirements will be discussed for both the safety of the wildlife and the photographer as well as some exciting newer options. Camera settings will be covered including what mode to use as well as choosing the right ISO for wildlife portrait work as well as action photography. There will be plenty of images examples showing how those settings will provide impact to your images. The program concludes with an in depth segment on photographing birds in flight.

Taking Your Macro Photography to the Next Level

This in-depth Q&A macro photography seminar will show you the technical tips and tricks needed to take your macro photography to the next level! Many people are comfortable with creating shallow focus macro images but I will show you how to achieve consistently sharp images with maximum depth of field all in a single frame!!! Topics covered will range from gear to specific settings for you to maximize your time spent out in the field. Overcoming distracting backgrounds will be discussed in depth with photographic examples showing you how easy they are to overcome. The use of natural light will be covered but a heavy emphasis will be placed on using flash correctly in the field to properly balance the exposure and achieve dramatic results. We will look at some frequently used tricks by the pros that you can easily apply in the field to quickly improve your macro skills. Many of these tips and tricks are inexpensive and can be done using the gear you already own! During the entire lecture you can ask questions to ensure that you go home with a better understanding of all the topics covered in the program and create tack sharp macro images of your very own.

In February, 2014, he released his e-book on macro photography: “Taking Your Macro Photography to the Next Level”.
