Artist Talk: The Fine Art of Travel Photography

March 27
8:00pm - 10:00pm | 1933 S Broadway Suite 1128 Los Angeles, CA 90007 |

Beautiful landscapes and cityscapes as well as powerful environmental portraits and photo essays can be created by anyone with a camera, a concept, and the desire to do so. But how does one transcend the “I was here” imagery that is often associated with travel photography and fine-art images of places near and far? In this session, Mark will share his methodology that, when applied, should yield impressive and, at times, spectacular results.   

* This session is mainly for SIA students but is also open to the public.
