Humanitarian Mission in Togo, presented by Claude Wauthier

 
Claude will entertain us about his experience as an adventure photographer in "le Défi des Grands Voyageurs" and "le Défi Champlain", both fundraising adventures, similar to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Most of his presentation will center on his participation in a Humanitarian Mission in Togo that took place in Decembre 2013.
 
What are the challenges from a photographic perspective, what to expect, what equipment to bring, how to ensure a smooth workflow, etc. His presentation will include a 21 minutes video, in which some surgical and fire eating scenes may not be for the faint of heart. But still, a night not to miss!!!

HOOKED ON NATURE

Rudy Pohl

Rudy Pohl has been an avid photographer since 1970 and a nature lover since before then. However, only in recent years has he joined these two loves together into his new-found passion for wildlife and nature photography. While still fairly new on the scene, his images are becoming recognized and are being published in some well-known magazines including Canadian Geographic and the UK's Digital Photographer which recently did a feature story on him and his work.    

Rudy's motto is, "Seeing treasures on our doorstep and beauty where we live...”  When it comes to wildlife and nature photography, his passion is to find and photograph the amazing natural wonders that are right here on our doorstep in and around Ottawa, and his desire is to help others do the same.

Abstract Assignment & General Competition

Abstract
Like abstract art, Abstract photography concentrates on shape, form, colour, pattern and texture. The viewer is often unable to see the whole object. The focus is often only a small part of it. Viewers of an abstract shot may only know the essence of the abstraction or understand it by what is implied. Normally the object or image will not be a literal view of the subject. 

A single assignment image must be entered.

Once the assigment image has been entered then a single general image may be entered.
