Three Ottawa photographers - Mike Howarth, Howard Sandler, & Glenn Bloodworth - explore the vibrant niche of this photographic genre, examining what it is, its history and masters, its challenges and rewards, recommended equipment and setup, and lot’s of examples.
Michael Dorais, renowned local photographer and Club member, will reveal his photographic journey over the past years - his experiences, failures, learning programs, & sometimes unexpected discoveries. Discussing the ongoing development of a photographic corpus that constantly revisits photographers along their journey, & the search for inspiration which often has no immediate relation to photography per say, he will explore with us his Black & White photography, the use of prints versus digital images, his techniques (or lack of), and his image processing.
Having recently returned to Ottawa from a two year adventure living in Yellowknife, NT, Dyanne will be sharing images taken while chasing the Aurora Borealis in -40C weather, cruising down the only highway to seek out Bison, Ice fishing and Yellowknife culture. Dyanne is an editorial, portrait and fine Art photographer now based in Ottawa, Ontario. In 2014, she was invited by Fuji to be an official Fuji X-Photographer and was one of five Canadian X-Photographers to test the new Fuji XT2 camera prior to it being released.
Many people wear a lifetime of experiences on their face, yet who that person is and what they have experienced often remains a mystery. In this talk, Wayne will present a collection of portraits accompanied by individual stories of inspiration, tragedy, humanitarianism and heroism. The atmosphere and mood of his portraits are often crafted with multiple studio lights on location. He will also discuss technical aspects of his portraits and his approach to lighting.
Captis Photos is an Ottawa based photo cooperative with a wide range of interests and experience. The three photographers involved with Captis, Brendan Montgomery, Jaclyn McRae-Sadik and Connor Evans, will discuss the cooperative and present some of their photography, particularly their photojournalism work and their travel photography in some less travelled places like Chernobyl, Jordan, Peru and elsewhere.
