Nevada Wier - Creativity and Travel Photography
Saturday April 17 , 2021 10:30 -12pm EST
Travel photography requires the combination of technical expertise, culture competence, intuitive awareness, curiosity, and a dash of panache. Nevada shares her tips on how to photograph more insightfully and creatively, even in some of the harshest light, to create beautiful images you know exist and your mind imagines, but your technical expertise is lacking. Nevada dissects ways to see more creatively and “photographically”, as well as tips on using color powerfully. In this intensive seminar she also discusses how to approach and photograph people in foreign lands to create natural, respectful, and unique portraits.

TUITION: $45 Non-Members; $35 Members
Our visual familiarity is limited to colors in the visible spectrum. Beyond what our eyes can see lies the iridescent world of the infrared (IR) spectrum. Join Nevada Wier as she describes her exploration in making the invisible visible: photographing unusual places using the unusual, haunting light of infrared. “I love that I am creating an image of a subject that I can see…but rendering in light that that is invisible to my eyes; mildly surreal and metaphysical.” The resulting photographs are truly visual poetry.
PAST LECTURES 2020 - 2021
with Nevada Wier & Eddie Soloway
April 6 (Tuesday) & April 8 (Thursday) 2021
Nevada Wier and Eddie Soloway share a love for wild and remote travel destinations. Eddie makes a point of seeking out blank spots on the map, while Nevada passionately explores cultures far removed from our fast-paced world. For two evenings online, these two friends share stories, photographs, and practical advice, comparing notes on an engaging array of personal travel topics.
Through photographic presentations and conversations, Eddie and Nevada chart the evolution of their aesthetic visions and examine the fluid demands of making photographs in the moment. Seeing deeply amidst the chaos and sometimes stillness of a place is essential for a thoughtful travel adventure. Equally important is the ability to tread lightly on the land and, if possible, to return periodically to a special location to deepen your connections. They touch on topics such as nonverbal communication, overcoming preconceived notions, and how to create evocative images that speak from your heart.
They also delve into the process of preparation for a thoughtful photographic journey, determining where to look, how to look, what to avoid, and which equipment to carry. They also take time to reflect on the experience of living through 2020, taking stock of the gifts received and the lessons learned, including the ability to embrace Plan B.
Join two seasoned travel photographers who share an enduring friendship and a wealth of practical experience as you learn how to overcome preconceived notions about a place and come home with much more than a photograph.

TUITION: All three sessions: $149; individual session $59
Travel photography requires the combination of technical expertise, culture competence, intuitive awareness, curiosity, and a dash of panache. Nevada shares three of her iconic lectures on light, creativity, color, and photographing people while weaving stories from her 40+ career exploring the far corners of the globe.
SESSION 1: LIGHT - PHOTOGRAPHING AT ALL TIMES OF THE DAY
Sunday March 7, 2021 (10AM - 12PM PST)
In this first session Nevada focuses on how to photograph at all times of the day (or night), even in some of the harshest light, to create beautiful images you know exist and your mind imagines, but your technical expertise is lacking. Primarily she will be discussing working in natural light but will also give you tips on how to use one flash on your camera in the field, and Nevada will explain her approach to infrared photography.
SESSION 2: PHOTOGRAPHING WITH INTENT AND CREATIVITY
Sunday March 14, 2021 (10AM - 12PM PST)
Nevada tackles the challenge of photographing with creative intent while on the move. She will be discussing ways to see "photographically" in order to elevate your aesthetic vision. Analyzing her images, Nevada will explain the technical know-how and creative vision to make an image that rises above the usual travel clichés.
SESSION 3: COLOR & PHOTOGRAPHING PEOPLE
Sunday March 21, 2021 (10AM - 12PM PST)
Color is very seductive and nuanced. In the first part of this session Nevada will explore how to use color effectively and powerfully. Lastly, Nevada discusses how to approach and photograph people in foreign lands to create natural, respectful, and unique portraits and environmental portrait
