Jon Van de Grift will give a presentation on, “Weathering the Storm: The Challenges of Photography in Extreme Places.” This presentation will include new photographs from his 2013 field season, a preview of his upcoming work, and a question and answer session for photographers seeking advice on how to cope with the elements.
Jon Van de Grift is an extreme weather photographer based in Boulder, Colorado. His photographs have been published worldwide in nearly every medium. What makes Jon’s photographs unique is his uncommon approach and lofty perspective. Beyond the typical documentary snapshots of storms, Jon makes true fine art of some of the most dangerous weather on Earth. His platform of choice is a mountain summit and when that’s not available, he uses an aircraft. He is one of only a few fine art aerial photographers in the world. When he’s not behind the camera, he’s in front of the chalkboard teaching earth and atmospheric science at the Metropolitan State University of Denver.
