The next meeting of Flatirons Photo Club’s Photographic Frontiers Study Group will feature Richard (Rick) Cummings. The meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Boulder Digital Arts, 1600 Range St., Boulder, on Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
Rick states, “Since 1988 Rick has spent a lot of time pointing his camera at people with and without their clothes on, concentrating on fine art nudes, fashion and portraiture. The studio is an integral part of his work as shaping light is one of his passions. His commercial work has been seen in: the New York Times, Elle Decor, Vanity Fair, Yoga Journal and other publications. Rick also teaches classes in nude and portrait photography at his Body Form Photo Workshop.”
If you have, or would like to develop, a passion for creating photographs of yourself and others, don’t miss this presentation.
Remember to bring any photos that you’d like to discuss and/or have critiqued. The purpose of this group is education and mutual support.
At last Thursday’s meeting, we discussed a time/date conflict between the Sandhill Crane Festival and the Denver Month of Photograpy opening at Boulder Digital Arts, featuring the work of several members of Flatirons Photo Club. The Denver Month of Photography organization has already announced the opening as taking place on the evening of Friday, March 10, so it is too late to change that date. I hope anyone interested in attending both is able to juggle their schedule. In any case, enjoy whatever you choose to do.
Ted Wood, an editorial photographer and multimedia producer based in Boulder, will give a talk entitled “Environmental photojournalism in the age of lies and skeptics – what visual storytellers can do to move the needle on climate change awareness” at the Flatirons Photo Club monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, at Har HaShem Synagogue in Boulder.
His work has appeared in Vanity Fair, Smithsonian, National Wildlife, The New York Times, Outside, The Nature Conservancy Magazine and dozens of national and international publications.
