SUBJECT: Join Professional Nature Photographers in Two Day Workshop
Tel Aviv, Israel – “Most of the time you don’t know if you had a good time on your vacation until you get your pictures back. Then the truth is told,” explains Lorelle VanFossen, one half of the married team of professional nature photographers presenting a unique weekend workshop on nature photography in Tel Aviv on Friday & Saturday, October 25-26 2002. “Our goal is to help photographers learn how to create those wonderful pictures that will prove they had a great time no matter what they are photographing.”
Brent and Lorelle VanFossen are frequent contributors as writers and photographers to many magazines around the United States and England, including Shutterbug, Outdoor and Nature Photography, and Photo Techniques. Their web site, www.cameraontheroad.com, is one of the largest personal web sites on the Internet with over 400 articles featuring tips and techniques about taking your camera on the road and life lived on the road full-time. Before coming to Israel on a temporary work assignment, they had just completed several years cris-crossing North America in their 10 meter travel trailer, covering over 96,500 km from Seattle to Florida to Alaska, and back to Florida again. They took more than 55,000 photographs of the amazing landscapes and wildlife they found along the way. They’ve been in Israel for two years and are continuing their nature photography but expanding into tourist and archeological work as well.
“Israel is such a fascinating place. For such a small country, it hosts an amazingly diverse culture, biology, landscape, and geology,” says Brent VanFossen.
Their weekend workshop called “How To? What For?” will feature creative slide shows accompanied by music as well as their lecture presentation. They will help the participant learn basic elements of exposure, composition, equipment, and have fun exploring the world through the camera. One day is spent in the classroom and one day will be in the field, at a local park putting into practice what they learned the day before.
The program will be at the Tel Aviv Photographic Arts Society Clubhouse in downtown Tel Aviv. Fee: NIS 250; ESRAcards NIS 200. For more information, call Lorelle at 03-696-1890 or visit their web site’s programs, workshops, and seminar information.
