Course-Description-Button-BPF

Lewis Kemper has been photographing the natural beauty of North America, and its parklands for over 30 years. During his extensive travels, he has been to 47 states from Alaska to Florida.   His work has been exhibited and published in magazines, books, and calendars worldwide.

 

Before moving west, he received a BA in Fine Art Photography from the George Washington University in 1976. The grandeur of the west beckoned and Lewis moved to Yosemite National Park, where he lived for 11 years. From 1978 until 1980, he worked at The Ansel Adams Gallery. Working at the gallery gave him the opportunity to meet, observe and learn from some of the greatest photographers of our time. “The experience of working at The Ansel Adams Gallery was very influential in my development as a photographer”, he states.

 

Lewis photographs in color using Canon digital cameras and 4 x 5 cameras and is a Canon Explorer of Light Emeritus. Learn more about Lewis at www.lewiskemper.com

Festival Organizer Note About Field Workshops

We want you to enjoy and learn as much as you can in your field workshops. Therefore it is important to arrive early and have all of your gear ready to go. Each field workshop will begin with a 10 minute overview of the subject and techniques. Have your gear ready when you arrive so you do not miss out or hold up the group. Suggested gear lists are included with each field workshop.
