We're very pleased to welcome Navy Nhum to present on Portrait Photography

In her words:

About

Not everyone gets my name right on the first attempt but it always makes me smile watching people try. Just in case you were wondering, it’s pronounced Na-vee Newm :)

My goals are simple, capture those real moments, the raw energy and most importantly, the story. To me, these are what make an image mean something and preserve more than just a moment in time. I’m not going to tell you how much I love photography or show a picture of me posing and smiling with a camera because well, no one wants to see another one of those. All I’ll say is that I love travelling, using the right side of my brain, and creativity is what keeps me sane. I also love the Rubik’s cube and really wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon just hanging out by the ocean solving it.

The Oakville Camera Club Welcomes Larry Nicols to talk about people, architecture and travel photography and building a business around that.

In his own words:

Photography for me is all about the aesthetic. I like to create beautiful images. And I find beauty everywhere, especially in the imprint of life on people’s faces and on the landscape. I tell stories through my pictures. I especially love the nuances of black and white imagery. So much narrative is told in the gray areas.

My commercial work is clean and precise, like plain language. My artistic work is personal, whimsical and subtle. It makes space for the viewer to find subtext and meaning in ways that move and engage. That’s the real power of photography.

I have solid classical technique. I started taking pictures on a Kodak Brownie when I was eleven. I got my hands wet pulling light-sensitive paper through a series of chemical baths. The magic of watching an image appear has never failed to amaze me.

My classical background was a perfect launch pad into the digital age of photography. I not only embraced the technology wholeheartedly but led the charge on it. I find digital photography liberating, crazy creative and perfect for someone like me who seeks and appreciates the beauty in life.

We are very lucky to get Maia Sutnik, Curator Emeritus Photography, at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). We're going deep into photographic history with two European photographers, Josef Sudek and Alfred Eisenstaedt

The artistry of two legendary photographers explore the themes of commonality and intimacy. Throughout their long photographic careers, both photographers demonstrated craftsmanship, technical virtuosity, and imagination that was often unparalleled among their contemporaries. Sudek (Czech, 1896-1976) was grounded in his homeland and pursued a world of light and meditation; Eisenstaedt (West Prussia-Germany, 1898 - USA 1995), traveled widely and with great speed to capture the newsworthy.

Maia-Mari Sutnik is Curator Emeritus Photography, at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Since starting to develop the collection of photographs at AGO in 1978, she has organized and or curated over seventy exhibitions on the work of; Robert Frank, Bill Brandt, Harry Callahan, John Gutmann, E. Haanel Cassidy, Charles Macnamara with M.O. Hammond, Michel Lambeth, Willliam Wegman, Andre Kertesz, Josef Sudek, Ansel Adams and Alfred Eisenstaedt, as well as, a wide range of thematic exhibitions, among them “Eros & Thanatos”, “Interior Spaces”, and “Responding to Photography: Toronto Private Collections”. Her recent major exhibition and corresponding book, “Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henry Ross”, exhibited at the AGO and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, will be touring in USA. She has authored many catalogues, written extensively on photographic collecting and practices, participated on juries, panel discussions and lectured. She is an affiliated of Ryerson University’s Master Program on Photographic Preservation and Collections Management, and currently working on a book on Canadian photographer Michel Lambeth.

Meet in the historic limestone village of Elora, a noted tourist attraction, with a famous waterfall called the Tooth of Time, overlooked by an old mill, numerous small shops and art galleries. Located on the Grand River, the Elora Mill is Ontario's only remaining five-story mill and has been renovated as a prestigious inn and restaurant. Elora is also famous for its unique shops and its quaint cafes and restaurants, which lie along the river's scenic edge.
An option available to the more adventurous will be to photograph the spectacular Elora Gorge at the western edge of the village, adjacent to the Elora Gorge Conservation Area. At the eastern end of the village is the Elora Quarry Conservation Area, including a scenic former limestone quarry.

2:00 - 4:00 PM - Culinary Tour “Optional”
Previous OCC events sold out, so book early and come join us for a guided stroll through the streets of historic Elora and enjoy the culinary delights found there.  During the Culinary Tour you will sample specially created dishes at various locally owned and operated restaurants and shops while learning about the history and architecture of the area.  This organized walking tour brings together food, history and architecture in a unique and fun way.

Culinary Tour
Cost: $25.00 (including taxes)
Tour Capacity Limit: 20 people
Tour Details: http://eloraculinarywalkingtour.com/

Meet-up Time
9:00 AM at the Visitor information Centre on East Mill Street, Elora
Local free parking is available.
For those wishing to explore the gorge, entry into the Elora Gorge Conservation Area may be required, with day-use access fees of $6.50 per person being applicable.

What to Wear:
With spring weather upon us, we suggest a layered approach to your clothing, as it may be cooler in the morning, and warming up as the day goes on. Wear comfortable and supportive footwear, i.e. hiking shoes/boots are highly recommended if you plan to venture down into the Elora Gorge.

What to Bring:
Water, camera, wide angle and telephoto/zoom lenses, filters, memory cards, tripod or monopod. Bear in mind this is an urban walk so it pays to plan your gear choices accordingly.
What to Expect:
Since this Outing is geared more to an urban walk, it is not considered difficult, however, depending on your interests, and level of adventure, hiking down into the Elora Gorge will present you with more challenging terrain.

Optional - Guided CulinaryTour of Elora
Rain or shine, you will be lead through 5 samplings of; olive oils and vinegars at The Village Olive Grove, coffee and treats at Ashanti Coffee Shop, homemade delights at Lost and Found Cafe’ pastries at E&G Pastry & Fine Cakes, and excite your senses at Neob Lavender Boutique.

The art of photography is more than just pointing your camera at something beautiful and pressing the shutter button. Learning to explore a scene before taking the camera out of the bag is incredibly valuable, and the process always results in better photographs. Taking the concept farther, photographic inventiveness allows you to create art that truly represents your creative vision. Photography has always been a mesh of art and science. The deeper that mesh is woven, the more magical the results become. While the camera is a component of that mesh, the photographer is the most important ingredient.

Geared for beginner to low intermediate photographers.
