Creativity and Travel Photography with Nevada Wier

  • July 22, 2017
    9:00 am - 1:00 pm


The New Mexico chapter of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) is pleased to announce a Creativity and Travel Photography seminar with award-winning internationally recognized photographer Nevada Wier. The half day seminar will be held in Tipton Hall on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

Photographing on the move in foreign countries requires the combination of technical expertise, culture competence, intuitive awareness, curiosity and a willingness to experiment with creative techniques”, says Nevada Wier, a specialist in travel photography. She will discuss how to combine technical, practical, and creative aspects of travel photography in order to create an image that elevates itself above the usual travel clichés. The seminar will also focus on how to approach and creatively photograph people, cross-cultural considerations in foreign countries, working in difficult lighting, using natural light, fill-flash, tips on equipment, and digital concerns in the field.

The seminar is a fundraiser for THE FENCE, a large-scale photography exhibition reaching over 4 million visitors annually through open-air exhibitions in 7 cities across the United States: Santa Fe, Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Durham, and Denver. THE FENCE, and associated regional exhibit, THE FENCE NEW MEXICO. The exhibition will be on display again this year at Santa Fe’s Railyard Park, July 22, 2017 – November 4, 2017. THE FENCE is a featured project of PhotoSummer. PhotoSummer, now in its third year, is a collaborative initiative that represents and actively promotes historical and contemporary photography in New Mexico.

Our thanks to Santa Fe University of Art and Design and the Marion Center Photographic Arts.
