Product photography requires a great deal of work in order to get the shot just right. A product shot is crucial in conveying a product's purpose or message. We're talking about the photos you see at any online retailer, in magazines, or on billboards. Gear varies from product to product, but the fundamentals are almost always the same. Even if you’re not photographing products, the techniques used for product photography are something from which almost everyone can benefit and implement in their own photography. Join us for a live photo session, which includes product photography, the fundamentals of lighting, color management, and much more!

Travelling and discovering our natural world and its cultures with your camera allows you to experience the world intimately and with all of your senses. The travel photographer does not just point his lens and shoot—he explores, he listens, he searches for the best angle, an interesting pattern of colors, and always waits patiently for the best light. Most importantly, a travel photographer must be open to feeling all of the sensations of the place and, if he is lucky, he successfully composes then captures one magical moment, one unique image that precisely transmits his deepest feelings of that place. Travel photography is thus a window into our ourselves, our own highly personal, travel vision. In this inspiring and educational presentation, native Argentinian photographer Ossian Lindholm teaches us the art (and craft) of creating magical landscape photographs as he takes us on an intimate visual journey of his favorite Argentinian places. Lindholm teaches us about saturating a photo with color while introducing us to a rainbow-hued mountain range in the Andes. We learn about how to best frame the full moon’s special light as it rises over a cactus forest or what shutter speed and lens to use when snapping soaring condors. We take a visual and sensory stroll through the world’s highest vineyard and learn how to compose water drops on grapes or what is the best aperture setting to creatively capture Las Salinas Grandes, a vast and brightly lit salt desert at more than 10,000 feet above sea level. Lindholm discusses the 40-year evolution of his photographic passion and artistic vision. Renowned as one of Argentina’s finest photographers, he is also an experienced photography teacher and an acclaimed nature documentary filmmaker who shares the very special light, angles, and colors of his very photogenic and pristine region. He shares some of his tricks, tips, and techniques for connecting, capturing, and creating stunning photographs, and takes us on an intimate photo journey of his most beloved landscapes. Finally, Lindholm elaborates on the crucial role of the travel photographer in conservation that drives his personal mission: “Para conservar, prima hay que conoscer.” To conserve, first you must know. This maxim and personal philosophy have always been threads throughout his life and work. You will walk away with a special understanding and appreciation of this unique and little-known part of the world and be moved and inspired by Lindholm’s passion for photography, filmmaking, and creating endearing images that poignantly communicate and conserve our special and symbiotic relationship to our precious world. This seminar is sponsored by Ciclismo Classico and Travel Vision Journeys, which specialize in using a bike as a way to physically explore and learn about a place. The mission of Travel Vision Journeys is to use the camera literally as a lens of learning and discovery. TravelVision Journeys are active photo vacations that invigorate and immerse guests into the nature, culture, and landscape of the most stunning places in the world. About: Ossian Lindholm Ossian Lindholm is a nature photographer from Tucuman, Argentina. Trained as an Agronomist, he turned his deep passion for nature to photography. In his work as a photographer, teacher, and documentary filmmaker, he is dedicated to capturing, conserving, and sharing the landscape, nature, and culture of Argentina in its most pristine state. Lindholm has published five books, 14 calendars, and he teaches photography throughout the year. Since 1998, he has been leading groups of photographers and naturalists on photographic journeys throughout his native Argentina. For the past four years, he hosted a popular weekly nature TV documentary called Travesia Fotograficas. By crafting powerful images, words, and music that touch the audience’s emotional core, he educates and inspires his Travesia audience to love and protect their environment. Lindholm has been a passionate photographer since he was a small boy. He pursued a career in agricultural engineering and developed a passion for biological sciences that remain a strong influence in his work. For many years he worked as a scientist but, in 1998, he dedicated himself to nature photography. He had a personal revelation that photography was not only a profession but a way to make a difference by delivering an important message about conservation and sustainability. Here was his calling—through photography, teaching, and filmmaking, he must show and teach his fellow Argentinians and the world that nature is sacred and our relationship to Mother Earth is a symbiotic one. This maxim and personal philosophy can be seen through all his work. As he evolved as a photographer, he clarified his mission in one sentence: Para Conservar, primero hay que Conocer... "To conserve, first you must know."

Landscape photography entails the capture of light, color, shape, texture, and emotion to convey your opinion about the natural world. While technical proficiency is important, it is the meaning and vision that you impart to an image that often makes the difference between success and failure. Each of us has a unique and personal vision to express, and Robert Rodriguez Jr believes this is the key to developing—and significantly improving—your photography. In this presentation, Rodriguez discusses how these ideas form the basis of his landscape photography, and how the "art and craft" combine to achieve what is most important, a meaningful image. He talks about not only the basic hows of landscape photography, but more importantly, the whys that can help you begin to "make" meaningful images instead of just hoping for good results. Rodriguez uses real-world examples and his own experiences as a landscape photographer throughout the lecture, and there is a Q+A period as well.
