“The panAFRICAproject… and more!”

 

with Lou Jones

(Sunday, February 18th)

 

The Shooters Gallery Photography Group is excited to be welcoming back professional photographer, Lou Jones. Lou lectures and teaches workshops all over the world, in addition to maintaining a studio in Boston, Massachusetts.

During this entertaining and educational 3-hour seminar, he will speak about several of his major long-term photography “projects”… both past and present.

Lou has spent months in Africa documenting it’s inner workings for the panAFRICAproject, creating a contemporary, visual portrait of modern Africa. Along with sharing his amazing images, he will talk about his photographic and personal experiences while undertaking this massive project.

Lou will also be presenting a segment on the Downtown Crossing Project in Boston, sharing a different aspect of this assignment that has been ongoing since 2013.

Photographing the Olympic Games was another highlight of Lou Jones’ career. He photographed twelve successive Olympic Games, and will share his experiences and the challenges he faced.

Lou will be combining these long term projects with:
1) How to stay relevant in the ever changing world of commercial, documentary & fine art photography
2) How technology & social media has changed things
3) The power of photography as the “universal language” worldwide
4) How cameras & equipment constantly helps & hinders photographers progress

Please join us for this great event!
