The Central Kansas Photography Club is hosting a one-day Canon “Explorer of Light” seminar featuring George Lepp on Saturday, June 26, 2010 at the Crest Theatre in Great Bend, Kansas.  George is one of North America’s best-known nature photographers, and is a huge advocate of digital imaging.  His photos have appeared in various national magazines, and he is a monthly contributor to Outdoor Photographer.  The seminar begins at 9:15 a.m. and runs through 4:30 p.m., and the cost is $15 per person and the student rate is $7 per person.  Lunch is on your own, but coffee, rolls and juice will be provided in the morning.  Registration will be available at the door, but it would be appreciated if reservations could be made by June 7 to assist in the planning.  For more information, contact Jay Miller, 3626 22nd Street, Great Bend, KS 67530.

During the seminar, the Club will also be holding a photography contest open to anyone.  Photographers may submit a total of up to three entries in categories of Wildlife, Travel Nature and Great Plains Nature.  Mpix is providing prizes!

I’ve had the pleasure of attending two of George’s seminars and I can say with all honesty he’s a phenomenal speaker, an enormous talent but yet very laid back and approachable, and you will almost surely come away with some nugget of information.  It was after attending a seminar he presented in the Kansas City area about 8 years ago that I became more serious about photography and began to read a lot of how-to books and practice, practice, practice shooting.  He discusses many unique and unusual techniques that will inspire your creativity.  Wait until you see his huge panoramic prints – they will blow you away!
