THE ETOBICOKE CAMERA CLUB … is pleased to present outdoor, nature and landscape photographer and lecturer, REthan Meleg at tomorrow’s Monday, April 10th, 2017, speaker/presentation meeting starting at 7:00 pm hosted at the Humber Valley United Church with his talk titled, For the Love of the Landscape.
Long time ECC members may remember Ethan from his last talk at the club 5 years ago (time flies!), sharing his images of travels near and far. This year Ethan returns to concentrate on landscape photography.
Ethan is a freelance photographer from Ontario, Canada. He specializes in photos of outdoor recreation, landscapes, ecosystems, birds and wildlife. He is represented by major stock agencies and has been published by National Geographic, Canadian Geographic, Forbes, Ontario Tourism, Lonely Planet, Popular Photography and many more. Ethan is a popular keynote speaker, workshop leader and magazine columnist. He writes the humor and bird photography columns in every issue of Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine.
Growing up near world famous birding hotspot Point Pelee National Park, Ethan often skipped school to watch songbirds during migration. By the time he was a teenager, he had developed an in-depth knowledge of nature. At 19, he received a hand-me-down camera from his parents and began to learn the basics of nature photography. In between watching birds and taking photos, he completed a degree in Environment and Resource Studies at Trent University. Before becoming a pro photographer, Ethan had developed a career as a nature guide and tourism specialist in national parks. Ethan lives in the Georgian Bay area of Ontario. His greatest passion in life is exploring the natural world through his camera, whether on exciting trips or in his own backyard.
MONDAY’S TALK – For the Love of the Landscape!
Great landscape photos have the power to inspire us and evoke a sense of place! The best landscape photos have three key ingredients: dramatic light, strong foregrounds and depth of field from near to far. Ethan will share his top tips on techniques and gear (including filters) for making stunning landscape photos that will leave others saying ‘wow’!
Please join us and bring a friend or neighbour if you can, for another look at some incredible landscape photography through the eyes and lens of our speaker, Ethan Meleg. Guest fee of $ 5.00 in effect (put towards membership if you decide to join).
NOTE : Originally booked nature & landscape photographer’s talk by Galen Brown was replaced due to conflicting upcoming travel arrangements in Galen’s schedule.
