Letter from the Executive Director Dear Friends, Over the last 15 years, we have produced 29 catalogs. The kind of catalog that you could hold and look through and flip the pages. But now with the savvy on-line world, we have made a big decision. We will not be producing a paper catalog any longer, but rather this on-line catalog. You can flip through it too, as the pages turn. One year has passed since we transitioned into the Los Angeles Center of Photography, with one milestone after another. We moved to a new specially-designed location. We had a grand opening and first members’ exhibition. We held a silent auction fund raiser with 167 prints. We hosted many guest speakers, offered 150 classes and a few contests, and worked on developing new plans to benefit our members and photo community. An exciting new development is LACP’s collaboration with several Boys & Girls Clubs. We’re sending LACP instructors to the Clubs to teach kids camera basics and how to document their own lives. There will be an annual exhibit at LACP to show off this work. We have new opportunities for members, including an on-line gallery on LACP’s website, where we will post one person’s portfolio per month. In addition, we have plans to post members’ news online once our new website is in place (which will be soon), as well as produce a “Members’ Quarterly” publication. The more money we raise, the more we can do! We have big plans. We hope you will be part of them. You can start by becoming a LACP member so we can keep you abreast of our ever-expanding array of opportunities. Thank you for reading, and thanks for your support of the Los Angeles Center of Photography.

Sincerely,

Julia Dean, Executive Director

[Enrolling in the One-Year Professional Program] is the best decision I’ve made for myself in a very long

time. I have watched my skill level expand exponentially and my output of imagery improve [tremendously]. LACP staff and teachers are more than supportive community; they have become my social friends and what

I think of as family. I have reshaped my life and I’m readying myself to go out on my own and build a clientele.

Turning Ideas into Pictures with Cig Harvey

Effective photographs are instantaneous and intuitive, but building a body of work requires thought and preparation. In this workshop we will focus on concrete strategies towards developing your ideas, deepening themes, and establishing an ongoing visual dialogue with your subject. A combination of shooting, critique and discussion, this workshop will elevate your perceptive skills as a photographer, building a framework for future growth.

Real People Portraits: Start to Finish with Bobbi Lane & Lee Varis

The New Painters: Finding Your Vision in Fashion with Sheila Metzner

SPECIAL GUESTS

In this fun and creative workshop, students will learn how to enhance their current portfolio or begin a new project by discovering fresh ways of creating unique and singular work. Emphasis will be on new and future images and how to create the regular structure in each of our lives to produce work. Goals and deadlines will be set. Open to all levels of photographers seeking to expand their image-making skills.

This workshop, taught jointly by Bobbi Lane and Lee Varis, will teach students how to master the art of creating flattering and effective portraits of real people. Participants will learn the essential techniques for photographing people in the real word without fancy wardrobe, expensive hair and makeup, or extreme and difficult retouching. Bobbi will teach how to use corrective posing and lighting techniques to overcome challenging subjects, and Lee will teach how to refine and finish the image into a marketable photograph.

The Fashion and Style issue of the New York Times, September 17th, 2014 quotes Peter Lindbergh as he prepared for an exhibition at Gagosian Gallery in Paris, “Fashion photographers are the new painters,” and goes to say “Today, fashion photography is art’s rising star.” But how do you become an iconoclast and remain true to yourself? Join Sheila Metzner in a weekend workshop designed to reveal your individual approach to shooting fashion. Weekend intensive (three sessions) Saturday, March 27, 10 am-6 pm + Saturday and Sunday, March 28-29, 10 am-6 pm Instructor: Sheila Metzner (www.sheilametzner.com) Enrollment limit: 15 students Skill/Experience level: Students should have a working knowledge of their camera and the ability to shoot in manual mode.

The Black and White Master Print with George DeWolfe

Light, Shadow, Night and Twilight with David H. Wells

Light, shadow, night and twilight are the building blocks of photography, a term that literally means, “to write with light.” These are the tools award-winning photographer David H. Wells uses to make photo-essays exploring the light and atmosphere of places such as train stations, religious shrines and city centers. In this fun and explorative workshop, David will teach students the most effective way of incorporating light, shadow, night and twilight in their image-making to produce unique characteristics and extraordinary results.

A masterpiece is the result of an artist’s individual authentic genius. That authenticity creates presence–the key element of an authentic masterpiece–and the final result of light working on the forms of an object or scene. The Black and White Master Print revives the idea of masterpiece.

Stop, Drop and Shoot: The Magazine Assignment with Kevin Scanlon

In this two-day workshop, Kevin Scanlon, a freelance portrait photographer, will cover many aspects of what it takes to be a successful magazine shooter, and what comes with the territory. Scanlon will take you from beginning to end, covering topics such as how to compile a list of photo editors, the basics of marketing to magazines, the right questions to ask when an assignment is issued, executing a photo shoot, basics in post-production with digital capture, and image delivery.

The history of art is replete with depictions of the female nude, but the perspective of the female is often disregarded. This is a unique opportunity to learn the art of the female nude from one of the most published female photographers of the genre. While this workshop will cover many technical aspects of what makes a lasting nude image, the emphasis will be on working with models and the concept of the powerful nude to create images that truly reflect the strength and artistry of the female body.

In Webster’s dictionary, “Boudoir” is defined as a woman’s dressing room, bedroom, or private sitting room. But in photography the term has become very fashionable, a creation of sensual imagery of women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. In this workshop, photographer Jennifer Emery will guide participants on a journey into the art of photographing beautiful and stylistic boudoir. Students will learn the important skills of photographing boudoir as well as posing and working with women to make them look their best.
