6/13/2018 at 7 pm – Colorado Mountain Club. I’ll be speaking about B&W and how Vision is the most important tool a photographer has in their toolbox, even more important than equipment! Location: American Mountaineering Center at 710 10th Street, Golden, CO,

I am happy to announce that I will be participating in the 2018 Moab Photo Symposium. I am one of eight photographers who will be presenting and conducting workshops.
This event will take place on May 3-6, 2018 in Moab.
If you’ve not been to Moab before, that alone should motivate you to attend. But this Symposium is about so much more than location. It’s about learning and pursuing your Vision with a group of like minded artists.
I know this event seems very far off and you might be tempted to decide later if you would like to attend, but please be aware that registration opened last Saturday and all sign-up records were broken. This is not marketing hype designed to get you to act, I just don’t want to see anyone miss their chance to attend one of my workshops because they waited to long.
My presentation and workshop will be focused on Vision, which is my favorite topic, and because as I like to say: nothing else matters.
The Halcyon hotel is hosting a series of Artist Talks and have invited me to speak on Thursday, December 15th at 5 pm. The location is 245 Columbine St, Denver, CO 80206. No RSVP is required, but space is limited.
During the one hour presentation I’ll be sharing the stories behind my favorite images, such as:
The Angel Gabriel, who is he and why did I call him that?
Swimming Towards the Light, how did I get this underwater shot? Is this an underwater shot?
How the Harbinger series got started on a hot summer’s day in the middle of Nowhere, Utah.
How did I photograph the Moai of Easter Island in a photo studio?
Are those real ghosts that you photographed at Auschwitz-Birkenau?
Why do all of these Ukrainians have their eyes shut?
How did I find and photograph so many icebergs?
And many others stories about many other images.
Please come and spend an hour with me and learn about some of my favorite images.
Vancouver Photo Workshops proudly announces this public lecture and presentation with black and white fine-art photographer Cole Thompson.
Cole’s presentation will revolve around images from his portfolios and is interspersed with some of the things he has learned about Vision, listening to himself, the role of equipment, the rules of photography and etc.
For Cole ‘…color records the image, but black and white captures the feelings that lie beneath the surface.’
Following his lecture, we will open the floor to any questions you might have and Cole will be giving away three of his prints.
