Travel Images: See Beyond the Usual

In-depth travel images will stand apart from the clutter of ordinary photos on the Internet.  Photographers can create great images by looking more deeply into local cultures, by finding travel vistas with more layers of information, and through more dramatic lighting. Digital cameras that produce incredible files at high ISOs make it possible to photograph in situations that were not thinkable in the past and open doors to a new photographic world.

Ira Block is an internationally renowned documentary photographer, teacher and workshop leader who has traveled the world since his start as a newspaper photographer over 30 years ago.  In additional to numerous press club awards, he has produced over 30 stories for various National Geographic publications.

We want to thank B&H Photo and Sony for making Ira Block’s appearance possible.  Members who arrive before the meeting begins will be able to interact with Ira’s sponsors and see their offerings.
