Off the Grid and Behind the Lens
We will have the opportunity for a look into Lawrence Leyderman’s lifestyle on the road as a photographer. He will showcase some of his favorite work, offer insights on the creative process, and provide information on gear and techniques. He will delve further into the outdoor lifestyle, to discuss the importance of scouting, planning and preparation, safety and survival tips, and will share an engaging narrative around his challenges on the road and the joys of living a normadic lifestyle, with the freedom it offers for creativity and exploration and for connecting with people and places in a unique way.
Lawrence eats, breathes, and dreams about photography, loves adventure, and thrives in the challenge of getting an incredible shot. Not to say that he doesn’t enjoy photographing icons such as the beautiful arches in Utah that have been photographed a million times over, but he really enjoys going to places that are rarely shot and rarely explored.
Prior to being an educator, leading photography workshops, and living on the road, Lawrence was a full time real estate and architectural photographer in New York City. He still enjoys the occasional real estate shoot.
Above all else, Lawrence wants to be an inspiration to others to not only create the life of their dreams, but to get outdoors, create art, unforgettable memories, enjoy nature, and the beautiful earth that we live on.
