WEBINAR: Finding Meaning in Photography: Guy Tal and Michael E. Gordon [Benefits Project Coyote]

Joshua Trees and Indian Summer Sky. Mojave Desert, California

Please consider joining me, Guy Tal, and Harold Davis for a January 16, 2021 webinar, Finding Meaning in Photography: Guy Tal and Michael E. Gordon [Benefits Project Coyote]. In Finding Meaning in Photography, the photographers each present their work and discuss how they have found meaning through photography, and how they use their photographic work to convey meaning. Following the individual presentations, Harold Davis will moderate a round-table discussion, and take questions from the webinar audience.

ALL proceeds will benefit Project Coyote, a national non-profit organization whose mission is to promote compassionate conservation and coexistence between people and wildlife through education, science and advocacy. Seating (on a first come, first served basis) is limited. You must register via Zoom to be enrolled in this webinar. I hope you’ll join us on Saturday, January 16, 2021.

Interview: We Talk Photo

I was recently invited by my friends Jack Graham and John Pedersen at ‘We Talk Photo‘ to talk about photography. It was a fun 46 minute chat, completely free of politics, and We Talk Photo quite possibly has the best bumper music in podcasting (straight jazz, not that Kenny G-style pablum). Thank you very much, Jack and John!

New Website!

I am pleased to announce the release of my new website!

Capture

It was more than ten long years since my old website first rolled out. In 2018, 58% of total website visits came via mobile devices and it was time for my site to join the 21st century. The old website featured considerably smaller images and was not mobile device compliant, while the new one features an all-new graphical interface as well as responsive and much larger images (reponsive = images that scale properly to any device for maximum resolution and viewing enjoyment). Hundreds of photographs have been reworked for the new site. More work remains to be done and new bodies of work are forthcoming but I am thrilled with the new look and would love to hear what you think about it. Thank you for viewing!

Photographer notes: consider WideRange Galleries if you need a custom website. I’ve been working with Jack Brauer and WideRange for more than a decade and cannot recommend their services enough.

The presentation includes nearly 200 photographs and a wealth of information about the Park’s natural and human history. The meeting is from 6-8pm and is FREE and OPEN to the public. Come on out!

My forthcoming Death Valley autumn/winter workshop season is filling up quickly. Seats remain open in the two following workshops:

(beginner/intermediate skills)

http://www.visionaryphotoworkshops.com/…/visionary-death-va…
(with Guy Tal; a cerebral and non-technical workshop). We’ve moved this annual workshop earlier in the season to take better advantage of late winter storms and light.

I hope to see you soon in Lancaster or Death Valley!

Featured: Black + White Photography magazine

issue-231_GordonI offer my sincere thanks to Susan Burnstine for writing about my work in her monthly column and featuring four of my images in the August 2019 issue (#231) of Black + White Photography magazine (U.K.). The full print magazine is available at Barnes & Noble and at international newsstands. A digital version can be downloaded here. You can also click here to read this article only (content provided COURTESY OF BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINE (UK), August issue #231).

After reading the article, please check out Susan’s own critically-acclaimed work. She is one of the few photographers today avidly pursuing alternative processes to create an idiosyncratic and deeply personal visual landscape. I’ve long admired her unique style and process and dream-like images. Thank you, Susan!
