Our kids are in a WinSport Snow School program learning to ski and snowboard at the Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. The hill is a great place to learn and the instructors are adept working with children. Both of them are having a blast out there.
I watched them for an hour on Sunday and then wandered over to the terrain park to watch some very talented boarders and skiers fly.
There are great rollers, kick jumps and skate park features which these snow creatures were ripping off of. I had a great time watching them. I grew up skiing in the mountains but never aired things out like this – so cool!
And there was even a Superman laying it out…
I’m very excited to share the news that Art Wolfe is leading a photography seminar here in Calgary on April 16, 2011. Art has earned great respect from photographers, artists, conservationists and humanitarians around the world. I am constantly amazed by Art’s work and have loved learning from him and his images for a long time.
The seminar is part of a series that Art is presenting across North America. It is titled, “The Art of Composition” and the emphasis is on building the photographer’s eye. Art builds the artistic and technical skills to help the photographer create compelling imagery.
I have traveled with Art in Myanmar and there is no exaggeration when I say he is a fantastic teacher. He has an ability to engage people and present subjects like composition, color, inspiration and light in ways that are relevant to photographers. He not only shares his approach to photography but teaches people how to incorporate these skills into their own work.
Art usually presents this seminar in a large venue but for the Calgary seminar, we have booked a great location with a more intimate setting. The seminar will be held at the Naturbahn Teahouse in Bowness in the Canada Olympic Park. It is a beautiful location for a world-class event!
My wife and I helped out Art’s team with some of the logistics as eyes on the ground here in Calgary so it is very exciting to be only a month away from the seminar. I hope to see you there!
