Free Presentation by Leica Shooter Gary Copeland

Photo by Gary Copeland

Please join us for an evening with Leica shooter Gary Copeland. Gary is a professional photographer based in Los Angeles, CA. You’ve probably already seen some of his photos, as he has worked with iconic companies like Oakley, Converse, and Arnette Sunglases, just to name a few.

Gary also covers the contemporary music scene, often times documenting events like the South by Southwest Music Festival, among others. Many of his images, all with Leicas are shot for various recording companies. Lately however, Gary has turned to a more personal project : documenting the backstage life of his friends in the metal band Valient Thorr.

Gary will share his photos with us and talk about how Leica fits in so well with his style of shooting.

April Photo Walk : Shooting Lacrosse

Photos by Michael Maloney

Join Michael as we shoot America’s first sport : lacrosse.

For this photo walk, we will visit the campus of Acalanes High School in Lafayette where we will have sideline access to shoot a girl’s varsity game against Dougherty Valley.

Lacrosse is fast-paced and full of action. A real challenge to photograph! Shooting soccer is easy compared to this sport! The athletes sprint up and down the field with abrupt starts and stops, while making precision passes with the crosse. It’s a combination of basketball, soccer and hockey, and one of the fastest growing team sports in the United States.

Michael will be on hand to help you set up your camera and give you valuable info to help you come up with some great action shots. What you learn in this photo walk, can be applied to any other action sport or just to capture images of your kids running through the park.

Although we will have sideline access, a long telephoto lens is highly recommended.

Sign up early for this photo walk as it will be limited to just 12 participants.

Tuesday, April 30th

6:30 PM

Cost : $25.00
