A special thank you to Leica shooter William Palank and to everyone who attended his excellent presentation last night at the Shadelands Arts Center in Walnut Creek.
William showed us a great representation of his work, mostly environmental portraits, as he talked to us about the rewards and challenges of photographing in other countries, most notably his favorite, Ethiopia. His ability to connect with his subjects and put them at ease clearly came through in each of his photos.
He stressed how important it is for us as photographers to learn the stories of the people we photograph. They all have a story to tell, and if we take the time to listen, it will only improve our images.
To see what other events, workshops and photo walks Camera West offers, be sure to check out the events link on the Camera West website.

Join us for a free presentation by award winning environmental portrait photographer, international traveler and fine art printer, William J. Palank.
His work has been featured in LFI Magazine and on the Leica Blog and he has won numerous Editor’s Choice Awards along with several International Juried Awards. His images demonstrate his genuine curiosity in the wide world around him and its intimate, human stories. He has a somewhat surprising career path which shows the rest of us who are interested in photography what can be accomplished by a committed photographer.
