“Not Just Another Pretty Picture” is a visual presentation and talk about establishing a photographic point of view and interpreting, rather than just describing, what is in front of the camera’s lens. This program is for all photo enthusiasts, regardless of prior experience. A question and answer period will follow, addressing individual ideas and photographic concerns.
A member of Moab fine art paper’s Master Photographer’s Program and an Ambassador for Manfrotto Distribution and Livebooks web design, Michael Zide’s focus has been on creating black and white fine art landscape images from Western Massachusetts, Martha’s Vineyard, and the Southwest. As an educator, he designs workshops and private tutorials, as well as presentations for speaking at venues such as the PhotoPlus International Expo in New York, B and H and Hunts Photo, and at colleges and camera clubs. Selections from this body of work are in museum, corporate, and private collections.
