The Return of MACRO and MORE !

Usually when sequels to movies come out they are rarely good ones. There are some exceptions like the Godfather 2 and others.

moats-mugWell hold on to your hats! Macro and More is BACK!!! (Though for now only one day–read on)

First, let me say that I don’t like the word Macro for a few reasons. Macro photography normally means 1:1 shooting with a macro lens. I rather the term “CLOSE UP” Photography be used. I make a lot of decent images with other lenses, rather than just macro lenses …. just my $0.02. Continue reading The Return of MACRO and MORE !

DAY 2

Sunrise Light

We had great light and great conditions, exceptional for a winter day here in Iceland. After a great sunrise and  a great sunset we were treated to a wonderful aurora display over Jokulsarlon. The images speak for themselves. Without light, images suffer!

2017 Workshop Schedule / JACK GRAHAM PHOTOGRAPHY

_jgx0491-editGreetings from Townsend, Tennessee, in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. I am here this week to speak at the 2nd annual Great Smoky Mountain Photo Summit. It’s great to get to see so many friends, both pro photographers as well as attendees. This is a four day conference that includes breakout sessions, group talks, field trips, vendor interaction and more.

The most great to be able to interact with about 200+ folks, all eager to learn from the 15 or so “pro’s on the roster …all in one place! It’s also fun to get to hang out with the other instructors/speakers, most of which I only run into in the field. The stories are never ending.  For me is “hanging” with the other “pro’s” here and exchange stories and experiences is a lot of fun. We are all still learning from each other!

Every morning we take out groups into the park for some field work. The color here this year isn’t great, but the Smoky’s is always a beautiful place to be.

I thought I’d share a few images with you from yesterday and today.

(Bill Fortney and I are going to be doing 2 events (Photography workshops) here in the spring and one in the fall of 2017, if anyone’s interested… we’d love to have you along!– CLICK HERE for information—-JG

Newly published Landscape Photography book

The Insightful Landscape.insightful landscape

I am really humbled (truly an understatement) to be a member of a group of professional landscape photographers comprised of friends and acquaintances from around the world. It’s a very small group, consisting of some of the finest professional landscape shooters anywhere in our universe. We are all connected by our love of the land and share the inspiration we take from it.

I am very pleased to announce the publication of “The Insightful Landscape,” a collection of over 150 landscape photographs, both in black and white and color. It is a very high quality book, printed on ProLine Pearl paper.

Beside a few of mine, images contained in this book come from some amazing photographers, the likes of …  Guy Tal, Alister Benn, David duChemin, Michael Gordon, Jim Goldstein, Andy Biggs, Floris van Breugel,  Gary Crabbe, Richard Wong, Lon Overacker, Tim Parkin, Colleen Miniuk-Sperry, Bill Chambers, Chuck Kimmerle, Joseph Kayne … and others.  Just being asked to be part of this group and project is an honor!

This book is available for sale by clicking here. It can also be ordered for eBook or in Apple iPad format.

This project is one of love, not money, and none of us are benefiting financially. We have added a few dollars to the cost of each book, of which 100% will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in honor of a participating photographer’s son who is fighting the disease.

This book is available for sale by clicking here.  You’ll love this collection! —-Thank you for your support.—Jack
