FOTOfusion is a very different kind of event, in fact, the word "festival" is perfect. It's a celebration and attended by some of the most recognized artists in photography today. And, as the list on the right demonstrates, there's no shortage of activities to help you feed your passion for imaging.
It's been a few years since I got over to the east coast of Florida for the event, but this year I'll be there along with a very special instructor, Ossian Lindholm. I've shared a lot of Ossian's image and tips here on the SCU site and while we've talked on the phone many times, we've never actually met face to face. Our friendship is a prime example of how social media and the Internet has made the world a smaller space.
"Learn about wildlife, conservation and outdoor photography from renowned Argentinian nature photographer and documentary filmmaker Ossian Lindholm. In this inspiring and educational seminar, Lindholm will discuss the complex process behind his 40 years of breathtaking wildlife photographs. Learn how to get to know your subject, capture wildlife in their natural environment, the best places to find animals; the importance of respecting wildlife and wildlife ethics."
Also attending the event will be Lauren Hefferon, founder of Ciclismo Classico and Travel Vision Journeys. In addition to being one of the industry's leaders in award-winning travel, she's a talented photographer in her own right.
And, if you can't make it to FOTOfusion to meet Ossian, he'll be speaking at B&H in New York, January 18. Here's the link for more information.
What a way to kick off the new year!
