Great photographers are like terrific chefs. They have a favorite cuisine or, with Lewis Kemper, a specialty. They have a restaurant they're associated with, with Lewis, it's the outdoors. And they have their favorite tools of the craft; with Lewis, one key set of tools is thanks to Tamron.
We're excited to welcome Lewis Kemper back to the Tamron Recipes series, featuring favorite images from some of the very best artists in imaging. He's a photographer, author, and educator who redefines passion for the outdoors and wildlife. Based out of Sacramento, his love for the outdoors and telling the story of North America has become his signature. He has been to 47 states, from Alaska to Florida. And his international travel has taken him to over ten countries, including China, Tibet, India, and Iceland, to name a few.
Having followed Lewis' work for many years, while his images are stunning, it's his passion for the craft I appreciate the most. His love for the wildlife and landscape has been a constant quest for the ultimate image for over 40+ years. He simply doesn't slow down!
Lewis Kemper should be on your radar. Check out his website and definitely visit his galleries. And if you've got an interest in terrific hands-on workshops, take a look at three trips he's got coming up later this year to Alaska, Kenya, and Death Valley.
Just before recording the short backstory that went with today's post, Lewis and I talked about Tamron lenses. They're manufacturing some of the finest optics in the world. On June 6, they launched a limited-time Father's Day promotion, making this an ideal time to visit your Tamron dealer. Just click on the banner below.
