    Don Spear - "The Command To Look" and More

    By popular demand, we have scheduled an encore performance of this class!

    On some rare occasions, the GVR Camera Club is able to host a special presentation by a photographer who is a true “Master of Light”. The Club has that opportunity this season with a presentation by Don Spear, a founder of the GVR Camera Club and a worldwide photographer.

    Don is going to give information on the greatest photographer that no one has heard of, William Mortensen. Mortensen published a book titled “The Command To Look” with his formula for photographic inspiration. Mortensen was a contemporary of Ansel Adams, but Adams called Mortensen the Great Satan of Photography.

    Join Don and see if Mortensen can inspire you, but sign up soon as this event will fill quickly.

    Paul McCreary - March Speaker Series - 3/28/19 1:30 PM

    During the Great Depression of the 1930s, photographers such as Walker Evans, Arthur Rothstein and Dorothea Lange were sent throughout the United States to capture what many had to endure. Many were escaping the Dust Bowl and seeking better lives. Roy Stryker of the Farm Service Administration (FSA) was behind the project.

    Paul McCreary will present a program featuring some of the photographers and work they produced during that era.

    Paul grew up on an Illinois farm and got an undergraduate degree in art education. He taught art, emotionally impaired students, adults, and was a special education coordinator/TC in Michigan for 29 years, retiring in 1995.

    He deve
    loped an interest in photography while in Michigan, and continue
    d that as he retired to Indiana and moved to Colorado in 2001 with his wife where they owned and operated a B&B. He moved to Arizona part-time in 2006 and full time in 2014.
    He teaches a variety of classes in Green Valley, including painting, and continues with photography and filmmaking. 

    To attend this event, you must be a member of GVR.
