I follow Layne’s posts in the Minnesota Photography Facebook group, and aside from his awesome work, his posts often include words of wisdom for photographers.
- “Photograph what you feel. You see something that moves you, photograph it.”
- “It matters if it matters to you.”
This coming Wednesday, September 4, at 6:30 pm, Layne’s program will be “An Intimate Look at Travel Photography.” Educated in fine art photography, Layne Kennedy is known for his editorial photography that conveys a strong sense of place. His images are featured in magazines worldwide on subjects as varied as pink dolphins in the Amazon River to traveling with polar Inuit hunters by dogsled. His feature work appears in Smithsonian, LIFE, Audubon, Islands, Sports Illustrated, Terre Sauvage, Nature Conservancy, Newsweek , National Geographic Traveler, National Geographic Adventure, Outside, Outdoor Explorer, GEO, Forbes, Business Week and other magazines. A frequent speaker at events and workshops, Layne has been teaching photography for more than 25 years. He currently teaches with the Worldwide Mentor Treks, Minneapolis Photo Center, North House Folk School, Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge, and his own worldwide photo tours including tours to Italy, Iceland and Kenya.

The participants voted on their favorites for each category and the votes were tallied and prizes were ordered.. Everyone who took part is a winner. The gallery of all images taken that day are here.
