Since she is in so much demand, I am especially pleased to announce that Valérie Jardin will be our speaker at the November 7 meeting. The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm, and her presentation is titled “Photo Stories.” She will share insights into her thought process from visualization to capture as she takes you on a photo walk through a series of photographs. Why did she choose black and white over color? What aperture and why? What was the intent behind the choice of focal point? All this and much more will be shared.
Valérie is a French photographer, currently residing in the United States. After working as a commercial photographer, she now dedicates her time to educating others. Since 2012, Valérie has taken her camera all over the world teaching students the art of visual storytelling. Paris, New York, Rome, Amsterdam, Melbourne, and San Francisco are just a few of the locations she visits.
Apart from teaching others to see photographically, Valérie is a prolific author, speaker, and a podcast producer of the weekly show Hit The Streets. She has been an official FUJIFILM X-Photographer since 2014.
You can check out Valérie’s workshop offerings, portfolio, podcasts and books and prints at her web site.
A special thanks is due to Carl Wegener who persisted on working with Fujifilm and Valérie to bring her to our meeting.
