Join George DeWolfe and Eddie Soloway at the Rockport Opera House Tuesday, August 28th, at 7:30pm.
George DeWolfe has been a photographer since 1964. He studied with Ansel Adams and Minor White in the 1970’s, and Perception with Dr. Richard Zakia. He taught Zone System and Perception at the New England School of Photography, the University of Idaho, and Colorado Mountain College. He initiated the Appalachian Mountain Club photography workshop and teaches numerous workshops and seminars throughout the country, including Digital Fine Printing, the Master Print, Advanced Photoshop, Contemplative Photography, and The Contemplative Landscape. For many years a contract photographer, his clients included APC, Eastman Kodak, Hewlett-Packard, Teledyne Water-Pik, United Bank, Yamaha, J.C. Penny, and Sears. George has published three books, George DeWolfe’s Digital Photography Fine Print Workshop at Home in the Wild, edited by David R. Brower, and has contributed to dozens of others including The New Zone System Manual, Zone Systemizer, Perception and Photography, Visual Concepts for Photographers, The Dictionary of Photography, and Creative Digital Printmaking. His most recent book, Black & White Printing, received wide acclaim, and he is working on Contemplative Photography. He has produced two Adobe Photoshop plug-ins, Optipix and Perceptool. He was on the original Lightroom development team.
Now a fine art photographer, George has shown forty one-man and numerous group exhibitions and is in several permanent collections. He is an advisor to Epson America, Adobe and Hahnemühle. Awards include award for artistic excellence from the National Park Service. He holds an MFA in photography and graphic art from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
George’s passions are teaching visual and digital photography skills and photographing the mysteries of the world. He combines the structure of ancient Chinese landscape painting with the structure of Western landscape genres to achieve his mysterious style. And when he has the time, he plays the bluegrass 5-string banjo.
Eddie Soloway’s photographs are the expression of his passion and commitment to the natural world. His eye has developed during a lifetime of exploring the earth’s wild places. Former positions in educational workshop design, wilderness program development, and custom fine photographic printing have further honed his expertise. In 1998, Eddie was the first recipient of the Excellence in Photographic Teaching Award presented by the Santa Fe Center for Photography. Today he divides his time between making fine-art prints, teaching, speaking on creativity and the photographic life, and furthering photographic publishing projects. His first book, One Thousand Moons, was published in the summer of 2004, and the dvd, A Natural Eye Workshop was released in December, 2009. An impassioned teacher, Eddie brings experiences in both nature and photography to his workshops.
