June 18, 2020 - John Lehman: From How to Wow - Photographing People
Photography - especially photographing people - has been a passion for John Lehman since the 3rd grade when his parents gave him a Kodak Brownie camera.
While he shoots some still life and landscape images, nothing has held so much fascination as photographing people. He has created hundreds of portraits and is very active photographing people and events for heritage villages.
"From How to Wow - Photographing People" will be a practical presentation on taking pictures of people both indoors and outside.
He’ll talk about how you can take an idea for photographing a person and make it a reality. He'll also talk about how limited additional equipment and what you already own can create better images of people.
Professionally, John has spent the past 20 years as a psychologist. He worked mostly in evaluations of public safety and health professions. He retired from doing clinical care in 2016. He is currently a consultant with the Texas Board of Nursing.
The majority of John's work can be found on Flickr. He has over 4000 followers from around the world and his images have been viewed over 22 million times.
His website is thewizardofpixels.com.

July 16, 2020 - Jeremy Woodhouse: Life on the Road - Wild, Land, City, Life
As the owner of Pixelchrome, Inc., Jeremy has enjoyed a roller coaster ride pursuing the American Dream.
Since his early days as a graphic designer, his dream was to become a stock photographer. Riding the wave of the internet revolution in the mid-1990s, he got involved with Getty Images and went on to build a successful business traveling the world and taking stock pictures. By 2005, he started setting up frequent international trips to Italy and to Mexico. He went on to lead trips to Guatemala and Costa Rica.
Since 2011 Jeremy has completed more than 100 international Photo Tours to such destinations as Colombia, the Balkans, Burma, the Stans, India, Sri Lanka, Iceland, Cuba, Iran, Yemen, the Baltic States, Morocco, Sicily, South Africa, Sardinia, Romania, Vietnam, Nepal, Spain, Portugal … the list goes on.
Jeremy used to describe himself as a nature and outdoor photographer, but over the years he has re-branded himself several times. He has traveled widely, photographing many of the world’s most important city skylines. In 2006 he became part-owner of a lifestyle stock photography company (Blend Images), and now he is indulging his new passion of photographing people in developing nations. At least once or twice a year he plans a nature photo tour which might find his group photographing wildlife in the wintery wilds of Japan, leopards in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, or the world’s tallest dunes in Namibia.
Jeremy’s photos have appeared in print all over the world. He has received numerous international awards in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, winning the Wild Places Category in 2000, and he was overall winner of the 2002 Nature’s Best International Photography Awards. His images have been included in exhibitions at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, the Dallas Museum of Natural History, and the Natural History Museum in London.
Jeremy's images have also been selected in the final judging stage for the prestigious, UK-based Travel Photographer of the Year Award (TPOTY) every year since 2011. In 2016 he was the Winner of the TPOTY Best Single Image in a Mankind Portfolio, and his image was Highly Commended in the One Shot "SHAPED BY LIGHT."
Jeremy’s Photo Tours website is pixelchromephototours.com and his image archive is at pixelchrome.com.
