Ever wonder how top photographers capture that perfect image to convey the wonders of the underwater world? What kind of technique, experience, and, yes, luck yield the beautiful pictures that transport us to faraway atolls and underwater seascapes?
The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation is hosting a series of virtual seminars and intimate discussions with world-class photographers on October 20th, October 27th and November 10th to celebrate the launch of “America’s Marine Sanctuaries: A Photographic Exploration,” publishing on October 20th from Smithsonian Books, and the upcoming 50th anniversary of the National Marine Sanctuary system.
Each of the three sessions will feature an expert underwater photographer sharing their stories of getting the perfect shot, finding their inspiration, and answering your photography questions. Tickets will be limited for each session.
The scheduled speakers include:
Oct. 20: Keith Ellenbogen, underwater photographer, Stellwagen Bank
Oct. 27: Melody Bentz, photographer, Hawaii
Nov. 10: Stephen Frink, underwater photographer, Florida Keys
Tickets can be purchased for individual sessions or as a package, and include an option to receive the book at a reduced price.
