As photographers, we strive to produce images which express our creativity and thinking. We often work on creating technically perfect images, but may overlook the way we convey ideas through our photographs.  Developing a personal vision is truly an evolution in one’s photography.

Professional Photographer Michael Zide has had a rich life in photography.

“Growing up in Los Angeles, I began my photographic excursion into black and white landscape photography in my early twenties. Four days after the astronauts first landed on the moon, I began my own more limited adventure, driving from California to the East Coast. For almost 13 years I lived on Martha’s Vineyard Island year round where I tried to transpose my West Coast photographic vision of space and monumentality on a much more subtle and less dramatic environment. The result taught me a lot about what appeals to my photographic approach and to my choices of subject matter.  In 1982 my wife, three dogs and cat moved to Amherst where we currently live. As an instructor at Hallmark Institute of Photography for nine years, I found that teaching was as fulfilling and satisfying as image making. I enjoy talking about personal vision in my own workshops and at Maine Media in the summer.”

In this talk, Michael will speak about the evolution of his own vision, the many challenges of image making, and the insights he has taken away from his forty something years in the field.

In addition, Michael is a Moab Master Photographer and is sponsored by Canon printers. He is also a member of Manfrotto and Livebooks Ambassador Programs.  To get you started on your vision, Michael will offer sample packs of Moab paper at his talk.
