Session 2 – 1pm – 4pm
Location: Main Library, Goodwood Blvd., Conference Room A
Professional wildlife and conservation photographer Jami Tarris will join us on Saturday, at 10:00 am on July 15 at the Bluebonnet Library to take us on an exciting journey. She and her German-born photographer husband, Theo Allofs’, work together in the field photographing wildlife and landscapes in remote corners of the world.
Published worldwide in books, calendars, advertising, galleries and magazine publications such as National Geographic, Africa Geographic, Geo, Smithsonian, Outside, Outdoor, Time, and many more, Jami will talk to us about her life as a professional nature photographer and take us behind the scenes. She will also share intimate details on how to survive in the bush, real-life daily encounters with wildlife, and the challenges that she and her husband face while being isolated and alone for months at a time. . Photographs illustrating the quality of light will confirm the importance of patience and “waiting it out”.
Jami will tell us what equipment she uses to capture surprising images that are dangerous to photograph. Her daily real life encounters with wildlife will help us to understand what it is to be a true professional nature photographer.
Do you want to know how National Geographic photographers get their shots? Join us for an entertaining and educational evening that will hopefully inspire you to get back to nature.
