Tuesday night I attended a fantastic presentation by adventure photographer Tyler Stableford. The event was put on by the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) New England Chapter and the Commercial Industrial Photographers of New England (CIPNE). Hosting the festivities was photo store/studio EP Levine. Tyler is a Canon sponsored, "Explorer of Light" and also shoots for Getty Images.
Tyler showed some of his work and explained his philosophy and some technical aspects from some of his shoots. Tyler came across as a very considerate and passionate photographer who is deeply committed to creating images that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also that tell a story and communicate to the viewer in a powerful way.
He also premiered a new short film on a para-olympic skier that was very moving. The film is a documentary on an Iraqi Army Ranger that lost both legs in an explosion, and just four years later, was competing against world-class talent as a skier. Incredible stuff for sure.
You can keep up to date with Tyler's work at his blog.
