Presentation on Environmental Portraiture

November 18, 2017 at 11:00AM

Monroe House

The Spilsbury Gallery will participate in the 10th annual FotoWeekDC, which will be held Nov. 11-19, by featuring mostly photos in the November exhibit and a special event Saturday, Nov. 18 from 11 am to 1 pm featuring photographer Jonathan Zuck. 

Zuck will offer a program called “Personalization and Integration: The Environmental Portrait,” on taking better environmental portraits. Whether you're using a $50,000 medium format digital camera or the new "Portrait Mode" on your iPhone, there are techniques and strategies specifically for taking better environmental portraiture. Zuck will look at the work of some of the best environmental portraitists as well as some of his own so-called Big Shots. Environmental portraits depict subjects in their environment in a manner that tells a story. 

Zuck is an award-winning commercial and fine art photographer, specializing in constructed imagery. His environmental portraits have won two PDN Annual awards and have been seen in galleries and homes in the U.S. and Europe.
