Michael Zide and Kemachat Sirichanvimol, B.A.
Streams, forests and quarries provide ideal subjects to discover gesture and metaphor in the landscape. Utilize light, weather, texture and form to reflect a more personal vision. This summer workshop combines the talents of two photo educators: Michael Zide, instructor at Hallmark Institute of Photography and a Moab Master and Manfrotto Mentor, specializing in fine art black and white landscape photograph, and Kemachat Sirichanvimol, former editorial photographer at Bower Publications, New York City and commercial photography instructor at Hallmark Institute of Photography. Instructors will be teaching from Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Lightroom 4.

Michael Zide
In the world of black and white landscape photography, Michael Zide has a most selective eye. He possesses that rare quality of artful seeing, bringing his sensitivity to gesture and mood to every image. Sensual and tactile, his work elicits a visceral response that draws the viewer in to demand a second look and a more thoughtful response. His personal vision began as a child after the otherworldly experience of waking to find a luminous blanket of snow covering his Southern California home. That first snowfall set in motion both the search for a view of equal enchantment, as well as a visual memory in search of meaning. Not surprisingly, many of his photographs are inspired by the striking drama of winter ice and snow transforming the New England landscape.
