Frans Lanting Seminar

Just a quick review of the Frans Lanting seminar that I was able to attend in Sydney this past weekend. Frans’ seminar was titled “Every Picture Tells a Story”.

Frans is a very engaging presenter and you can really feel his passion for nature photography. It was wonderful to listen to him talk about the process that he goes through when going on a photo shoot for National Geographic. How he conceptualises his images, be it landscape or wildlife, was very refreshing. Like all great nature photographers, these wonderful photos rarely just happen, he has spent numerous hours in the field, waiting and planning to get the image.

The seminar was organised by another famous photographer, at least in Australia, Ken Duncan. Ken was also running an exhibition of Frans’ works at his gallery in Erina and The Rocks in Sydney. To be able to view Frans’ work framed on the wall of the gallery was outstanding. These images look fantastic in the books that Frans has published but nothing compared to seeing them printed big.
