Photographer Lewis Kemper

Photographer Lewis Kemper

Internationally known nature photographer Lewis Kemper will give a free presentation, entitled "An Evening with Lewis Kemper: Light and Composition and a Photographer's Impression of Tibet," on Thursday, Oct. 21, from 6:30-8:30pm at Folsom Lake College (10 College Parkway) in the Large Lecture Hall (Buckeye Hall room FL3-173). This free multimedia event and world premiere of Kemper's recent trip to the Himalayas is open to the community. A $1 fee is charged for parking.

Along with about 62 other photographers worldwide, Kemper is a member of one of the most prestigious photography groups, the Canon Explorers of Light, sponsored by Canon U.S.A., Inc. Canon has assembled this group of the world's leading professional photographers to provide insight, inspiration, and education to future generations of creative photographers.

Using film and now digital media, Kemper has been photographing the natural beauty of North America in color for over three decades, in the process traveling to nearly all the states in the country, from Alaska to Florida. His work has been published in magazines, books, and calendars worldwide. Before moving west, he received a BA in Fine Art Photography from the George Washington University in 1976. The grandeur of the West beckoned and Kemper moved to Yosemite National Park, where he lived for 11 years. From 1978 until 1980, he worked at The Ansel Adams Gallery in the Yosemite Valley.

Kemper, now based in Sacramento, teaches photography for many organizations including Palm Beach Photographic Center, Light Photography Workshops, Aspen Photo Workshops, Santa Fe Workshops, and BetterPhoto.com. He is the author of Photographing Yosemite Digital Field Guide and The Yellowstone Photographer's Handbook. He was the photographer for Ancient Ancestors of the Southwest, published by Graphic Arts Publishing Company. His work has been published in numerous books, including publications by The Sierra Club, The National Geographic Society, and many more. His pictures have appeared in calendars published by Audubon, The Sierra Club, and others.

Currently, Kemper is a contributing editor to Outdoor Photographer and Digital Photo magazines. His monograph, Capturing the Light, won the People's Choice Awards in Fine Art in the 2009 Photography.Book.Now competition. His work is on display at the Sacramento Art Complex, 2110 K Street, Suite 18, in Sacramento.
