Bristol Chamber of Commerce To Host Digital Photography Workshop

September 29, 2010
Photographer and digital artist, Malcolm J. Wilson, will lead a basic digital photography workshop on October 2 at the Bristol Chamber of Commerce.

For nearly 20 years, Wilson has worked with digital photography. Before moving to Bristol, Tennessee several years ago, he worked as a commercial photographer in Cincinnati for 19 years. He currently uses his digital photography skills in advertising and marketing work and for his personal fine arts projects. His photography has been exhibited in both the Appalachian region and nationally, and his work is included in permanent collections at the University of Kentucky Appalachian Center, Southeast Community College Appalachian Archives, The Kennedy Center Gallery and Archives and the Julia Louis Dreyfuss Collection.

“With the explosive growth in popularity of digital cameras in the last few years, so many people now have access to the convenience and ease of digital photography,” says Wilson. “However, the full potential of a digital camera rarely gets explored, and there is so much more to creating memorable photographs than just utilizing the auto setting,” he added.

The workshop will be conducted 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Participants should bring their own digital camera and equipment. A beginner’s workshop focusing on composition, lighting and camera settings, the day also includes lecture and fieldwork in the morning, with students capturing the unique splendor of historic downtown Bristol. Classroom reconvenes after lunch (on your own) followed by a critique of work.

Cost for the workshop is $69 for Bristol Chamber members, and $89 for non-members, with proceeds benefitting the Bristol Convention & Visitors Bureau. Class size is limited, and payment is due in advance, no later than September 24. Make checks payable to: The Bristol Convention & Visitors Bureau, 20 Volunteer Parkway, Bristol, TN 37620

For additional information or to register, call (423) 989-4850, or email reservations@bristolchamber.org. The Bristol Chamber of Commerce is located at 20 Volunteer Parkway, Bristol, TN.
