The Players Involved
Fundamentals of Exposure and Managing Your Digital Assets & The Digital Darkroom
Gary Sharlow, photographer for EcoSee Photography, owns a web hosting and design company specifically tailored to photographers. He sits on the environment committee for the North American Nature Photography association, has previously worked for the NPS in the area of population biology and has an educational background in conservation biology. He is a manager in the education division at the California Academy of Sciences and can frequently be found hiking and photographing on the trails of the various parks in the bay area.
Gaining a Sense of Place
Geoff Willard, Manager of Public Programming at the California Academy of Sciences, will lead the group through investigations of the natural and conservation history of Point Reyes. At the Academy, he has channeled his passion for engaging minds into the design of the museum's many live interpretive programs. He brings his years of experience in native habitat restoration and outdoor youth & adult education in Point Reyes and Marin County to this field excursion, as well as his memories of a summer spent as a photographer in Sequoia National Park.
Suggested Field Gear
The word of choice in the bay area is "layers". You should be prepared for all kinds of weather and expect conditions to change rapidly while you are in the field. Among the things you should have in your pack: water, layered clothing, comfortable trail shoes, sunscreen, a hat, extra socks sunglasses, a rain jacket (rain not likely but possible), your camera and a tripod. This is not an all inclusive list and it is up to you to be prepared to go into the field where we may hike as many as five miles over the course of the day. Please check the weather the night before and plan accordingly. We will travel rain or shine!
