Nature photography is an amazing pastime, and one thing in particular makes it even more enjoyable - community! Whether you’re a solitary shooter or part of a group that routinely goes out together, getting together with friends - either in person or virtually - to shoot and share our images is a great way to connect, get feedback, and grow in our craft.
For better or for worse, social media has come to dominate our interaction with our peers over the last few years, but there are still plenty of ways for us to be a part of a broader, in-person photography community, be it through meeting up with our pals, joining a camera club, participating in workshops or attending a conference. In this talk, we’ll look at the various ways to connect with others and the benefits of being a social shooter!
Shane Turgeon is an award-winning nature photographer focused on landscapes, the night sky, storms, and wildlife. His work has been featured by Canadian Geographic, the Natural Landscape Photography Awards, PhotoLife magazine, F-stop Collaborate and Listen, Black Rapid, the CBC and more. In 2022 Shane was short-listed for the prestigious Astronomy Photographer of the Year award from the Royal Museums Greenwich in London.
While pursuing nature and landscape photos for his own personal pleasure are his primary focus in photography, he also has a keen passion for sharing both his art and the mental health benefits of nature photography and passing on his experience and knowledge to other photographers. In 2022 Shane created the Lightchasers Nature Photography Conference in Pincher Creek, Alberta; an annual event which brings photographers together to learn from some of the top names in Canadian nature photography with an emphasis on education, exploration and community building.
