Elevate your photography skills at Mono Lake with Dan Zimmermann

This post was written by Caroline Bottega, 2019 Mono Lake Intern.

In the age of cell phone cameras and instant photography, numerous photos can be taken in rapid succession without a second thought. However, upon later review, it may feel as though your photos still fall short of capturing the true magic of the image before your eyes.

Zimmermann expressed an interest in photography from the early age of nine, first visiting the Sierra Nevada in 1985 and returning nearly every year since. His work has been heavily influenced by Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. Through his presentation he will impart new ways of looking at a landscape to elevate anyone’s photography skills!

The session will begin at 4:00pm in the Mono Lake Committee gallery with a short presentation, followed by a short walk down at Mono Lake, with time for questions and discussions. This is a free, first-come, first-served event; we hope to see you there!
